Pamela Anderson defends unlikely friendship with Julian Assange and defends him as a ‘truth seeker’

Pamela Anderson defended her friendship with WikiLeaks creator Julian Assange, calling him a “truth seeker” and “brave.”

The 55-year-old actress met Assange in 2014 through fashion designer Vivienne Westwood, who recently passed away at the age of 81.

In her bombshell memoir “Love, Pamela,” released today, she admitted to having “naughty nights” with Assange while he holed up in the Ecuadorian embassy. She also regularly visited him at the London embassy where Assange had sought political asylum to avoid extradition to the US.

Assange faces 175 years in prison for espionage in the US after publishing thousands of classified documents involving the US military between 2010 and 2011.

When asked by Interview magazine when she thought of Assange as a reporter, she replied, “I believe he is a journalist. The same goes for the people I have a close relationship with – Srećko Horvat, (Slavoj) Žižek, Yanis Varoufakis, Noam Chomsky.’

“I felt like my connection to Julian was the human one,” she continued. “We were close and he even said I was the only person he ever trusted.

“I think it’s been proven that he didn’t endanger anyone. It was his job to publish what happened to him without any bias. His intention was to expose all that information so that everyone could make a choice instead of just watching CNN or Fox News.’

In her earlier book, Raw, she included a poem with Assange’s name in it — though the pair hadn’t met at the time. She said she added his name because he is a “radical thinker, a seeker of truth, and an authentic and courageous person.”

“So his name just came up,” she told the magazine.

The Baywatch star is now focusing her activism on press freedom, as she recalled that in her career she “got a lot of attention for very superficial things.”

“I was like, ‘What can I share to make this attention more meaningful?’ That’s where it started, my activist career,” she told the magazine. ‘I learned about animal testing, so I helped draft animal welfare laws where none existed before. Suddenly I was talking to world leaders. I talked to people that most people couldn’t access.

“I also had Hugh Hefner. He was a strong supporter of freedom of speech and freedom of the press and human rights. It just all blended together.”

In August 2014, Westwood introduced the couple when Pamela asked him for advice on her burgeoning animal charity.

Speaking to Mail On Sunday shortly after the encounter, the fashion designer explained the meeting of minds.

“I was supposed to take Pamela Anderson to see Julian at the embassy, ​​but she got the date wrong, so she went alone the day after me.

She told me afterwards that they got along really well.

“Julian was just brilliant…Pamela is trying to help people with her newfound confidence and he’s given her some ideas on how to do that.”

The pair became close friends, leading to speculation that they might be in a romantic relationship.

However, in 2018, she dispelled rumors that they were in a romantic relationship.

The bombshell also recalled that Assange’s mother had told her to stop posting “sexy photos” in order to be “taken more seriously as an activist.”

She also said she considers Assange a “journalist,” saying, “I think it’s been proven that he didn’t endanger anyone. It was his job to publish what happened to him without any bias.”

“And I thought, ‘What have we been fighting for?’ Why can’t we be sexy and smart?’ she told Interview Magazine. “Why can’t I be a nun and a showgirl?”

The mother-of-two also spoke candidly about her assessment for her sexy appearance in the carpool row at her children’s school, saying, “I really wanted to be a mother and I wanted to be there for them.” When I was taking the kids to school, I would catch my reflection and think, “Oh my God, I have glitter and mascara on my cheeks and people are judging me.” But I judge their cars with peanut butter sandwiches on the floor. We were all a mess.’

Now the Canadian has retreated to her native country, leaving makeup and glamor behind for a “little farm with my dogs.”

‘I don’t wear makeup. I just wake up and put on a slip and my rain boots and walk across the field and into the ocean. I feel like I just went back to the little girl who used to live here,” she said.

“Sometimes I say I’m sorry and sometimes I don’t. I’m just happy that my kids turned out great and like I said I’m not looking for respect or to be taken seriously. I just hope to inspire people who have gone through traumatic times to make lemonade from lemons. That’s a great expression.’
