Pamela Anderson “can’t wait” to get older, turning her hair “naturally gray”
Pamela Anderson may be a sex symbol, but she’s not afraid to have a few wrinkles.
On Dax Shepard’s podcast, Beach Rescue alum Armchair Expert, 55, explained that while there are many “classic beauties” who “have a very difficult time aging,” she’s never thought about it.
“I can’t wait to see myself get older,” Anderson told Shepherd, whose new documentary, “Pamela: A Love Story,” is now available on Netflix. “I’ve never felt like I’m some big beauty, never, no, just kind of funny looking.”
“I always said I would recognize myself when I got older in the mirror,” the blonde added. “I don’t want to chase [aging], I don’t want to do all the crazy things to myself.”
She continued, “I want my hair to be a natural gray, with my little straw hat on and no makeup. I mean, that’s the state I’m comfortable in.”
Anderson later admitted that the pressure to wear makeup grew as she got older – including from her two sons, Dylan, 25, and Brandon, 26, and ex-husband Tommy Lee, who encouraged her while promoting the documentary and her new memoir Makeup, love, Pamela.
“When I used to wear makeup, people said don’t wear makeup. Now that I’m older, I kind of just want it to happen,” she joked.
Anderson expressed similar sentiments when he appeared on the Howard Stern Show earlier this month.
“I’ve never felt like I’m a big beauty. So, I don’t think I’m going to lose as much as other people do,” she told Stern. “I just said, ‘I’ll be fine,’ and I think that came through in the documentary. I mean, that’s me, I’m almost 56 years old. I’m not going to worry about it. We all want to look our best, but I’ve never really worried about that.”
The star went on to explain that she gained nearly 25 pounds while writing the book.
“My body was changing,” she told Stern and Robin Quivers. “I thought, oh, maybe I’m just getting older, that’s all. I was walking around in a robe and I looked ridiculous, and my mom said, “You don’t want to show off your body anymore.” I just thought, ‘What figure?'”
