A household name worldwide, Pamela Anderson was born on July 1, 1967 in British Columbia, Canada. Pamela became a star when she posed for Playboy in 1991, eventually becoming the Playmate of the Year. Her turbulent on and off relationship with metal rocker Tommy Lee made headlines over and over again. The biggest controversy in their relationship was perhaps the release of a sex video of Tommy and Pamela. She’s also an avid supporter of PETA, offering support and encouragement to battered women, building schools for underprivileged kids worldwide, and creating worldwide awareness of Hepatitis C.
