Pamela Anderson looks unrecognizable before fame in new stills from documentary

Pamela Anderson was seen in striking throwback snaps from her pre-fame days and raising her sons in an emotional first look at her upcoming documentary – PAMELA, a love story – which aims to tell her ‘real story.’

The Netflix documentary will chart 55-year-old Anderson’s rise to fame from Canadian girl next door to mega famous Hollywood pinup, as well as her rocky romances and infamous sex tape scandal with ex-husband Tommy Lee.

First stills from the documentary show the star as a young teen before her glamorous transformation as she poses with brunette locks and no make-up while striking a playful pose with her tongue out.

Another snap sees the star looking stunning with platinum blonde locks, heavy eye make-up and a glossy pout as she poses in the 90s, during her rise to fame.

Before: Pamela Anderson was seen in striking throwback snaps from her pre-fame days in a first-look at her upcoming documentary – PAMELA, a love story – which aims to tell her ‘real story.

A sweet snap shows Pamela planting a tender kiss on one of her sons as a baby, while in the present day an emotional Pamela stares out to sea and takes dance lessons.

This comes after the bombshell reportedly felt ‘violated’ by the Pam & Tommy Hulu series, which starred Brit actress Lily James and Sebastian Stan as Tommy and depicted how the beauty’s career ended after her sex tape was stolen then sold.

The series, which became a worldwide success, was done seemingly without the approval of those involved in the crime – with Anderson portrayed as a victim.

PAMELA, a love story is directed by Ryan White with Anderson’s son Brandon Thomas Lee a producer, alongside Jessica Hargrave and Julia Nottingham.

There will be interviews with Anderson and new images from her collection as well as notes from her journals.

In March, Anderson announced the documentary by sharing a handwritten note, which read that she was ‘not a victim but a survivor.’

The note boasted a Netflix letterhead with a red lipstick kiss mark at the bottom and stated: ‘My life/ A thousand imperfections/ A million misperceptions/ Wicked, wild and lost/ Nothing to live up to /I can only surprise you /Not a victim, but a survivor / And alive to tell the real story,’ the note said.

Brandon reposted Pam’s note to his Instagram story and placed emphasis on emphasizing ‘the real story.’

Her other son Dylan Jagger Lee did the same.

According to the streaming service, the activist ‘is ready to tell her story in a new documentary.’

They continued: ‘The film, which has been in the making for several years, will feature the pop culture icon setting the record straight as she looks back on her professional path and her personal journey.’

There has been an intense focus on Pamela ever since the series Pam & Tommy debuted.

Back in 2021 Anderson reportedly branded Pam And Tommy, about her romance with Tommy Lee, ‘a joke and cheap knock-off’.

Insiders told The Sun that the star considers the ‘God awful’ program ‘a joke’ and has never heard of Lily or Sebastian, who have already been praised for their transformation – although seemingly without Pamela’s seal of approval.

Nominated: Lily James...

Nominated: Actress Lily recently received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series, Anthology Series, or a Motion Picture Made for Television courtesy of her role as Anderson in Pam & Tommy

The source said: ‘One of the iconic star’s friends told The Sun: ‘Pamela has no intention of watching this God awful show, absolutely not. Never…

‘She’s never heard of the actors playing her or Tommy, and doesn’t care to know them. She and her family think the show is a cheap knock-off.’

The insider then added: ‘The whole thing is a joke to them.’

MailOnline contacted representatives for Pamela for comment at the time.
