Pamela Anderson says she felt ‘run over’ after finding out about Pam & Tommy.
The Baywatch legend claims 'no one' contacted her about the miniseries.
Hulu's Pam & Tommy follows the 'true story' of the Pamela Anderson (Lily James) and Tommy Lee (Sebastian Stan) sex tape.
A disgruntled contractor (Seth Rogen) stole the tape from the couple's home in 1995 and uploaded it to the web for millions to see.
Watch below as Anderson recalls how she randomly saw the show on an advert one day:
Speaking on a recent episode of The Howard Stern Show on Wednesday (25 January), the 55-year-old actor wished that the studio 'would've called' her.
"I remember seeing this advert for Pam & Tommy and was like, 'What the hell is this?'" Anderson said.
"No one called me, I'm still alive, no one asked me, it's nothing to do with me.
"I felt kinda run over by that one.
"I don't think they portrayed Tommy or I very accurately.
"I haven't seen it but I've heard from people that it's a very shallow representation of us.
"I wish they would've called."
Anderson went on to say that she wouldn't have got involved with the project, even if the producers did get in touch.
"I don't think I would have wanted to be involved, especially with that subject matter," she added.
"Why? Why bring it all up again?"
The pair got married in 1995 after meeting a year before at an event on New Year's Eve.
While Anderson filed for divorce in 1996, that same year, she gave birth their first child Brandon Thomas Lee.
Deciding to give their marriage another try, a year later came the sex tape.
In 1998, Lee was arrested and Anderson filed for divorce again.
He was sent to jail due to a felony spousal abuse case.
In 2008, the pair reconciled and Anderson says she still keeps in touch with him.
"Just a text here and there, nothing too crazy. He's married and happy and she's good to him and I want to support that," she said.
"The sex tape took its toll on the relationship, it took its toll on my career and people are still capitalising off that."
Despite Anderson's claims that she was not told about Pam & Tommy, executive producer D.V. DeVincentis said they repeatedly tried to contact her about the miniseries but never heard back.
He said: "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."
