Pamela Anderson has joined the cast of the “Baywatch” movie, according to star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
“A pleasure to welcome (as gorgeous as ever) Pamela Anderson to our #Baywatch cast,” Johnson announced on Instagram. “We couldn’t have made this movie without you. Welcome home. Thrilled you had a blast with us!”
Anderson had previously turned down the movie role, saying she wasn’t happy with her part, but has since changed her mind after her part was rewritten.
Original cast member (and former Baywatch star) David Hasselhoff will also appear on the “Baywatch” movie, which comes out in theaters in May 2017. Hasselhoff and Pamela had starred on the Baywatch TV series from 1989 to 1999.
It’s unknown if Pamela will wear her trademark Baywatch swimsuit in the movie, but she’s certainly fit enough to.
Anderson recently showed off her hot bikini body in a racy ad campaign for the British fashion label Misguided. Pamela also posed nude for Paper magazine.
Looking at her lean, toned bikini body, it’s hard to believe Pamela is a 48-year-old mom of two.
The 5-foot-7 Pamela weighs a sleek 115 pounds, thanks to her plant-based diet, as Celebrity Health Fitness has reported.
Other celebrity vegans include Demi Moore, Gwen Stefani, and Beyonce, who credited a vegan diet for her 65 pound post-baby weight loss.
Beyonce’s longtime fitness trainer, Marcos Borges, agrees. The more greens you eat, the more weight you will lose, Borges wrote in his bestseller The 22 Day Revolution.
While Anderson isn’t an exercise fanatic like she was during her 20s, she works out regularly, and said a vegan diet has helped her manage hepatitis C since 2002.
“I have Hepatitis C and I feel great, which I think has a lot to do with my diet,” Pam said in 2010. “I feel better [following a vegan diet]. I always feel healthy.”
The anti-aging weight loss and health benefits of a vegan diet aren’t surprising to Dr. David Katz, director of Yale University’s Prevention Research Center.
A diet of minimally processed foods close to nature — predominantly plants — is decisively associated with health promotion and disease prevention, said Dr. Katz, author of Disease-Proof.
Physician and obesity expert Dr. Neal Barnard agrees. “A vegan diet, rich in fruits and vegetables, is full of antioxidants which help protect the body from damage by free radicals,” said Dr. Barnard, author of 21-Day Weight Loss Kickstart.
Pamela Anderson is currently writing a vegan diet cookbook.
