Actress Pamela Anderson has decided to take control of the narrative and stop every fake story that got out in the past years. From Baywatch to her relationship with Tommy Lee to the infamous sex tape theft that forever changed her life and career, her life has largely played out on the public stage, with all the praise, scrutiny and exploitation that comes with it. She sets the record straight with Pamela, A Love Story, a new documentary film from director Ryan White, which is so much more than a story about Anderson, it’s one told by Anderson herself.
Now in her 50s, Anderson reclaims her story in the new documentary and divulges intimate, previously unshared details about her early life in Ladysmith, British Columbia, and her rise to fame as a model and actor. She also discusses her lifelong pursuit of love, which led to her highly publicized and often turbulent romances. With never-before-seen personal photos, journal entries and thoughtful introspection, the film is a first-person account of what it really means to be an icon, a sex symbol, an actor and a mother of two — all while everyone is watching.
The documentary Pamela, A Love Story will premiere on Netflix on January 31st.
