Pamela Anderson loved partying at the Playboy mansion because it was full of intellectuals

'You were talking to the best artists and musicians and actors and politicians'

Parties at the Playboy mansion have acquired an almost mythological status, with many unconfirmed tales of debauchery emerging from the notorious gatherings at Hugh Hefner’s home. 

Pamela Anderson was a regular at mansion parties in her Baywatch years, but she says her reasons for enjoying her time there were because of the calibre of people she met who influence her work and activism now. 

Anderson is a prominent animal rights and conservation activist and launched her own charity, the Pamela Anderson Foundation, last year.

She told The Daily Beast: “It was a bunch of cute girls and these really interesting men. I loved being at the Playboy Mansion. Intellectuals were at the Playboy Mansion. You were talking to the best artists and musicians and actors and politicians. We were these young girls, having these kinds of conversations that we’re having now.”
