‘Pamela, A Love Story’ gives the Canadian-born actor a platform to tell her story, in her own words, for the very first time.
Pamela Anderson is ready to talk. The notoriously private star, whose very public trauma was rehashed in last year’s series Pam & Tommy, says she’s ready to “take control of the narrative for the first time” in the trailer for the forthcoming Netflix documentary Pamela, A Love Story.
“I blocked that stolen tape out of my life in order to survive, and now that it’s all coming up again, I feel sick,” Canadian-born Anderson says in the trailer, referring to her ex-husband Tommy Lee’s personal sex tape that was stolen from their home in the 1990s and uploaded to the internet as a pornographic film. 2022’s wildly popular Pam & Tommy recreated this ordeal, detailing not only how it led to the end of their tumultuous marriage, but the victim-blaming and trauma that Anderson endured because of it.
Here’s everything to know about Pamela, A Love Story.
