Pamela Anderson has seemingly not been won over by Lily James’ sensational transformation into her younger self, reportedly describing the TV series the actor is set to star in as a ‘cheap knockoff’.
Lily, 32, has been cast as Pamela in upcoming TV drama Pam and Tommy, with The Falcon and The Winter Soldier star Sebastian Stan, 38, playing her first husband, rock musician Tommy Lee.
First look pictures of the actors in character were recently released by Hulu, with Lily and Sebastian astonishing fans by looking utterly unrecognisable in their 1990s-inspired get-ups.
While the photographs definitely excited fans eager to see the limited series, which will centre on the former couple’s notorious sex tape, according to a friend of Pamela’s, the Baywatch star is not interested in the slightest.
‘Pamela has no intention of watching this God awful show, absolutely not. Never,’ they purportedly told The Sun.
‘She’s never heard of the actors playing her or Tommy, and doesn’t care to know them.’
They added that Pamela and her family ‘think the show is a cheap knockoff’, stating: ‘The whole thing is a joke to them.’
While the friend said that Pamela declined to be consulted on the production after being contacted by producers, they said that she isn’t pleased about the TV series ‘dredging up’ the leak of her and Tommy’s sex tape.
Pamela and Tommy wed in 1995 on a beach in Cancun, after knowing each other for just four days.
They were married for three years and share two sons together – Brandon Thomas, born in 1996, and Dylan Jagger, born in 1997.
After filming their sexual activities on a videotape during their honeymoon, the tape was stolen from their home and distributed online.
Seth Rogen, who is an executive producer on Pam and Tommy, is playing Rand Gauthier, the man who stole and released the tape.
After Pamela and Tommy sued Internet Entertainment Group, the distributor of the tape, they reached a settlement under which the video was made available to the public again.
Other actors starring in the upcoming Hulu show include Nick Offerman, Taylor Schilling, Andrew Dice Clay, Pepi Sonuga, Spencer Granese, and Mozhan Marnò.
On Christmas Eve 2020, Pamela married her bodyguard, Dan Hayhurst, during an intimate ceremony on the grounds of her home on Vancouver Island, Canada.
Metro.co.uk has contacted Pamela Anderson’s representatives for comment.
Pam and Tommy will air later this year on Hulu.
