There has been something special about Pamela Anderson since the day she was born. She came into the world at 4:08 am on July 1st, 1967 and since that was the 100th anniversary of Canada, Anderson was dubbed a Centennial Baby. "That's where it all started," says Anderson.

In 1988, Pamela moved to Vancouver where she worked as a fitness instructor. It was the summer of 1989 while attending a BC Lions football game that Anderson was spotted by a TV cameraman wearing a Labatt's t-shirt. In seconds, she found herself up on the big screen and recipient of massive applause from the spectators. It wasn't long before Anderson was playing a major role in the Labatt's advertising campaign that year. The campaign was so popular that other commercials and advertising assignments for Anderson soon followed. Due to the recognition from these commercials, she was soon approached to do her first cover for Playboy Magazine. 

With the success and recognition she garnered from Playboy, Anderson soon moved to Los Angeles where she spent two seasons on ABC's hit series Home Improvement as Lisa, the Tool Time Girl. It was there that she captured the attention and affection of viewing audiences around the world. Around that time, Anderson was cast as C.J. Parker on the internationally successful series Baywatch. Due to impossible scheduling requirements of working on two hit shows at once, she eventually left Home Improvement to focus on Baywatch.

Anderson also appeared on the big screen in a number of films, including The Taking of Beverly Hills, Raw Justice and the action comedy Barb Wire. In addition, Anderson was featured in the CBS movie-of-the-week, Come Die with Me: A Mickey Spillane's Mike Hammer Mystery.

After leaving Baywatch, Anderson starred in and produced the hit TV show V.I.P. which ran for four seasons until 2002. In 2003, she starred in Spike TV's Stripperella, a cartoon developed by Stan Lee. In 2005, Anderson starred in the first season the FOX comedy show Stacked.

As an activist for the animal rights movement, Anderson has led a number of campaigns condemning practices that involve animal cruelty, including the fur and fast food industry. In March 2005, Anderson became a spokesperson for MAC Cosmetics's MAC AIDS Fund, which helped people affected by AIDS and HIV.
