Pamela Anderson Biography
Pamela Denise Anderson was born in Ladysmith, British Columbia, on July 1, 1967. Literally born into the spotlight, she was the first baby to be born on Canada's 100th birthday, earning her the title of "The Centennial Baby." Her landmark birth was chronicled in the local newspaper and her parents, Barry and Carol, were awarded with cash prizes for the birth of little Pamela.

In the summer of 1989, Pamela Anderson was spotted on the jumbo screen of a CFL game wearing a Labatt T-shirt, and the crowd went wild for her. Labatt immediately offered her a modeling contract. Thanks to the popularity of a Labatt beer campaign in Vancouver, Canada, Pamela Anderson was approached to do a cover for Playboy. Her appearance in Hugh Hefner's magazine was the launching pad of her career, and roles in television soon followed.
She had a small role on the comedy Married... With Children and played Lisa, the Tool Time Girl, on Home Improvement. Her role on Home Improvement led to her red bathing suit-clad role as lifeguard C.J. Parker on Baywatch.
In 1996, Pamela Anderson starred in her first feature film, Barb Wire, despite her manager's advice to refuse the film role. She should have taken his advice, since the film bombed at the box office.
