Pamela Anderson may be a Baywatch legend and one of the most enduring international sex symbols of the last two decades, but that doesn't mean she always feels at the top of her beauty game. The iconic blonde recently sat down with the folks at Buzzfeed. Here are the three best quotes from the interview:
On when she's felt most beautiful: "Well, it wasn't today (laughs). I'm kidding. Oh, god, I don't know if I ever really felt beautiful. I always feel like I don't — I don't, really."
On people trying to give her a make-under: "...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.'"
On considering herself a feminist: "I do, actually. I do. I think I'm in control of what I do and what I've done. I think that's the ultimate feminine power. Do as you want. Be who you want to be, and not for anybody else. As days go by, women are more and more empowered.'
