Pamela Anderson married Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee 96 hours after they first met. The Baywatch star wore a bikini instead of a wedding dress and gave birth to their first son, Brandon Thomas Lee, in 1996. In 1997, the couple welcomed Dylan Jagger Lee into the world, and then in 1998, they were divorced. It was a classic California coup de foudre (with one or two sex tapes to show for it), but the important thing is that Anderson and Lee produced two charming, handsome, and ambitious offspring to carry the torch.
While Brandon Lee, 20, and Dylan Jagger, 18, both took most of the summer off to surf and skate (Brandon is also currently on a road trip), the brothers had a busy season attending men’s fashion shows like Dolce & Gabbana in Milan and before that, Saint Laurent in Los Angeles — a brand for which Dylan has also modeled…shirtless. They grew up attending various Hollywood functions with their parents (events with mom, concerts with dad), so it’s no surprise that Brandon now wants to be an actor and Dylan a musician. In the fall, Dylan will head back to school, but in the meantime, they both took the time to reflect on what they’ve learned from their bombshell mom.
Pamela Anderson was spotted leaving Montréal Airport on Friday after reportedly shooting a ‘secret cameo in a network TV series.’
The Canadian-American 49-year-old – sporting a messy updo – was dressed conservatively in a grey twinset, chunky black heels, and Céline sunglasses for her flight.
The People Garden actress revealed on Tuesday that Baywatch producers are now interested in her sons Dylan, 18, and Brandon, 20, with ex-husband #1 Tommy Lee.
‘They’re going to do another series and they’ve already asked if my boys would be in it,’ Pamela told the Montreal Gazette on Tuesday.
‘I don’t know [if they said yes]. It’s a little ways away. We’ll make that decision down the road. Brandon’s the actor. Dylan’s a musician.’
Anderson and David Hasselhoff both have cameos in Seth Gordon’s 2017 big-screen reboot of their NBC series starring Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Zac Efron.
When the studio asked the thrice-divorced animal rights activist to return as a ‘favour,’ she quipped: “I do a lot of favours for animals, but not for Paramount.”‘
Still, the Connected actress considers herself ‘lucky’ for having played Los Angeles lifeguard C.J. Parker from 1992-1997 in the campy action show.
While in her native Canada, Pamela also worked on the French-language, six-episode miniseries Sur-Vie, which premieres on the specialty channel Séries+ next spring.
On playing Hollywood star-turned-reality show host Raquel Rose, Anderson gushed: ‘I’m having a great time. She’s such a cool character!’
‘But it’s like a bit of an acid trip,’ the 15-time Playboy cover girl – whose Hepatitis C was cured November 6 – laughed.
‘I’m walking around and everyone is speaking French and I know very, very little…I think it’s good for who I’m playing, because she’s in her own little bubble.’
Virtually from the start, Pamela Anderson was famous for being Pamela Anderson.
She was discovered in 1989 at a football game at BC Place stadium in Vancouver when a shot of her appeared on the Jumbotron. She happened to be wearing a Labatt T-shirt, which prompted a marketing executive to sign her up as a model for Labatt Blue ads.
Then came her first Playboy cover, also in 1989. By the time she graced the front of the mag once again this year — for the last issue to feature full nudity — she had been on the cover of Playboy more than any other model.
But she is best known for starring in Baywatch, the campy drama about lifeguards at a beach in Los Angeles that became an unlikely smash hit worldwide in the 1990s. The defining image of Anderson is of her in the trademark red Baywatch one-piece bathing suit.
Since then, she hasn’t exactly burned up the small or big screens, partly because of her focus on raising her two sons. She has often been fodder for gossip columnists, notably for her rocky marriages to Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee and rocker Kid Rock.
She has also appeared on a bunch of reality-TV shows, which was good research for her role in the Quebec miniseries Sur-Vie, which is shooting in the Montreal area. In the French-language production, which will première on the specialty channel Séries+ next spring, Anderson plays Raquel Rose, a Hollywood star who is hosting a Québécois reality-TV show. Mariloup Wolfe portrays a young Quebec actress who agrees to be on the show. Sur-Vie is produced by Fabienne Larouche and Michel Trudeau from Montreal-based Aetios Productions.
