Pamela Anderson painted a complex picture of her relationship with controversial data-leaker Julian Assange while speaking to Piers Morgan on “Good Morning Britain”.
Before diving in to a conversation about Assange, Anderson shared her recipe for self-preservation with Morgan.
When asked how she preserves herself so well, the former “Baywatch” star gave all credit to her diet. “I’m vegan, that’s it,” Anderson told the show. “Don’t eat meat, it’s bad for the environment, it’s bad for you,” she added. “If you eat less meat, you’re doing something better for the environment.”
Anderson, 50, also talked about her relationship with Assange. “It’s not comfortable,” behind the doors of the Ecuadorian embassy she confessed to co-host Susanna Reid. “He’s got such a great perspective on the world and life and to see somebody fight for so many people,” she said of the controversial figure. “He never compromises… and he is determined to help people have the information they need to make better choice[s] and stop war.”
When asked about the nature of her relationship with Assange, Anderson said, “We’re friendly, yes. Very friendly… I love Julian, he is one of the most interesting people I have ever met. He is very brave and there is nothing sexier than courage.”
When asked directly if they were romantically involved, Anderson said she loves Assange but already has a romantic partner.
Anderson also recently made headlines for asking influential TV personality Kim Kardashian to abandon real fur products and make a positive difference in the world.
The former “Baywatch” star ran into the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star at a show at New York Fashion Week this month. Their meeting motivated Anderson to pen an open letter to Kardashian.
“Dear Kim, It was lovely seeing you at New York Fashion Week,” she wrote in a letter published by The Sun. “I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know you over the years, and I can tell you’re a good person with a big, beautiful heart. I’m writing to ask you to extend your compassion to real fashion victims — the animals who are violently killed in the fur trade — by swearing off fur this winter.”
“I think you’d be horrified to learn that every single fur farm that PETA has exposed has been beyond cruel.”
Anderson, 50, cited Gisele Bundchen as a fellow model who has stopped using fur. “You know I know you,” she continued. “And you can be a hero for animals as well as a great example to all your beautiful followers by swearing off fur.”
“Please do the right thing,” the Canadian concludes.
The “Baywatch” has been a committed activist for animal rights and has worked on several campaigns with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).
