Pamela Anderson is undecided about accepting a part in the new ‘Baywatch’ film – because she doesn’t want to be the “old lady” on set.
The 48-year-old actress starred in the original TV series as blonde bombshell lifeguard C.J. Parker and her character is being portrayed by Kelly Rohrbach in the big screen remake.
Pamela has been offered a role in the movie but she’s nervous about appearing for just for nostalgia value, even though original Mitch Buchannon David Hasselhoff is going to appear alongside his replacement Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.
Speaking to the new issue of Harper’s Bazaar magazine, she said: “Well, they called me and asked me to be in it, but I haven’t decided yet. I don’t know. I don’t like remakes of TV shows and I kind of want to leave it as is and be remembered for that. I don’t know if I want to go on ‘Baywatch’ and be, like, the old lady working at a counter somewhere.”
Pamela starred on the TV series – which became a worldwide phenomenon – for five seasons between 1992 and 1997.
The Playboy cover star has surprisingly revealed she never wore sunscreen when shooting on location on the beach in Santa Monica, California because she didn’t want the chemicals from the UV protective lotion going into the sea.
She said: “I never wore sunblock, I didn’t really believe in it. I always felt that it was chemicals going into your skin and particles that go into the ocean. People always tell me, ‘You have to wear sunblock all over your face,’ so I have a natural sunblock that I use sometimes, but I’m just gonna go with it and see what age does to me because I need to be in the sun. The first season, they didn’t want me to wear makeup, they wanted me to be very natural. I said OK, but then I would go to Lexi’s [makeup artist Alexis Vogel] at three in the morning and she would put eyelashes and liner on me and we just created that look, then I would show up, and they’d go, ‘You’re already wearing makeup!’ And I’d say, ‘No I’m not!’ But then I’d get hit by a wave and my eyelashes would fall off and my makeup artist there would come up and go, ‘This is all that’s left of Pamela, I hope you’re happy – two little soaking wet eyelashes.’ But most of the time it would stay on.”
