Pamela Anderson

 

  1. Gillian Anderson, The X Files, TV, 1993-2002. The truth is now out there! Fox felt FBI agent Dana Scully should be the Baywatch babe…and February 1990 Playmate from the Home Improvement hit series, plus all her nude Playboy shoots. “Somebody who was more familiar in terms of what was on TV at the time,” recalled Gillian in 2008. “They were looking for someone bustier, taller, leggier than me. They couldn’t fathom how David and me could equal success... At the beginning, nobody trusted that I could do anything. I had no body of work behind me at all, and, certainly Fox felt very strongly that I wasn’t the right person for the job.” The producers finally realised that mixing Pammy and X would send out all the wrong signals. She stuck with  her jiggle-in-a-swimsuit show, Baywatch, 1992-1997.
  2. Erika Eliniak, Under Seige,  1992. As the Harvey Weinstein sex scandal took overe all headlines in 2018, the most famous Playboy pin-up since Marilyn  said the rule was simple. “When someone answers the door in a bathrobe, don't go in that room.” She, among many, had had a Steven Seagal moment. “I remember him saying to me: If you don’t do it, then that girl across the hall will do it - and she'll get the job'" And she said: “Well, good - goodbye.”
  3. Elizabeth Berkley, Showgirls, 1994.    Scenarist Joe Eszterhas interviewed 50-plus exotic dancers  and, aided by Hawaiian weed, came up with All About Eve in Vegas. Pamela Anderson, Angelina Jolie, Denise Richards, Charlize Theron and the inevitable unknown, Vanessa Marcil (too shy for nudity), they all  fled his sexy heroine, Nomi Malone.Jenny McCarthy was favourite, except she couldn’t dance. Producer Charles Evans then found Elizabeth Berkley, fromSaved by the Bell.  In one of its 2018 It Happened in Hollywoodpodcasts, Hollywood Reporter took unseemly delight in reporting she agreed to audition in his New York hotel room - even adding that “after being blown away by her performance,” he convinced Paul Verhoeven to give her a shot. Unable to land his dream mix of Madonna and Drew Barrymore as the 90s Bette Davis and Anne Baxter,the Dutch director decided to create his own star. He failed - andruined Berkley’s career. “If somebody has to be blamed, it should be me because I asked Elizabeth to be abrupt in that way because her character had a history of drug abuse, so I tried to express that through her abruptness."  So Richards won Verhoven’s next flop,Starship Troopers, 1997, and not Berkley. She never made another A-List film since Woody Allen’s The Curse of the Jade Scorpion in 2001, yet survived on TV: CSI: Miami, Law & Order, The L Word.
