Pamela Anderson Gets Candid About Not Wearing Makeup at 56
After Pamela Anderson started an empowering revolution of not wearing makeup anymore, she is now reflecting on the impact of that moment. The former Baywatch star tells People in a new interview this week that she never meant the moment to go viral. As we previously reported, Anderson, 56, showed up to Paris Fashion Week makeup-free in September, and the internet and fellow celebrities went wild for her being bold enough to go natural at Fashion Week, of all times.
Jamie Lee Curtis took notice of the mom of two’s beauty statement at the time. She proclaimed in her Instagram caption: “THE NATURAL BEAUTY REVOLUTION HAS OFFICIALLY BEGUN!” She noted Anderson taking part in the middle of fashion week “with so many pressures and postures,” yet she showed up and “claimed her seat at the table with nothing on her face. I am so impressed and floored by this act of courage and rebellion.”
Anderson’s Current Lifetstyle
Now with “fresh eyes,” Anderson tells People that she’s already makeup-free at home, so why not for Paris Fashion Week?” However, she thought no one would notice that she wasn’t wearing makeup. Regardless, the actress is glad it became a positive message. These days, Anderson confidently states that she doesn’t care about getting older. “I call it ‘life-ing,’ not aging,” she tells the publication. “Chasing youth is futile. All we can do is embrace who we are at the moment we are in, and be okay with where our feet stand right now.”
Where Anderson plants her feet is by the water on Vancouver Island, BC, off Canada’s Pacific coast. She is currently renovating her grandmother’s legacy property with her parents. Anderson spends her days gardening, meditating, growing her own food, and being surrounded by nature and animals. She’s also working on shows about sustainable living. “I don’t have to be cool anymore,” she says about what she loves about this stage of life. “I can just be me. It’s very freeing to be comfortable in your own skin.”
