Film Producer Jon Peters Marries Pamela Anderson After 'Wanting' Her For 35 Years
Pamela Anderson has tied the knot with movie mogul Jon Peters, who confessed to 'wanting' her for 35 years.
On 20 January, the pair married during a private ceremony in Malibu after first dating over 30 years ago.
Speaking about his 52-year-old former Baywatch wife, Peters, 74, told The Hollywood Reporter: "Pamela has never seen her full potential as an artist. She has yet to shine in a real way. There is much more to her than meets the eye, or I wouldn't love her so much.
"There are beautiful girls everywhere. I could have my pick, but - for 35 years - I've only wanted Pamela. She makes me wild - in a good way. She inspires me. I protect her and treat her the way she deserves to be treated."
Peters is a former hairdresser turned film producer - he worked on A Star Is Born, which featured Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper. It went on to win Best Original Song at The Oscars. He's also produced Batman and Batman Returns as well.
He met Anderson in the mid-80s at the Playboy Mansion not long after she made the move from British Columbia to Los Angeles.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter in 2017 as a tribute to the late Hugh Hefner, Peters said: "I walked in and saw this little angel sitting at the bar. It was Pammy. She was like 19. I knew she would be a big star.
"We ended up living together. Of course, Hefner loved her and saw her beauty. Pamela was a girl who with no makeup was gorgeous. She was very smart and very talented. I tried to talk her out of doing Playboy. I said, 'Don't do Playboy. Focus on a serious career.' She said, 'You're nuts.' She wanted to do Playboy, and she went on to do 13 covers."
Peters will be Anderson's fifth husband (and, funnily enough, she will be his fifth wife as well).
Following their wedding Anderson shared a poem about Peters with The Hollywood Reporter, which read: "Jon is the original 'bad boy' of Hollywood -
no one compares -
I love him deeply like family.
His life used to scare me.
So much for a girl like me.
Now I've seen more of life
He's been there all along.
Never failed me -
I'm ready now
he's ready too -
and respect each other -
We love each other
without conditions -
I'm a lucky woman -
God has a plan."
