“Baywatch” star Pamela Anderson was widely regarded as one of the most beautiful women alive during her prime, and she still looks pretty great. Like many actresses, the star has had a string of marriages that include Kid Rock, Mötley Crüe musician Tommy Lee and twice to poker player Rick Salomon.

It seems that Ms. Anderson is becoming aware of the political sphere as sources say she’s now pursuing WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. Assange is currently holed up in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London where he has sought asylum to keep from being extradited to Sweden where he faces rape charges. Anderson was recently in London for an appearance on “The Nightly Show,” after which she went straight to the embassy to visit Assange. The hacker is back in the spotlight after his website released yet another trove of leaked CIA documents last Tuesday.

The Sun reported that Anderson described Assange as “one of the most important people in the world” and that she thinks “what he does is historic; it’s very important.” According to the publication, the former Playboy model said that she has “more stimulating conversation with this man than all my ex-husbands and lovers combined.” On Thursday, she penned a blog post in which she admitted, “I think he’s quite sexy.” She also called him the “most intelligent, interesting, and informed man in existence.”
