Pamela Anderson and Vivienne Westwood team up to save rainforestsJun 2, 6:11 pm
London, June 2 (ANI): Pamela Anderson has joined forces with British fashion designer Vivienne Westwood to save the rainforests.The Canadian-born star is said to have struck up a very unlikely friendship with 71-year-old Westwood and has gone to celebrate the anniversary of a rainforest charity.The 'Baywatch' star has just finished building up an eco home in Malibu, California, and wants to use her fame to talk about causes that she cares about.Now, like a modern-day Brigitte Bardot, Anderson is focusing on a role as a crusader for animal rights and the environment."On career day at school they get asked, What does your mummy and daddy do? and they say, My daddy's a rock star and my mum rescues animals." the Sun quoted Anderson as saying."I think people who are from LA dont always know what else is going on. Thats why I get involved in all these other things, because I know LA is not real,""I've had a lot of fun but there are big issues in the world and climate change is the biggest issue, so I feel great that I've joined forces to try to do something towards changing things," she said.The push behind her interest was the brilliantly eccentric designer Westwood. "I met her because we crossed paths in the entertainment industry. She reminds me a lot of my grandfather," Anderson said."He was very concerned about the earth, very intelligent. All my family is in Mensa you wouldnt believe that one, would you?""But they are on both sides. It just skipped me but my kids are really smart.I read Vivienns manifesto at a modelling shoot and I was really interested.""I don't have to draw you a map, you understand. We have the passion. You are using your celebrity in a good way. We just bonded and she has taken me under her wing and adopted me," she said about Westwood."So Vivienne and I have this wonderful reciprocal relationship and she is always sending me things and books and letters and I'm sending her things except her things are better than mine,"When Vivienne had turned 70 last year, Anderson bought her 70 acres of rainforest for her birthday from a charity that she supported."Vivienne had spoken about a group called Cool Earth that was buying the rainforest but were giving it to the communities so they were really sponsoring it. They were making the rainforest more valuable standing than it is wiped out and I wanted to get involved," she said."We have to start prioritising and a lot of it has to do with being less consuming and more protective of the earth."I understand that everyone is hurting but sometimes when you take a leap of faith and you do the right thing, everything else falls into place."Now I'm happy to use my fame to get causes across. I know how it works."So go on use me," she added. (ANI)
