Actress Pamela Anderson has said there is a gay man trapped inside her body.

At the Television Critics Association (TCA) summer press tour, Anderson, who'll appear on ABC's Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars, was asked her feelings about gay folks.

“I love gays!” the 45-year-old co-star of the 90s television drama Baywatch responded.

Expanding on her answer, Anderson later told Greg Hernandez of “I am a gay man trapped in this body.”

“I landed in LA on Gay Pride day and I wasn't shocked at all because it was completely what I pictured, she said of her 1989 arrival to Los Angeles from Canada. “Coming from a small town in Canada and arriving here, I finally felt like I belonged. Then I called my mom and told her how fantastic it was.”

“I have a lot of friends who are gay,” Anderson added. “I raise my children around a lot of different people all over the world and some of their best friends, their aunts and uncles, are gay.”
