Pamela Anderson has expressed regret over her controversial 2017 #MeToo comments which saw her declare ‘you know what you’re getting into if you’re going into a hotel room alone.’

The Baywatch star, 55, was slammed for her comments on an interview with Megyn Kelly about on sexual harassment and sexual assault allegations against Harvey Weinstein.

She said: ‘I think that this Me Too movement is a bit too much for me. I’m sorry, I’ll probably get killed for saying that… but my mother taught me, don’t go to a hotel with a stranger.

‘It was common knowledge that certain producers or certain people in Hollywood are people to avoid, privately. You know what you’re getting into if you’re going into a hotel room alone.’

In a chat with Ronan Farrow for Interview Magazine released Wednesday, the star said of the 2017 interview: ‘It was horrible thing to say, but that’s how I was’.

Elaborating on her 2017 comments, she said: ‘I could even take it a step further. My mother would tell me – and I think this is the kind of feminism I grew up with—it takes two to tango. Believe me, I’ve been in many situations where it’s like, “Come in here little girl, sit on the bed.” 

‘But my mom would say, “If someone answers the door in a hotel robe and you’re going for an interview, don’t go in. But if you do go in, get the job.” That’s a horrible thing to say but that’s how I was. I skated on the edges of destruction.

‘I just had this sense of value and self-worth. But I think a lot of people don’t have that or they weren’t taught that. Thank god for the #MeToo movement because things have changed and people are much more careful and respectful.

Anderson was forced to clarify her comments after she was widely slammed following the 2017 interview, in which she also said: ‘Don’t go into a hotel room alone. If someone answers the door in a bathrobe, leave. 

‘This is things that are common sense, but I know Hollywood is very seductive and the people want to be famous. Sometimes you think you are going to be safe with an adult in a room. I don’t know where this security comes from, but somehow I dodged it all.’

She later said on Instagram: ‘Backlash is good. – I like this. My position is not ‘problematic’ because [it] doesn’t fall in line with the common herd or trend. I’m trying to tell women as a survivor of childhood abuse myself – It is important to be proactive as an adult who knows better – in defending themselves.’  

Earlier this month disgraced Hollywood movie producer Weinstein asked New York’s highest court to overturn his 2020 rape and sexual assault conviction, saying the Manhattan trial judge succumbed to inertia created by the #MeToo movement.

In a filing with the state Court of Appeals, lawyers for Weinstein accused trial judge James Burke of caving to ‘the pressure of an influential social movement determined to punish centuries of male misbehavior by setting an example in convicting one man, Harvey Weinstein.’

She said: 'It was common knowledge that certain producers or certain people in Hollywood are people to avoid, privately. You know what you’re getting into if you’re going into a hotel room alone'

The lawyers said a series of errors by the judge, including letting four women testify about alleged conduct for which Weinstein was not charged, undermined the presumption their client was innocent.

They want the Court of Appeals to reverse his convictions and 23-year prison sentence, dismiss the rape charge because it was brought too late and order a new trial on a single count of criminal sexual act.

‘A defendant cannot be tried based on his character — but must be tried based on the conduct for which he has been accused’ Weinstein’s lawyer Arthur Aidala said in a statement.

The office of Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg, whose predecessor Cyrus Vance brought the Manhattan case, is expected to respond to Weinstein’s brief.

Weinstein has denied having non-consensual sexual encounters with anyone.

He is also awaiting sentencing, including a possible 18-year prison term, in Los Angeles after a jury there convicted him last month of raping and sexually assaulting a former model and actress in a hotel.

Jurors in Manhattan convicted Weinstein in February 2020 of sexually assaulting a former production assistant in 2006 and raping an aspiring actress in 2013.

That verdict was considered a milestone for #MeToo, where women have accused hundreds of men in entertainment, media, politics and other fields of sexual misconduct.
