PAMELA & JULIAN’S BIZARRE RELATIONSHIP
WHY SHE SUPPORTS HIM
ACTRESS PAMELA ANDERSON IS urging Australia’s Prime Minister Scott Morrison to get behind Wikileaks founder Julian Assange and to “take him back to Australia”.
In an interview with 60 Minutes on Nov. 4, the animal-rights activist, 51, opened up about her friendship with Assange, whom she met two years ago. “I wanted to meet him because I wanted to ask him how to be a more effective activist,” Anderson said, adding they have a special relationship.
“We don’t have a romantic relationship like that, but I feel close to him. And I feel closer to him than a lot of people have and he trusts me.”
Assange, 47, has been granted asylum at the Ecuadorean Embassy in London, where he has stayed since 2012, after leaking classified military and diplomatic documents. •
“I was fascinated by him,” Anderson says of Assange.
