Pamela Anderson shares her feelings about Hulu Pam & Tommy, the dramatization of her and Tommy Lee’s sextape scandal, debuting in their upcoming Netflix documentary, Pamela, a love story.
The Hulu series starred Lily James as Anderson and Sebastian Stan as Lee. Anderson gave neither the show nor James her approval, although they tried to reach out to the former Baywatch Star.
Now in a first look interview with vanity fair, Anderson revealed that she learned about the Hulu series while filming the documentary, prompting a “painful aftershock of trauma.” Her reaction will be featured in the Netflix film.
She told the publication: “Nobody knew the truth – not even I know 100 percent what happened, but I think the most important thing is to share my human feelings and how much it hurts and how it has undeniably defined me, to move on – in my career and in my relationships.”
“I was very hesitant, but looking back I feel empowered,” Anderson told Netflix TUDUM about her decision to go to the doctor. “And I hope so [my story] inspires people to have a great time fucking and not worrying so much.”
Using footage from the actress’ personal archives, the film offers Anderson an opportunity to tell stories about her life in front of and behind the camera.
Director Ryan White (Good night Oppy) added, “We have this whole archive of Tommy and Pamela falling in love and I think our film is going to really humanize them. I think they’re often thought of as these larger than life… maybe even cartoon characters. If you look at this footage of their meeting, it’s really beautiful.”
Pamela, a love story Slated to launch on Netflix in the new year.
