Speaking to Elle, Pamela Anderson said she abandoned her signature look ever since her makeup artist Alexis Vogel died in 2019 after battling breast cancer.

She said: "She was the best. And since then, I just felt, without Alexis, it’s just better for me not to wear makeup.”

The 56-year-old Hollywood beauty said her new look has been 'freeing, and fun, and a little rebellious too'.

"I did notice that there were all these people doing big makeup looks, and it’s just like me to go against the grain and do the opposite what everyone’s doing," the 'Barb Wire' actor said.

She said: "I think we all start looking a little funny when we get older. And I’m kind of laughing at myself when I look at the mirror. I go, ‘Wow, this is really…what’s happening to me?’ It’s a journey.”

Apart from Baywatch, Anderson played Vallery Irons on the syndicated series V.I.P. (1998–2002) and starred as Skyler Dayton on the Fox sitcom Stacked (2005–2006).

Her film credits include Raw Justice (1994), Barb Wire (1996), Scary Movie 3 (2003), Borat (2006), Superhero Movie, Blonde and Blonder (both 2008), The Institute, Baywatch (both 2017), and City Hunter (2018).
