Pamela Anderson's entire career has been boiled down to a Halloween costume.
At least, that's the wry observation she made multiple times throughout a week where both her name and legacy are dominating the headlines.
This week, her memoir Love, Pamela has been released alongside her Netflix documentary Pamela, A Love Story, with both projects accompanied by multiple magazine profiles and in-depth interviews.

In both her new releases, the 55-year-old actress, model, author, and activist speaks about being seen as a caricature, someone whose existence has been boiled down to an ideal last-minute party costume. Just throw on a cheap blonde wig, stuff some balloons down the front of a shirt, and you're good to go.
And in truth, it's really only in the last year or so that the public tide of opinion around Pamela Anderson has really started to turn.
The star has devoted much of her life to animal rights activism and has taken a stance against pornography and the unrealistic portrayal of sex it promotes. Even co-authoring both a book and a viral Wall Street Journal opinion on the subject while also lecturing on the topic at Oxford University.
