Zoe Ghertner for Dazed

The blonde icon talks Playboy, Vivienne Westwood, and dating in Hollywood in Dazed's 25th anniversary issue.

Timeless sex symbol Pamela Anderson is on the cover of Dazedmagazine's 25th anniversary issue.

The blonde bombshell is one of five different covers with supermodel Kate Moss, singer FKA twigs, and rising faces Gigi Hadid, and Natalie Westling.

In her interview, Pam reflects on her decade-spanning career. Here, our favorite excerpts.

On her past as a Playmate

"I really miss the Playboy days, It was wild... It was my university: sex, art, philanthropy, and just being around really talented, wonderful people. On Sunday nights we would all watch movies and stay around for the jacuzzi. I even used to call Hef (Hugh Hefner, founder of Playboy) up in the middle of the night and ask him, 'What are you doing?' He would say, 'I'm eating a peanut butter sandwich. Come on over!'"

On her longtime friend and collaborator Vivienne Westwood:

"One time I couldn't go to Vivienne's store opening in LA because my kids were driving me crazy. So Vivienne came over, went into Dylan's room with her orange hair and said, 'I'm so proud of you. Never listen to authority. You made your mother completely insane. I want you to keep doing that to every adult you ever meet.' I was like, 'Noooooo! That's not what I wanted you to say.' Brandon said, 'Who is this woman you keep sending me on things with?' And I said, 'One day you'll figure it out.' Now he's like, 'Mom, Vivienne created punk rock.' I was like, 'I told you one day you'd figure it out! These are all very colourful, wonderful people that Mom knows and that are going to color your entire life.'"

On her dating life:

"Even if I never date again, I will never go on the internet to find somebody," she said. "'I'm like, 'What's going on? Isn't this supposed to be fun?' I'll do anything for it! I'll dance around naked. Let's play characters! Let's talk in different accents. Why is this so serious? It's hard for me to stay in a relationship that isn't like what I experienced at Playboy. It's like, 'Relax. Have a glass of champagne!'"

The Dazed 25th Anniversary issue will be available on UK newsstands on September 20th. Read Pamela Anderson's full interview on September 22nd at
