Pamela Anderson was told she'd "never work" in Hollywood again by Harvey Weinstein, after she refused to work with a dog.
The 50-year-old actress has claimed she was once verbally abused by the disgraced producer - who has been accused of sexually harassing over 80 women in a 30-year period - who she says called her a "f***ing b***h" after she refused to work with a real dog on a movie set.
Pamela - who denies ever being sexually harassed by Weinstein - said: "He told me I'd never work in this town again, because I refused to work with a dog. He wanted me to play Invisible Girl on Superhero Movie. But they wanted me to work with an actual dog. I said, 'I won't work with animals in a film.' And he said, 'We're just going to put the dog there. What's the problem?' And I said, 'No. Put an X on the floor. I am talking to an invisible dog. Why do we need an actual dog?'
"And he was so mean. He called me back and shouted, 'You're Pamela Anderson; you're lucky I'm even putting you in a f***ing film. You're never going to work in this f***ing industry again, you son of a f***ing bitch.'
"He's so intense. I've never been talked to that way by anybody. Not even by a boyfriend. He was really intimidating. And I did it. But I did it without the dog."
The 'Baywatch' star admits the level of "disrespect" she felt during her altercation with Weinstein, 65, has prompted her to make sure her sons, Brandon, 21, and Dylan, 19 - whom she has with her ex-husband Tommy Lee - always respect women.
She added to The Times magazine: "I say to my sons: 'If you disrespect any woman, you disrespect me'."
Since news of his alleged sexual misconduct was first reported, Weinstein has been fired from his position as co-chairman of The Weinstein Company, and his wife of 10 years, Georgina Chapman, has announced she is leaving him.
