Pamela Anderson Wants Scott Morrison To Get Julian Assange Back To Aus

Pamela Anderson has put it to Scott Morrison and the Australian government that Julian Assange – who she has become close friends with over the past couple of years – should be released from the Ecuadorian embassy in London, and brought back to Australia.

Speaking with 60 Minutes, Anderson made a call out to the Aussie prime minister, demanding that he defend the Townsville-born WikiLeaks founder, who is currently seeking asylum in the embassy to avoid jail for breaching his bail conditions.

Defend your friend and get Julian his passport back and take him back to Australia and be proud of him and throw him a parade when he gets home.

Anderson has spent a lot of time at the Ecuadorian embassy where Assange has been posted up for the last six years, and claimed that she has gotten  “closer to him than a lot of people have gotten to him, but dismissed rumours that their relationship is anything more than friends with shared interests in activism – though she does say it’s a “romantic struggle, to educate the world” which is about as clear as mud and almost as vague as Gwyneth Paltrow‘s ‘conscious uncoupling’ from Chris Martin.

Anderson says that she thinks that her relationship with Assange and her high-profile presence (and the fact that she somehow manages to get papped EVERY time she goes to see Assange) humanises him a bit, which she believes is valuable to the cause of getting him out.

I think I am valuable in some way because I think people think he’s a computer screen, and I humanise him.

No word on what she thinks about Julian cleaning up after his cat, though.

Pamela Anderson’s interview explored her experiences as a woman in the entertainment industry – she’s still holding the title for most Playboy covers – and despite her previous defence of the magazine as “empowering”, she finds third-wave feminism “a bore”, that feminism can go too far, and the MeToo movement as being too much for her.

Make of that what you will, I guess.
