Pamela Anderson says going through the menopause made her feel ''dreamy''.

The 50-year-old actress became a global sex symbol during her time on the TV drama series 'Baywatch', and despite having a ''a really hard time'' with the symptoms, Pamela still felt attractive as she dealt it.

Recalling her experiences of the menopause, she explained: ''I knew something was changing. I definitely feel a change, I think I am peri-menopausal, or whatever it is called. I felt very emotional, very poetic, very dark and dreamy.''

Prior to her 50th birthday, Pamela was feeling increasingly lonely, and she was also dealing with some of the common symptoms of the menopause.

The actress - who has been married three times, to Tommy Lee, Kid Rock and Rick Salomon - told the Daily Mail newspaper: ''I would cook and make dinners and no one showed up. I was lonely and I felt, I am done here. I had empty nest syndrome, all sorts of syndromes. Hormones! Hot flushes! Moods! It was all happening.''

However, Pamela found love once again in 2017, after she met soccer star Adil Rami at the Monaco Grand Prix in May.

And the blonde beauty says that Adil, 32, calls her an ''alien'' because of her improbably youthful appearance.

She shared: ''He says, 'Come on, you must be 30 not 50. Show me your driver's licence, this is impossible, impossible! There are plenty of girls younger than you, how do you do this?' But I say to him, how old would you be if you didn't know how old you were?''

Pamela has recently relocated to France to spend more time with her boyfriend, but the Hollywood star insists she wasn't looking for love with Adil stepped into her life.

She said: ''I didn't expect to fall in love, which is always when it happens, right?''
