Pamela Anderson refuses to read letter from Pam & Tommy's Lily James

Pamela Anderson refuses to read letter from Pam & Tommy's Lily James

Pamela Anderson did not work on the eight-part series made about her and her ex-husband, Tommy Lee

Pamela Anderson refused to read a letter sent to her from Pam & Tommy actor Lily James.

The former Baywatch star remained tight-lipped when the series was released, but has said she won’t watch it.

Anderson did not collaborate on the eight-part series, which saw James star as Anderson alongside Sebastian Stan as Anderson’s ex-husband Tommy Lee.

The series centres on their high-profile relationship and subsequent marriage in the 1990s, during the course of which a sex-tape of theirs was stolen and shared without their consent.

In a recent interview with The New York Times, Anderson revealed she hadn’t watched the show and said the events covered in the series were ‘already hurtful enough the first time’ and that she wasn’t in any rush to watch the show.

She added: "It's like one of those things where you're going, 'Really?' People are still capitalising off that thing?"

Anderson also revealed that James had reached out to after taking on the role, telling her that she wanted to ‘honour’ her while starring in the show.

The New York Times noted ‘Anderson snubbed her, and a scanned copy of that letter still sits in Ms. Anderson’s inbox somewhere, unread’.

Meanwhile, Anderson recently announced her own show - a documentary titled Pamela, a love story, which is set to land on Netflix that will give exclusive access into her private life.

Announcing the news, Netflix tweeted a handwritten note from Anderson that read: “My life / A thousand imperfections / A million misperceptions / Wicked, wild and lost / Nothing to live up to / I can only surprise you / Not a victim, but a survivor / And alive to tell the real story,” alongside the caption: “Pamela Anderson is ready to tell her story in a new documentary.

“The film, which has been in the making for several years, will feature the pop culture icon setting the record straight as she looks back on her professional path and her personal journey.”

The documentary is also her chance to give her side of the story about the stolen tape, with Anderson telling Vanity Fair: “Nobody knew the truth—even I don’t know 100 percent of what happened, but I think what is most important is to share my human feelings and how much it hurt and how it undeniably defined me moving forward—in my career and my relationships.”
