Former Baywatch star Pamela Anderson has spoken of her “love” for Julian Assange.
The ex-Playboy model, 49, is rumoured to be dating the WikiLeaks founder, 45, who has been living under political asylum for almost five years at London’s Ecuadorian Embassy.
Now Anderson has gushed about Assange on her blog, in a long message accompanied by a picture of the founder of the whistle-blowing website.
“My relationship with Julian – i t’s no secret. He is one of my favourite people and h e might be the most famous, most politicised refugee of our time,” she wrote.
” Famous for being persecuted is not a position of power but a position of vulnerability. I am concerned.
“Julian is a human being who is extremely empathetic and cares deeply about the world. And because of his work h e has made some powerful enemies in a few countries, America especially, by exposing them.”
She added: “Julian is trying to f ree the world by educating it. It is a romantic struggle. I love him for this.”
The rambling blog also touched on the subjects of “female empowerment”, women “faking orgasms more”, and Anderson’s concern that “people might forget how to make love”.
“Maybe this is how we deal with over-population? Less sex”, she wrote.
Anderson and Assange, who has claimed he will be extradited to the US for questioning over the activities of WikiLeaks if he leaves the building, met through fashion designer Dame Vivienne Westwood.
The actress has previously referred to Assange as her “dear friend”, saying she would not be surprised if people reduced their connection to “just a sexual relationship”.
Assange is wanted for questioning in Sweden over a sex allegation, which he denies.
