Pamela Anderson, 45, has never felt "beautiful." The former Baywatch
babe - who has appeared on more Playboy
magazine covers than anyone else - insists she feels "different" now from how she looked in the 1990s and admits people often try to "tone down" her sexy side. She said: "I don't know if I ever really felt beautiful. I always feel like I don't - I don't, really. I don't know if it's because I'm so hot, but they definitely try to tone down my sex appeal. I think it's time, though - you know, you grow up and you change your look. I feel different from how I did in my Playboy days. Now, I think I'm in charge of toning down my look or not. I feel like as I'm getting older, this is my version of toned down. I like it."
she has always wanted to be portrayed as "glamorous," despite producers of drama series Baywatch
- which she starred in from 1992 to 1997 - attempting to tone down her allure.
When asked if people ever try to make her under, she added to Buzzfeed: "Actually a lot of people, especially when I was on Baywatch
. They were insisting that I didn't wear eyelashes, but I said, 'I have my look, this is what I'm comfortable in.' Sometimes my eyelashes would roll up onto the beach and that's all that would be left of me. But I was determined to be glamorous. Oh, I loved it, I loved it. I thought, 'If you're going to be on TV, and if you're gonna be out and glamorous, the natural look can stay at home. If we're gonna do this, let's have fun with it!' I actually just did a shoot lately, and they took all the makeup off and put me in a ponytail, and I said, 'Well, OK, we'll try that.' "
