"It's really giving me nightmares. I have no desire to watch it. I'm not going to watch it," Pamela Anderson said in a new Netflix documentary coming out at the end of the month, Pamela, A Love Story, referring to the Hulu biographical drama series. Pam and Tommy", which appeared last year on Disney Plus.

The acclaimed drama series depicted the crisis in their marriage following the release in 1995 of a sex tape of her and her ex-husband, Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee, recorded privately during their honeymoon at their Los Angeles mansion.

"I've never watched the tape, so I'm not going to watch it. Nobody really knows what we went through. They should have gotten my permission."

These statements were added to Anderson's expression of dissatisfaction with the mini-series in the past, and her claims that no one helped her in the investigation conducted while working on the series.

In the series, the character of Anderson was played by the English actress Lily James, who was nominated for her role for the American Film Critics Association Award in the category of best actress, and the character of Tommy Lee was played by the American actor Sebastian Stan, who was praised by the critics.

Despite Anderson's claim that she was not helped in the investigation, it was published that after being cast in the role, Lily James sent Pamela Anderson a request to meet with her - but was not answered.

On January 31, the documentary "Pamela, a Love Story" directed by Ryan White, which is 112 minutes long, will be released on Netflix, in which the actress will tell not only about the sex tape scandal but also about her rise to stardom, about the "Gulf Watch" period and the high-profile relationships she had.

"I texted Tommy and said, 'How do you feel about all of this?', and he said, 'Pamela, don't let it hurt you like it did the first time,'" Anderson says in the Netflix documentary, "I still don't know who stole the tape. There's no point To think about it. The damage is done. Why would I want to go through this again? I pushed it out of my life. I had to. It was a survival mechanism, and now it's all happening again. My stomach feels like it just got punched. I don't feel good."



It was previously claimed that the sex tape was stolen in 1995 from a safe in the garage of their home in Los Angeles, while it was under renovation.

The couple then filed a complaint with the police and hired a private investigator.

In March 1996, Anderson and Lee took legal action against the publication of their sex tapes to try to prosecute the distributors of the recording.

Despite all this, over the years rumors spread that the couple leaked the tape themselves to make money.

On this, Anderson said: "I would never have made a profit from the stolen tape. You could have offered me hundreds of millions, a billion dollars, I would never have agreed. We never made a penny from it. You can't put a number on the amount of pain and suffering it caused. It caused me To feel that I'm a terrible person, that I'm just a piece of meat, that I'm 'such a whore'."

Anderson also said that people thought, "Oh, she was in Playboy, she loves being in Playboy," adding: "But Playboy was empowering for me. It was my choice. In this case it was like rape. We were newlyweds, we were naked all the time and we were filming each other. We were stupid. What they (the people in possession of the stolen tape) did was they found all the nudity they could and put it together. It was super humiliating, you become a caricature. It was different with me and Tommy. Tommy is a rock star and it's a bit adds to the picture. But I knew that at that point my career was over. I thought I could have a more serious career."



In an interview with Netflix, 28 years after the incident, Anderson also compared the pain of the distribution of the sex tape to a sexual assault she suffered as a child.

"In my childhood, when this guy attacked me, I thought everyone would know. When the tape was stolen, it felt like that."



In the Netflix documentary, Anderson and Lee's children, Branson and Dylan, who are in their mid-twenties, criticized Hulu and the production team.

"We hear about a TV show that came out about my parents and the tape that was stolen," Brandon said, "Why bring up something from 20 years ago that you know upset someone?"

"Did not happen".

The Netflix documentary accompanies a memoir that Anderson will release at the end of the month, called "Love, Pamela."

In the book, the actress describes a disturbing incident in which the comedian Tim Allen exposed himself to her on the set of the series "Renovate Your Home" in 1991, according to "Variety", which quotes from the book.

"On the first day of filming, I came out of my dressing room, and Tim was in the hallway in his dressing gown," Anderson writes.

"He opened his robe and quickly revealed himself to me - completely naked underneath. He said it was only fair, because he saw me naked. Now we are equal. I laughed uncomfortably."



Anderson was 23 at the time and Allen was 37. It was one of her first acting roles, and she played the utility girl in a show-within-a-series sitcom that followed the life of a home improvement show host.

Two years later she left in favor of the iconic role in the "Gulf Guard".

"Variety" contacted Allen for a comment on Anderson's claims, and he said: "It never happened.
