Pamela Anderson is the ultimate Broadway bombshell.
On Monday, the 54-year-old exited the Ambassador Theatre in New York City following her performance as Roxie Hart in "Chicago." Anderson happily greeted fans waiting for her outside of the theatre, where she is embarking on an eight-week run of the beloved musical.
The "Baywatch" actress oozed glamour in a sheer sleeveless draped red dress with a thigh-high slit. The star swept her blonde locks into an updo and paired the look with a bold red lip, oversized sunglasses and cheetah-print heels.
Although she was nervous to take on the starring "Chicago" role on Broadway, Anderson said the timing was right for her to take on the challenge.
"I needed something like this in my life at this moment. I really wanted to sink my teeth into something and I just really needed it," Anderson told Entertainment Tonight. "It's a crazy experience, just throwing yourself into something with the singing, the dancing, and the acting, the theatre people around you. There is so much talent. It's a little intimidating, but I like doing scary things."
The chance to be part of a Broadway production was first presented to Anderson more than a decade ago, but at the time her sons were teenagers — and she didn't want to be away from them.
Now that her and ex-husband Tommy Lee's kids, Dylan and Brandon, are 24 and 25 respectively, the opportunity to star in "Chicago" was one she couldn't pass up.
Anderson recently shared her self-care regime with E! Online and revealed how she approaches fitness and beauty at this stage of her life.
"I get regular massage, body work. I love Pilates. I’m working out pretty hard on Broadway right now," Anderson said. "My walks in the park and some stretching is enough for me to keep up my stamina."
Although she's well known for her Hollywood good looks, Anderson's approach to beauty might not be what you'd expect.
"I believe all beauty comes from within. Happiness is the best beauty trick," she said. "Being brave is sexy. Feeling the fear and doing it anyway. Fighting for freedom starts with one’s own freedom. It is a condition when fighting for others freedom. It is a political statement to be happy, to be alive. Life is a privilege not to be taken lightly."
