Pamela Anderson biography

Pamela Anderson was born on July 1, 1967, in Ladysmith, British Columbia, Canada.

Soon after Pamela was born, her parents, an oven repairman and a waitress, moved to Comox, British Columbia, about 450 km north of Vancouver. It was there one day in a library that Pamela Lee Anderson's modeling career would start.

Pamela was sitting listening to a story with a group of other children when a photographer took a picture of her that won the hearts of everyone who saw it. It was quickly copyrighted and placed in every library in British Columbia.

Her teenage years were nothing out of the ordinary; she had braces and was small-chested. She excelled in every sport she played, earning the nickname "Rubber Band" for her flexibility.

After graduating from Highland Secondary School in 1985, her yearbook entry stated that her hope in life was "To be a California Beach Bum." Pamela Lee moved to Vancouver when she was 21 to get a taste of the big city and move on with her life. She was working as a fitness instructor when her direction in life changed.

It was the summer of 1989 when close friends of Pamela Lee Anderson invited her to go to a Canadian Football League game with them. One of her friends was a representative of Labatt's breweries.

A cameraman was roaming the crowd looking for someone to put up on the big screen when he found Pamela. The place erupted when he put her bright smiling face on the net! Labatt's noted the response this woman generated and the fact that she was wearing a Labatt T-shirt that her friend had given her. Labatt's offered Pam a job modeling as the "Blue Girl" for their products, and Pamela's posters were all over the walls of bars and restaurants in Canada.

Ken Honey, a freelance photographer, took a few pictures of Pamela and had her send them to Playboy. Playboy seized the opportunity, and Pamela went to Los Angeles to do the cover of their October '89 issue. The Playboy spread launched Pamela's career, giving her small parts on various television shows. Then, in 1991, he starred in the role of "Lisa," the "Tool-Time-Girl" on A.B.C. television's "Home Improvement."

David Hasselhoff was a fan of the show, and when he saw Pamela in the role of "Lisa," he knew he had found a new lifeguard for his new series "Baywatch." C. J. Parker, Pamela's character name on Baywatch, was born. Pamela was immediately drawn to Baywatch, and she says that the character of C.J. herself are very similar to each other.

Pamela's grandfather Herman, a native of Finland, taught Pamela to believe in "New Age Thinking," crystals, meditation, and dream interpretation. Pamela's character C.J. Baywatch portrays many of the same views. Pamela has appeared in several other roles outside Baywatch, including an uncredited role in the 1992 flop, "The Taking of Beverly Hills." She then went on to play "Felicity" in the thriller "Snapdragon." Highly recommend this one if you're a Pam fanatic.

In 1994, she played the role of "Sarah" in the HBO film "Raw Justice" with David Keith. Mickey Spillane's "Mike Hammer" detective series came later that year, and Pamela found herself playing the wonderful "Velda." In 1995, Pamela played a quirky artist in the T.V. series "The Evolution of Mr. E.", adapted from H.G. Wells' book of the same name.

On New Year's Eve 1994, Pamela attended a party in New York where she met Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee. He came right up to her and licked her face! They talked, and after he asked her several times for her phone number, she finally gave in and let him have it. Tommy called Pamela again and again over the next few weeks to try and arrange a date, and in the first week of February 1995, they succeeded, only to be canceled at the last minute.

Pam had been whisked away to Cancun, Mexico, to do a photo shoot for her sunscreen product line. Determined to win over Pamela Lee Anderson at all costs, Tommy followed her to Cancun. After four days of courtship and endless parties, the two were married on a beach. Pamela wearing a white bikini, and Tommy wearing a set of shorts. After returning to L.A., they got wedding rings tattooed on their fingers, inscribed with each other's names.

At odds with Nick Stevens, her personal manager, Pamela accepted the futuristic bounty hunter "Barb Wire" role for Dark Horse Comics and Gramercy Pictures. He thought it would be a colossal mistake, but Pamela thought otherwise.

In May 1996, "Barb Wire" opened with the soundtrack featuring a song Tommy wrote, "Planet Boom." During the filming of "Barb Wire," Pamela had a miscarriage, and both Pamela and Tommy were devastated. There wasn't really anyone or anything to blame other than that Pamela, the hard worker, was simply overworked. The stress took its toll on Pamela, filming Baywatch for ten hours in the sun and then filming some more at the "Barbed Wire" set.

Pamela has starred in her own series, "V.I.P. had a baby, has several tattoos and breast augmentations, and has now become one of the most photographed and widely admired women worldwide.
