'Pamela, A Love Story' director defends Pamela Anderson

Ahead of the release of Pamela Anderson‘s memoir Love Pamela, Variety exclusively reported that the actor reveals some damning information about Tim Allen and Sylvester Stallone in her book. 

The actor claims that Allen flashed her on the set of 1991’s ‘Home Improvement’, to the point that he was “completely naked.” She reveals that he “said it was only fair, because he had seen me naked. Now we’re even. I laughed uncomfortably.” Allen has repeatedly denied the claims, stating, “No, it never happened. I would never do such a thing.”

Furthermore, Anderson’s book asserts that Stallone “offered me a condo and a Porsche to be his ‘No. 1 girl.’ And I was like, ‘Does that mean there’s a No. 2?’ Uh-uh.” The Rocky star’s attorney Marty Singer told Variety, “The story is a complete fabrication. It never happened. Sylvester Stallone never made any such statement.”

However, the director of Anderson’s new Netflix documentary, Pamela, A Love Story, Ryan White, has spoken out against Allen and Stallone’s statements. He told Variety: “Of course, I totally believe Pamela because I think she’s always honest in everything — about her own shortcomings, but also about other people’s. That was our conversation at the beginning of this. She was like, ‘I spent so much of my life protecting other people. And I’m not I’m trying not to do that as much anymore.'” 

He continued, “Pamela doesn’t see these as huge junctures in her life. They’re just moments that she tells you about as she’s rattling off a story.” According to White, “Pamela is just very matter of fact with her storytelling. It’s like, ‘This is what happened.’ And she’s not easy to categorize. She doesn’t live in a binary world where this is right and this is wrong, or this is good and this is bad.”

“Pamela lives in a grey area. And so when she tells stories like that, they don’t always come with sort of judgments that we would expect today, especially in like the post-#MeToo era. So everything’s very nuanced with the way she looks at things, and I think it makes her that much more believable.”
