Earlier this year, Tommy Lee gave his seal of approval for the upcoming series, saying he’s “stoked”.
“I know Sebastian, he’s playing me. From what he’s told me, really beautiful story,” Lee said when asked for his thoughts on the show by Entertainment Tonight.
“I think a lot of people would think it’s one thing, but it’s really about privacy and how things got crazy then. There’s different laws now.”
Discussing his thoughts on the adaptation of this period of his life, Tommy Lee went on: “The story’s actually cool. What actually happened wasn’t, but [Stan] tells me it’s pretty wild. I feel like it was forever ago. But it’s a cool story and people need to know. It’s cool. I’m stoked.”
One who’s not as keen on the idea is Courtney Love, who called the series “fucking outrageous” and warned that it could accentuate Anderson’s “complex trauma”.
Love added that she had recently been approached for permission to use one of her Rolling Stone covers in “this piece of shit”. “I said ‘fuck no’,” she said. “Shocked. Gentleman don’t approve this sort of thing.”
Earlier this summer, the show’s hair stylist Barry Lee Moe revealed that Lily James’ transformation into Pamela Anderson took three hours every day to complete.
Of James’ elaborate transformation into Pamela Anderson, Moe said her hair and makeup took “anywhere from three to five hours every morning before we even started filming.”
