Starring Lily James as Anderson and Sebastian Stan as drummer Mötley Crüe, the project proceeded without Anderson’s consent.
At the time, Anderson did not publicly comment on Hulu’s repeat of the story. Now, however, in a new interview with Diversity while talking about her upcoming Netflix documentary Pamela, Love StoryThe 55-year-old actor frankly explained the reason for refusing to watch Pam & Tommy.
“It was shocking,” she said of the show.
“Tommy probably thought it was funny. I remember Tommy writing me a letter saying, ‘Don’t let this hurt you like the first time’, because he heard the kids say I was struggling with the idea of bringing this up again.
“I don’t think he’s been portrayed properly. I just know that I refuse to watch it.
Anderson has described the series as a “salt in the water”, calling the people behind it “holes”.
