Pamela Anderson feels ‘hurt’ by the creators of ‘Pam and Tommy’.
The biographical drama series explored Pamela’s romance with music star Tommy Lee, and the 55-year-old actress admitted she was frustrated with the Hulu show.
She asked: “How are they allowed to do this?”
Lily James played Pamela in the show, but the blonde beauty doesn’t blame the British actress for agreeing to take part in the series.
Pamela – who was married to Tommy between 1995 and 1998 – told the Guardian newspaper: “I heard she was nominated for an Emmy but maybe that was a joke.
“It’s not your fault; It’s work. But whoever created it – well, it just feels like something else was stolen.”
Sorry, but this video could not be loaded.
Lily, 33, underwent a dramatic transformation to play Pamela in the TV series.
The actress spent up to four hours a day doing her hair and makeup — but still enjoyed the experience.
Lily shared, “The great thing about being an actor is that you can do these polar opposites. Like I have brown frizzy hair and no makeup [in ‘Yesterday’]and then suddenly I’m transformed after four hours of this incredible hair and makeup team.
“It was great, I’m very happy. It’s like playing sham all the time.”
Lily also revealed that she is looking forward to watching Pamela’s documentary on Netflix, Pamela, a Love Story.
She said: “I can’t wait to see [Pamela’s documentary] and learn more.
“Obviously we can only do our best based on the information we had, so it’s so important that she can tell her story. I’ll be watching with the rest of the world. I’m excited to hear what she has to say and what it’s all about.”
