Pamela Anderson's 'nymphomaniac' past

LONDON: Pamela Anderson has revealed she was a wild teenager when she was growing up in Canada and loved boys.

Pamela Anderson was a "nymphomaniac" at school.

The former 'Baywatch' actress admits her sex drive was out of control when she was a teenager growing up in Canada.

Pamela - who was born in Ladysmith, British Columbia - joked: "I was a tomboy at school. I never wore make-up until I came to Los Angeles. I didn't understand girlie stuff - I excelled at sports instead. I was a nymphomaniac though!"

Pamela - who has previously been married to Tommy Lee, Kid Rock and Rick Salomon - still has a high sex drive and loves donning the famous red swimsuit she wore in 'Baywatch' to thrill her current boyfriend, surfer-and-electrician Jamie Padgett.

The 42-year-old star revealed to Britain's Elle magazine: "I have the 'Baywatch' red swimming costume in my safe. I put it on once in a while, jump in the shower and rescue my boyfriend. I have had some moments in that suit!"

Despite her international sex symbol status, Pamela wasn't always so confident with her body.

When the blonde beauty first posed for the cover of adult magazine Playboy she was almost physically sick when the crew rearranged her breasts for the shot.

She explained: "I used to be shy, really modest. When I did my first Playboy cover, I was wearing a jacket that was open a little bit and some lady make-up artist came over, moved my boob and put a little oil on it. I almost threw up, I was so shocked. A girl touched my boob!

"But it was one of the best things I've done."
