“It’s his journey,” the Baywatch alum, 51, told Us Weekly exclusively on Friday, June 7, at the Maddox Gallery Los Angeles’ world premiere unveiling of a photograph of her by David Yarrow and a silent auction to benefit The Pamela Anderson Foundation. “He’s invincible. Brandon can do anything. People tell him, ‘You shouldn’t do this,’ but he’s such a talented actor. … He’s on his journey and he’s going to have a great time and I’m sure it’s going to be very, very entertaining because he is so funny.”

The model added: “He’s so wild and that’s what I love about him. … And he’s sober. He doesn’t drink and he has such a great time. For some people, [drinking] actually takes your personality away.”

They worry because I do get into situations that are really difficult.”
