Lily James the Baywatch babe slips into Pamela Anderson’s iconic red swimsuit (and wears fake bust)


Pamela Anderson became a household name as busty lifeguard CJ Parker on nineties series Baywatch.

And Lily James had quite the swimwear to fill on set of her upcoming series Pam And Tommy.  

The 32-year-old English actress looked every bit the blonde bombshell as she donned Anderson’s iconic skintight red one-piece swimsuit while filming a Baywatch scene in Malibu on Wednesday.

She'll be there: Emulating the iconic series about a group of lifeguards wouldn't be complete without filming a scene running down to the ocean in slow-motion as Lily could be seen doing it several times just to get it right

Lily was a dead ringer for Pamela, now 58, as she appeared to be wearing prosthetics designed to emulate Pamela’s famously busty appearance – said to have been the result of two breast implant surgeries in the early 1990s, increasing her breast size to a 34D, and then to a 34DD respectively. 

The Cinderella star was the spitting image of the former Playboy pin-up including her signature blonde hair.

No doubt that mimicking the show is quite the tall task as at its height, Baywatch was the most-watched TV show in the world, with an estimated weekly audience of 1.1billion viewers. 

The show which aired from 1989 to 2001 followed a team of lifeguards led by Lieutenant Mitch Buchannon (played by David Hasselhoff) as they save lives, deal with personal dramas, fight crime and participate in over the top adventures on a daily basis at a beach in Los Angeles.

Anderson portrayed one of the most beloved characters on the series, CJ Parker, through five seasons from 1992 to 1997 as she was best known for her blonde bombshell looks as well as bravery and determination.

Not seen on set was her co-star Sebastian Stan who is playing Pam’s ex-husband and Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee. 

The upcoming Hulu series is based on Pamela’s tumultuous three-year-marriage to rock star Tommy Lee (played by Sebastian Stan) – which saw them tie the knot in 1995 and take part in their notorious sex tape.

Pamela, 53, and Tommy, 58, – who had two kids together, sons Brandon, 24, and Dylan, 23 – were considered to be one of the wildest celebrity couples of their time.

‘Here’s a peek at Pam & Tommy, coming to @Hulu. Based on the true scandal that started it all, featuring Lily James, Sebastian Stan and @SethRogen … ready to rewind? #PamAndTommy, ‘ the tweet read.

However, Pamela has reportedly branded the show ‘a joke and cheap knock-off’ according to a source report earlier this week. 

Insiders told The Sun that the star deems the ‘God awful’ program ‘a joke’ and has never heard of Lily or Sebastian, who have already been praised for their transformation – although seemingly without Pamela’s seal of approval. 

‘Pamela has no intention of watching this God awful show, absolutely not. Never…,’ a source told the publication.

‘She’s never heard of the actors playing her or Tommy, and doesn’t care to know them. She and her family think the show is a cheap knock-off.’

The insider then added: ‘The whole thing is a joke to them.’

Lily and Sebastian showed off their incredible resemblances to the former couple last Friday as they appeared to mimic the famous 2005 photo of Pamela, 53, tugging on Tommy’s, 58, nipple ring with her teeth.

While a different snap saw Lily in an all-black leather outfit that highlighted her cleavage in a black leather vest as she transformed into the blonde bombshell.

The raunchy photos were shared on the Twitter page for the Pam And Tommy series on Friday.

In a black-and-white photo, Sebastian went shirtless with drawn on inkings, he also wore a pair of high-waisted jeans, chain belt and a padlock necklace.

Busty: Pamela is said to have had two breast implant surgeries in the early 1990s, increasing her breast size to a 34D, and then to a 34DD respectively (Pictured; 1995)

The actor sported a similar shaggy hairdo and soul patch to the Mötley Crüe drummer. 

Lily wore a racy plaid top and showed off a Barb Wire tattoo on her arm, while also wearing her blond wig styled up.

While some have marveled at the potentially wacky idea of re-telling the pair’s love life for a TV show, it is certainly being helmed by some top talent.

 The television show is being directed by Australian filmmaker Craig Gillespie, who directed the Oscar-winning movie I, Tonya starring Margot Robbie and Allison Janney. 

Gillespie also directed indie hit Lars and the Real Girl starring Ryan Gosling, and the new Disney blockbuster Cruella starring Emma Stone.
