“I don’t know if I was a good actress”: Baywatch Fame Pamela Anderson Admits Her B**bs Made Her Career – “I was just part of the package”

Pamela Anderson first became famous for being the savior every person needed AKA a lifeguard on Baywatch, where she wouldn’t think twice about running to anyone’s aid, no matter how dire the situation looked. But in 1996, she found herself in murky waters with no one coming to her aid. A renovation job, a disgruntled contractor, a stolen safe, and a s*x tape that would ‘break the internet’, that is how Anderson fell from grace. But she is not on the lookout for redemption, as she admits that it is not she who had a career, not her acting skills to be precise.

Remember to always pay your contractor

Pamela Anderson‘s career took a serious hit in the aftermath of the release of her s*x-tape with Tommy Lee. The 54-minute video, which was believed to have been shot in the summer of 1995, was stolen by a contractor, who had not been paid his due sum of $20,000 for renovating their house.

Little did they know how much that $20,000 would go on to hurt them. Anguished by the deception, the contractor stole a safe from the couple’s house, which had the s*x tape. The tape halted Anderson’s career in its tracks and spelled her doom.

In the yet-to-be-released documentary, the Raw Justice star opened up about how the shooting on the show would actually work and why it made her feel that she wasn’t really the best of actresses. She said,

“I don’t know if I was a good actress, I didn’t know what I was doing. The director would tell us: ‘Pretend it’s real. Action!’. If a scene didn’t work, they’d say, ‘More seagulls’, and someone would throw biscuits”.

Reflecting, she admits that the direction of the show fueled her insecurities and made her who she is. It is the reason she is not on the lookout for redemption. All she is looking for is a chance to tell her story.
