Pamela Anderon has finally spoken about the Hulu miniseries that covered her sex tape leak.
Pam & Tommy dived into how the X-rated movie featuring the former Baywatch star and her ex-husband Tommy Lee was released to the public.
Lily James portrayed the blonde bombshell while Sebastian Stan portrayed the Mötley Crüe rockstar.
According to The Independent, the filmmakers behind the miniseries didn't get Anderson's approval for the story to be told on the small screen.
Now, nearly a year after the programme dropped on Hulu, the 55-year-old has opened up about the situation.
In an interview with Variety, she discovered the miniseries was in development while she was filming her own documentary about her life.
The news outlet wrote that this discovery 'incited a painful aftershock of trauma that played out onscreen in the new project'.
“Nobody knew the truth—even I don’t know 100 per cent of what happened, but I think what is most important is to share my human feelings and how much it hurt and how it undeniably defined me moving forward—in my career and my relationships," Anderson told Variety.
The people involved in Pam & Tommy explained earlier this year why they went ahead with their project despite not having permission from Pamela.
It wasn't for a lack of trying, the cast and crew tried to reach out to Anderson but never heard anything back.
Executive producer D.V. DeVincentis said (via Entertainment Weekly): "We particularly wanted to let Pamela Anderson know that this portrayal was very much a positive thing and that we cared a great deal about her and wanted her to know that the show loves her.
"We didn't get a response, but considering what she's been through and the time that we were reaching out, that was understandable."
The miniseries' director, Craig Gillespie, added: "I felt, for us, what we're trying to do is really change the narrative and your perspective of what happened.
" And this felt like such an opportunity to do that and to be able to look at the story through today's lens and the outrageousness and just the atrocities that happened.
"I felt that hopefully, it would change people's point of view on that. So everybody tried to focus on that."
Strangely enough, while they were cautious about getting Pamela's approval, the same feeling wasn't as heavy for Lee.
DeVincentis said: "Tommy is a public figure and I think we treat him well enough. And we've come to know that he's excited about the show."
