There's no doubt about it: Brandon Lee inherited his mother's good looks!
The 18-year-old high school senior accompanied Pamela Anderson to Thursday's premiere of The Gunman at Regal Cinemas L.A. Live. While the actress, 47, showed plenty of cleavage and a whole lotta leg in a gold wrap dress, her son looked dapper in an all-black suit. "Date night with mama," Brandon tweeted.
Brandon is Pamela's elder son with ex-husband Tommy Lee; they are also parents to Dylan, 17. Thursday's outing marked the first time since 2002 that Pamela and Brandon posed on the red carpet together. However, the Baywatch bombshell isn't the only lady in Brandon's life these days. The DUFF's Bella Thorne tweeted, "@Sir_BrandonLee good luck at the premiere." Brandon tweeted, "@bellathorne thanks babe. Wish you could been my date, but I'm kind of a momma's boy."
After the premiere, Brandon told his Twitter followers that the "movie was great."
Pamela appeared to be in high spirits. One month ago, she filed for divorce from Rick Salomon. The TV star cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the breakup. Pamela and Rick, 47, first wed in 2007 but got an annulment two months later. The exes remarried in January 2014, but six months later, Pamela filed for divorce. In August 2014, she asked a judge to dismiss her divorce petition.
Though she's kissed a few frogs, Pamela hopes her sons won't repeat her mistakes.
"I want my kids to know how to look within themselves for strength," the Playboy model told People in the '90s. Acknowledging that they didn't have a traditional upbringing, she added, "Brandon thinks everyone's mom is on TV and everyone's dad is a rock star. [To other kids, they're like,] 'What band's your dad in?'"
For the most part, Pamela and Tommy were able to shield their sons from the spotlight. Still, she can't escape her past. When Borat was released in 2006, the comedy referenced her sex tape with Tommy. "I knew kids were going to watch the film and there was a reference to the tape in the movie and they're that age and, you know, people are going to start saying things," she explained to British talk show host Jeremy Kyle in 2009. "I just said, 'Look, Mommy and Daddy were massively in love, we videotaped everything, everything was videotaped, and you're probably going to hear about something at school."
In 2014, Pamela was again asked about her sons' reactions to the sex tape. "I don't know if they've seen it, but they know about it," she told Elle. "They know about everything. Stupid Internet. I don't know why everyone is so impressed with it."
Speaking to Parade in January, she said, "I want them to respect women. I say, 'Even if it's just for mom.' I haven't given them too many shining examples in our personal life. I still struggle with self worth and trying to fix people. I'm surrounded by broken toys. We learn a lot from our parents through example."
What have the boys taught her? "Respect, love, admiration. They believe in me like no one else," she said. "They know me. And laugh at my flaws. We are a close family. The three of us—the magic triangle."
