Pamela Anderson opened up about her controversial friendship with the Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.
Anderson tells the Hollywood Reporter that she thinks the WikiLeaks founder is ‘misunderstood’ and hated because of the ‘Clinton monopoly on the media’.
‘He’s been wrongly accused of so many things,’ she told the magazine in an interview published on Wednesday.
Assange, 46, has spent the past six years living at the Ecuadorean Embassy in London avoiding extradition to Sweden over rape charges – which have since been dropped – and the US over espionage, charges Anderson said are bogus.
Pamela Anderson said she thinks Julian Assange (right) is ‘misunderstood’ and doesn’t believe the espionage charges against him in the US. Their relationship has become a source of controversy for years
The former Baywatch actress, 50, said she recently tried to visit her friend in London but was denied. Last March, before she lost all communication with Assange, Anderson posed for a sultry picture with him at the embassy.
‘He’s cut off from everybody,’ she said, claiming the Ecuadorian government is no longer giving Assange intent access.
‘The air and light quality (at the embassy) is terrible because he can’t keep his windows open and he can’t get any sunlight. Even prisoners can go outside, but he can’t,’ she continued.
‘I’m always bringing him vegan food, but he eats very simply. I talked to him on the phone the day (the internet) was shut off. He sent me an urgent call. And now, nothing.’
Anderson said she thinks it’s a way to keep the commuter programmer, who gained international attention when he published leaked government documents by Chelsea Manning, ‘down’ and ‘ineffective’.
‘He’s just ruffling the feathers of people that are powerful. I always try to humanize him because people think’s he’s a robot or he’s a computer screen or he’s not this human being,’ she said.
‘He’s so misunderstood, especially in Hollywood, and really hated, because of the Clinton monopoly on the media.’
Anderson said thinks Assange is in danger. The WikiLeaks founder has been living at the Ecuadorean Embassy in London avoiding extradition to Sweden and the US
Nothing special: Anderson said she was hired to attend Trump’s birthday party before he became president and there was ‘nothing special’ about him
Anderson’s relationship with Assange has long been shrouded in mystery. The actress and model told the Hollywood Reporter that they met ‘years ago’ through mutual friend designer Vivienne Westwood.
Anderson would not elaborate on how they struck up such a close friendship, but said they talk ‘about everything’.
‘We talk about the Bible, we talk about what’s happening with my kids, what’s happening with his family. It’s not just about politics,’ she said, adding: ‘Even though I do take a lot of notes and it’s so overwhelming, the information he gives me’.
Anderson, who now lives in the south of France with her 32-year-old boyfriend French soccer star Adil Rami, also praised WikiLeaks saying she thinks it’s the only trusted source of information.
‘There are people in the world that don’t question authority,’ she said. ‘They just think, ‘Oh, somebody smarter than me has figured it out, and I’m gonna go on with my day and I don’t have any feeling about it because I’m too busy.’ I think that’s dangerous,’ she explained.
Anderson’s relationship with Assange isn’t the only interesting topic the mother-of-two discussed. She revealed that she was allegedly paid to attend Trump’s birthday party – before he became president.
‘I was hired to be there. We all were paid like $500 a day. He was with a wife — I don’t know which one — but he was nothing special,’ she said.
