Pamela Anderson has been garnering quite a lot of attention in recent weeks after she accused Tim Allen of flashing his penis at her decades ago on the set of their sitcom “Home Improvement.” Despite sharing this and other alleged hardships in her memoir “Love, Pamela,” Anderson is now claiming that she does not “feel like a victim.”

Anderson Sounds Off

In a new interview, Anderson talked about the alleged misogyny that she faced in Hollywood in her early years in the industry.

“At the time, I was just trying to get through it. Every day was something new,” claimed Anderson, 55, according to Daily Mail. “I wasn’t born into this industry, I came from a very small town, my first plane ride was to America, and I didn’t know what to expect.”

“So, I just thought, this is how it is, and I’ve just got to get through it and be strong, and smile my way through a lot of the awkward times and a lot of the difficult times,” she continued. “Looking back as an adult, because I still felt like I was a kid back then, even as my childhood as an adult, has been a really interesting experience. But I’m glad things have changed.”

‘I Don’t Feel Like A Victim’

Despite the claims that she is making about her past, Anderson is still grateful for the experiences that she’s had in the entertainment world.

“I’m not complaining. I don’t feel like a victim,” she said. “I had such great opportunities. I just had to be strong and I had to be wise and keep myself safe, and that’s what I encourage in my book, too.

“I’m just letting people know that you can get through all these things and paint the picture of your own life, and happiness is a choice, and we can be brave and fall in love, again and again, and just always be in love with love,” she added. “There’s no reason to be bitter or sad, because then, sometimes, the perpetrators win.”

Anderson Accuses Allen 

This comes after Anderson used her memoir to accuse Allen of flashing his penis at her during her first day filming “Home Improvement” back in 1991. 

“On the first day of filming, I walked out of my dressing room, and Tim was in the hallway in his robe,” she wrote. 

“He opened his robe and flashed me quickly — completely naked underneath,” Anderson continued. “He said it was only fair because he had seen me naked. Now we’re even. I laughed uncomfortably.”

Anderson had posed nude for Playboy Magazine two years before in 1989, which appears to be what he would have been referring to. Allen, however, has vehemently denied Anderson’s allegations, saying that they “never happened” and that he “would never do such a thing.”

Allen ‘Disappointed’ In Anderson

“She was a great co-worker, I’ll tell you that,” Allen told The Mail of Anderson. “She’s a fun girl. Everybody loved her, but everybody at ABC is a little disappointed in her… memory, put it that way. All of us at Disney/ABC, really.”

“She’s a good girl,” he added, going on to say that he has a very good memory. 

In the end, only Anderson and Allen know the truth about this situation. While it’s good that Anderson does not feel like a victim, it’s sad that Allen is now being victimized by her claims without any way to prove his innocence, should he not have done what he’s being accused of.
