Pamela Anderson married movie producer Jon Peters on Monday after a secret whirlwind romance.
The 52-year-old Baywatch star said ‘I do’ to 74-year-old Hollywood mogul – best known for the films Flashdance, Batman and A Star Is Born – in a private ceremony in Malibu, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The two have a history: they dated more than 30 years ago when he met her at the Playboy mansion. The site added the pair reunited romantically only a few months ago.
‘There are beautiful girls everywhere. I could have my pick, but – for 35 years – I’ve only wanted Pamela,’ the A Star Is Born producer told the site. ‘She makes me wild -in a good way.’
‘Pamela has never seen her full potential as an artist. She has yet to shine in a real way. There is much more to her than meets the eye, or I wouldn’t love her so much,’ Peters tells THR.
Pam also shared a poem with The Hollywood Reporter that explained her love for the former Hollywood heavyweight: ‘Jon is the original “bad boy” of Hollywood – no one compares – I love him deeply like family.’
She added, ‘His life used to scare me. So much for a girl like me. Now I’ve seen more of life and realize..
‘He’s been there all along. Never failed me – I’m ready now and he’s ready too –
‘We understand and respect each other – We love each other without conditions. – I’m a lucky woman. –Proof God has a plan.’
‘They are very much in love and were married yesterday,’ confirmed her publicist.
A source told PageSix, ‘They belong together. A great Hollywood romance.’
Anderson’s ex husbands include rock star Tommy Lee, with whom she was wed from 1995 until 1998. They have two adult sons: 23-year-old Brandon and 22-year-old Dylan.
The blonde bombshell was also married to Kid Rock from 2006 until 2007.
And she was wed twice to Rock Salomon; from 2007 until 2008 and then again from 2014 to 2015.
Rick appeared with Paris Hilton in her sex tape One Night In Paris.
Anderson’s most recent ex was French soccer star Adil Rami. And she has been close to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.
Peters was wed to Henrietta Zampitella from 1962 until 1966, then actress Lesley Ann Warren from 1967 until 1977; they have a son named Christopher.
Then he moved on to Barbra Streisand in the late 1970 and early 1980s.
He also was married to producer Christine Forsyth from 1987 until 1993.
Christine was at the Monday wedding along with their daughters Caleigh and Skye.
Peters’ daughter Kendyl also was on hand as were Anderson’s sons, Brandon and Dylan, on Monday, according to the site.
And from 2001 until 2004 he was married to film producer Mindy Peters.
Jon was also romantically linked to Catherine Zeta-Jones in 1996, it has been claimed.
Peters and Anderson first met in the mid-’80s at the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles.
‘I walked in and saw this little angel sitting at the bar. It was Pammy. She was like 19. I knew she would be a big star,’ he told THR at the time.
‘We ended up living together. Of course, Hefner loved her and saw her beauty. Pamela was a girl who with no makeup was gorgeous. She was very smart and very talented. I tried to talk her out of doing Playboy. I said, “Don’t do Playboy. Focus on a serious career.” She said, “You’re nuts.” She wanted to do Playboy, and she went on to do 13 covers.’
Peters ‘paid for her acting classes and dance and voice lessons, helping launch her onscreen career.’
She was first on the TV show Home Improvement then played the lifeguard C.J. Parker on Baywatch.
In the late 80s he proposed, but she said no. ‘In 30 years, our age difference won’t mean so much,’ he told her at the time.
Peters certainly has a reputation in Hollywood.
He started out as a hairdresser at his family’s Rodeo Drive salon in Beverly Hills.
The handsome half Italian, half Native American grew close to one of his customers, singer Streisand, and then he started dating her.
He got noticed in Hollywood when he worked on her smash hit movie A Star Is Born in 1976.
Then the films started rolling in. He worked as a producer on 1980’s Caddyshack, 1983’s Vision Quest, 1987’s Who’s That Girl, 1988’s Gorillas In The Mist, 1988’s Rain Man, 1989’s Batman, 1993’s This Boy’s Life, 1995’s Money Train, 1999’s Wild Wild West, and also 2018’s A Star Is Born remake with Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga.
He also is known for his partnership with Peter Guber. From 1989 until 1991 they ran Sony Pictures.
But in recent decades he has taken a back seat in Hollywood, collection royalties but not mixing with the new guard.
In 2017 he gave his first interview in 10 years where he said: ‘I never got credit for producing 100 movies, for running Sony, for coming from the street, becoming the chairman. It was always negative. ‘Hairdresser Jon.’ As I got older, I would meet people — normal people — and see the respect on their faces and think, “Oh, people do appreciate the pain and suffering.”‘
