Pin-up Pamela Anderson credits her dumb blonde image with helping her maintain a fifteen-year career in showbiz. The former BAYWATCH star has carefully cultivated her reputation as a pneumatic bimbo, because it means she can surprise people with her wit and humour. She says, "That's the best part of my charm. When you have nothing to live up to you can't disappoint anyone. "So, when you form a full sentence you're a genius. I understand what I've done in my career, where I've come from, and I can see how people would think of me in a certain way. "I love that blonde image because I have nothing to prove. "I think and hope that when people talk to me and get to know me better that they'll see that I'm an intelligent, creative person."
