Indeed, beauty really is in the eye of the beholder!
Pamela Anderson is widely seen as one of the sexiest women of all time, but ironically, the Baywatch bombshell didn't always agree with that assessment. As the 47-year-old actress explains to Parade, it took decades to believe she was beautiful. "I've just signed with Next Modeling agency for commercials and appearances. That is funny. I've never felt pretty enough to be a model," the activist admits. "I think I've provoked feelings with how I look. But not as a beauty but as a mischievous little rascal!"
Wait, what?! Is she serious?!
"I've always been a tomboy. That was never the first thing on my list," says Anderson, who has more Playboy covers than any other woman. "My mom always told me beauty comes from within. And I know that's maybe a cliché, but I do believe that. And I think that's what lasts forever."
"I don't really feel like I want to chase youth. I want to get old. I want to experience all the seasons of my life. I just don't want to be afraid of it," Anderson continues. "And I think in this industry you're surrounded by a lot of fear of getting older and fear of your looks leaving you. And I thought, 'Well, I'm lucky then, because I never really felt that great looking.' I felt like I had fun. I felt like I could be sexy. I could be provocative and I could use my image to get attention for things that I cared about."
