The actress told the reporter, that she was painfully shy before she appeared on the cover of the famous fashion magazine.

The Barb Wire actress shared, “The shyness was something that was so debilitating. When I was little, I would wear a hat over my head and pull the hole closed so I could only see out this much.” She continued, “I hated the way I looked; I hated everything. I was so shy, and I always thought everybody was pretty, and I just didn’t have that confidence in myself.”

Pamela Anderson further said, “I did my first photo shoot with Playboy… it was the first flash when I opened my eyes, and it felt like I was falling off a cliff. It really felt like I was just allowing instead of trying to control. And it was my first feeling of freedom.
