Pamela Anderson will never watch Pam and Tommy
Pamela Anderson will ‘never watch’ ‘Pam and Tommy’.
The Hulu series tells the story of the theft and release of the ‘Baywatch’ star and then-husband Tommy Lee’s sex tape – with the couple played by Lily James and Sebastian Stan respectively – and a source close to Pamela says she has no plans to ever watch the program.
The insider told Entertainment Weekly, “I know she’ll never watch this. Not even years from now. Not even the trailer.”
Lily and the show’s bosses explained how they contacted Pamela about the show, but haven’t received a response and the insider confirms that she was asked the question several times – first” years ago” long before filming began and again when the show was “in post-production”.
The source confirmed that his approach differs from that of Tommy – who previously spoke to Stan about the show.
He said, “Tommy doesn’t get it. He’s in the same mindset he was back then: that all publicity is good publicity.”
Producers were able to do the show without Pamela’s permission after she opted out of the rights to an article in Rolling Stone magazine in 2014 and the source spoke out about the star’s treatment.
The insider said: “As Pamela’s friend, at least no one will ever ask me again if the tape was really stolen.
“But imagine if a celebrity today had their nudes leaked and then Hollywood recreated not just the crime but the actual nudes – that would never happen.
“In the 90s, Pamela’s body was deemed by a judge to be public property. There was no doubt that the tape was stolen property, but the court ruled that it was not private property. because his body belonged to the world.”
The source also claims that Pamela is “the exception to the rule” when it comes to the #MeToo movement.
It read: “Pamela is kind of always the exception to the rule. She’s always up for grabs. It’s messed up. Yes, they’re brief clips – but for me the most damning aspect is that (” Pam and Tommy” didn’t just tell the story, they recreated moments from the boat.”
