Pamela Anderson on Her Pixie Cut: I Thought I Looked Like Anderson Cooper, Was Worried About Sex

Pamela Anderson‘s short haircut has not only transformed her appearance, but also her attitude and outlook on life. In a new interview, the star says her pixie has given her a total confidence boost. “At first I thought I looked like Anderson Cooper or like a Q-tip or something,” she shares in the April issue of Elle magazine. “But now I feel really powerful.”

Anderson’s new look has also had an impact on her love life. (She re-married her ex-husband Rick Salomon earlier this year.) “I have a friend who is an awesome, studly man, and he goes, ‘You know, some women cut their hair and it makes them look even more masculine, but you look even more feminine,'” she says. “I thought it would be weird having sex with short hair, but then I kind of got into the mode.”

The star also shares that she’s happily moved past the crazier times in her life. “The rock-star thing became very destructive, like, wow. I didn’t know what I was doing. I just kind of became that thing,” she says. “The hair, that rock-star kind of lifestyle, just living a dream. It kind of took over. It started out very innocent and then I turned into a cartoon character. And I started to feel like a cartoon character.”

And though she’s changed, she admits that her past still haunts her in some ways — like her teenage sons having access to her sex tape with ex-husband Tommy Lee. “I don’t know if they’ve seen it, but they know about it. They know about everything,” she says. “Stupid Internet. I don’t know why everyone is so impressed with it.”

If she was so worried about her short haircut why didn’t she get a short wig and try it out on friends and family before chopping off her hair? It’s not rocket science, but then again I’m considering the source. Pamela Anderson is not known for her great mind.

Don’t do things that will put you on the internet and then you won’t have to worry about your children seeing you have sex.

She looks beautiful here….

I would hope her sons haven’t seen it. If my mom or dad had a sex tape, I gouge out my own eyes rather than watch it.

Merci on

She looks 100% better, sounds like she is finally growing up…finally!

ace11 on

She has been with so many men, why should this style be any different?

Tommie on

She really looks nice here.

RR on

Not known for her great mind? She has used her God given (and store bought) assets to achieve wealth, fame and acclaim. That takes smarts.

Tamarin on

I don’t enjoy picturing her having sex. Yuck.
