She used to run on the beach, but we saw her Tango and Cha Cha with lightning speed in the dance floor. Now Pamela Anderson is headed back to the ballroom as one of our most beautiful All-Stars!
A multi-talented model, actress, entrepreneur, writer, philanthropist, activist, spokesperson, designer and mother, Pamela Anderson is one of the most diversely talented stars in history.
Pamela follows her passions, whether it’s “Learning French in fast cars...” (A play she has written and will produce) or lending herself, with complete faith, as a death defying magician’s assistant in Las Vegas. As a film, television and musical theatre star, her resume speaks for itself, from the iconic hit Baywatch to the smash film Borat, Pamela regularly impacts popular culture. She has appeared on the cover of countless magazines throughout the globe including the cover of Playboy Magazine 14 times in America alone.
Beyond media, Pamela is an esteemed art collector of the likes of Richard Prince, Ed Ruscha, Jeff Koons, Marilyn Minter, Mel Ramos, Santé D’orazio, Terry Richardson, Luca Pizzaroni, Marc Quinn and David LaChapelle. After a fulfilling experience building her Malibu home, Pamela has also branched into design, currently heading up ATHASI, a firm with partner Josh Chrisant, that specializes in green architecture.
Pamela is also appearing in multiple campaigns for her comrade and mentor, the legendary Dame Vivienne Westwood. As a philanthropist, Pamela’s work and dedication is unmatched in the celebrity community. A long time supporter of PETA, she has also lent her time and resources to causes such as JP/HRO, Waves For Water, USO, Cool Earth, Sea Shepard Conservation Society (Pamela recently flew to Germany to defend Captain Paul Watson for his wrongful imprisonment), and The MAC Viva Glam 5 campaign raising awareness for AIDS testing around the world. Pamela is also producing a documentary series with activist Paul Manley in Canada called Whatever It Takes, showcasing people who dedicate their lives to a cause at all costs.
Full of surprises, and always one to pursue new passions, Pamela excelled as a participant and competitor on the smash-hit ABC series Dancing with the Stars. Her hard work and talents caught the attention of the musical theatre community and she is on the cusp of announcing an incredible project that will serve as the next chapter in the career of this powerful woman, devoted mother, sex symbol and style icon who continues to inspire fans across the globe.
