Pamela Anderson on the ‘Pam & Tommy’ Mini-Series: ‘It Was Just Shocking’
Pamela Anderson is still not over Pam & Tommy, the Emmy-nominated Hulu mini-series about the fallout from the theft and release of Anderson and Tommy Lee’s sex tape.
Anderson famously had nothing to do with the series. Even when actress Lily James, who played Anderson, reached out to the actress, she declined the contact.
Anderson said in a new interview with Variety about the series, “It was just shocking. Tommy probably thought it was funny. I remember Tommy writing me a note saying, ‘Don’t let this hurt you like it did the first time,’ because he had heard through the kids that I was kind of struggling with the idea of bringing this all up again. I don’t think he was portrayed kindly. I just know that I refuse to watch it.”
The only thing related to the miniseries that Anderson saw were billboards advertising it. She said James and Sebastian Stan dressed as her and Lee “looked like a Halloween costume to me.”
While she called the people behind the mini-series “assh-les” that “still owe me a public apology,” she is interested in speaking with James now. Anderson told Variety she asked Netflix to invite James to the premiere of her new documentary Pamela: A Love Story. The new doc hits the streaming platform on January 31.
She said, “I think it’s hard to play somebody when you don’t know the whole picture. I said to Netflix, ‘I’d love to invite Lily to the premiere of the movie.’ I’ve got nothing against Lily James. I think that she’s a beautiful girl and she was just doing the job. But the idea of the whole thing happening was just really crushing for me.”
