Working In Playboy Was Like ‘Family Affair’, Says Pamela Anderson
Former ‘Baywatch’ star Pamela Anderson has claimed working in ‘Playboy’ was like a ‘family’ affair.
The former model who first posed for the adult publication at the age of 22 insists she never felt exploited by the magazine's founder Hugh Hefner when she stripped for pictures and was always comfortable in his company, a media source reported.
"It felt like a real family environment. Once I got to know Hugh Hefner I saw that he was, in fact, a real supporter of women. 'Playboy' wasn't exploitative at all and it was my decision," she said.
The 44-year-old also revealed that she was encouraged to flash her flesh by her mother who thought it would help make her more feminine after she was approached to pose while working as a waitress. "My mom was supportive - she told me to go for it. I was always a tomboy and she thought it would be good to look back on one day," she said.
