Pamela Anderson posed nude for French magazine Purple, and was photographed by photographer Sante D’Orazio.
The 46-year-old proves she still has an incredible body, even 25 years after her first Playboy cover.
According to sources, the website for Purple crashed as soon as the photographs went up.
Here are some tidbits from the interview, which Sante conducted.
In the magazine’s interview, conducted by Sante, Pamela opens up about her new hair style.
‘I like to be bold. It wasnÃ¢â¬â¢t planned. IÃ¢â¬â¢d worked with Deborah Anderson; they shot me in short, dark wigs. The make-up artist Autumn Moultrie told me I should shave my head Ã¢â¬â show my face more.
‘I told Paul Desmarre of Christophe Salon Beverly Hills to come to my house later and cut it. Three hours later and voila! I love the movie Breathless by Jean Luc-Godard with Jean Seberg.
‘Not to get too personal, but it really helped me get out of a Ã¢â¬ÅsituationÃ¢â¬Â that was not right, no matter how hard I wanted to believe otherwise.
‘My family and dearest friends didnÃ¢â¬â¢t bat an eye. IÃ¢â¬â¢m surprised weÃ¢â¬â¢re even talking about this and at all the attention itÃ¢â¬â¢s generated. IÃ¢â¬â¢m grateful, though; the response has been shockingly positive.’
When asked about her career she said, ‘ThereÃ¢â¬â¢s a bubbling up of interest I didnÃ¢â¬â¢t expect. So IÃ¢â¬â¢m going with the flow. Collaborating with people I admire is a dream come true. Working with Purple is really exciting.’

One project in particular excited her.
‘The man who surprised me the most Ã¢â¬â whoÃ¢â¬â¢s developing a project IÃ¢â¬â¢m unable to discuss yet Ã¢â¬â wanted me to work with him before I cut my hair. He said he sees the artist in me and wants me to work seriously with him, and to have faith that he will reveal something great in me.
‘This haircut convinced a lot more people [laughs]. It has struck a chord. It amazes me Ã¢â¬â even in love Ã¢â¬â how itÃ¢â¬â¢s changed everything and encouraged real soul connections, less superficiality.’
As far as the shoot, she said, ‘IÃ¢â¬â¢m a bit of an exhibitionist, and I like having the pictures taken. But seeing these was really something different, something we did. ItÃ¢â¬â¢s like a launching pad for what IÃ¢â¬â¢ll do now.
‘While looking at the pictures I was thinking to myself, is that really me? I mean you donÃ¢â¬â¢t take a bad picture Ã¢â¬â people always look their best in your pictures. It still was a shock to see how strong I look.’
