Variety | For “Downton Abbey” alum Lily James, 2022 has been a year of glamour and drama. She took on the role of Pamela Anderson in Hulu’s “Pam & Tommy,” which looked sympathetically at Anderson’s attempt to be taken seriously. Tom Hiddleston’s work is similarly multifaceted in “Loki,” where he plays Marvel’s trickster god, who’s gone from “Avengers” villain to lead of his own Disney+ series; Hiddleston also stars in Apple TV+ historical drama “The Essex Serpent.”

TOM HIDDLESTON: I thought your work was extraordinary. Taking on a real person feels like an enormous responsibility.

LILY JAMES: It’s terrifying, isn’t it?

HIDDLESTON: You want to honor and respect and —

JAMES: I felt like if I came at it with heart, and a total desire to be honest, that was all I could do. I don’t know if I’d do it again anytime soon. I felt that desire to do her justice.

HIDDLESTON: Where do you begin with becoming Pamela Anderson? Continue Reading

Tears and Therapy With ‘Squid Game’ Star Jung Ho-yeon, Sandra Oh and THR’s Drama Actress Roundtable

Rosario Dawson, Lily James, Christina Ricci and Emmy Rossum also share career strategies and sanity techniques while bonding over transformations, battles and collective anxiety.

“She’s so beautiful even when she cries,” said Emmy Rossum. The Angelyne star was seated next to Squid Game breakout Jung Ho-yeon, whose face was lined with tears as she reflected on her meteoric and anxiety-ridden rise at The Hollywood Reporter‘s Drama Actress Emmy Roundtable in late April. The model turned actress said she’d been fairly certain her first performance had been something of a disaster, so much so that she apologized to its director upon screening what would later become the most watched series in the world. Over the course of an hour, Jung’s peers ­— Rossum, Pam & Tommy‘s Lily James, Yellowjackets‘ Christina Ricci, Killing Eve‘s Sandra Oh and DMZ and Dopesick‘s Rosario Dawson ­— gave her a crash course on navigating Hollywood and her own insecurities. It was, as she put it, a very good “therapy session.” Continue Reading

‘What Happened to Pam Was So Wrong’: Lily James on Filling an Icon’s Double Ds. The star of ‘Pam & Tommy’ explains the personal connection she felt to Pamela Anderson — and why she “lost perspective on who I was” while filming.

In the run-up to playing Pamela Anderson in the Hulu miniseries Pam & Tommy, the London-based actor Lily James had to submit an application to the State Department so she could enter the U.S. for filming. And the bureaucrat on whose desk that application landed took one look at it, squinted, and said . . . no. “I got denied,” James groans. “I wanted to live the lifestyle and get a tan and go to Malibu and try and absorb the American feel. Maybe they were thinking, ‘Well, you shouldn’t play Pamela Anderson — look at you.’ ”

Anderson, it’s true, is buxom, pillow-faced, and platinum. James is lean, angular, and brunette, though her naturally dark locks startle fans of her series of onscreen blondes: wildling Lady Rose MacClare in Downton Abbey, restless waitress Debora in Baby Driver, a younger Meryl Streep in Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, and her breakout starring role in Cinderella in 2015, which she unexpectedly won after auditioning for one of the wicked stepsisters.

But lucky for her, and us, the U.S. government changed its mind. So here James sits sipping a gin and tonic at the Polo Lounge in Beverly Hills, her pale-lavender nails clashing playfully against her black leather jacket, discussing the show that’s launched her career into the stratosphere.

Pam & Tommy tracks the tumultuous first two years of Anderson’s marriage to Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee, from their ecstasy-fueled four-day courtship in Cancún to her public humiliation as their personal sex tape was stolen and then sold online. James delivers a charismatic, funny, and poignant portrait, capturing Anderson just as she was hoping to retire her Baywatch swimsuit for motherhood and mainstream success. In one standout monologue, Anderson aspires to a career like Jane Fonda — “this badass, sex-bomb, anti-war, workout-video-selling actress chick” — which will never come to pass because of a toxic mix of slut-shaming, scandal-mongering, paparazzi madness, and public mockery.

Los Angeles Times | When she agreed to play Pamela Anderson, Lily James expected she’d eventually receive the “Baywatch” star’s blessing.

“Pam & Tommy” was, after all, about consent — an exploration of the disturbing privacy violation Anderson and her then-husband, Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee, suffered when their sex tape was stolen in 1995 and subsequently distributed online.

But as the start of production on the Hulu series approached last spring, inquiries to Anderson remained unanswered. Not only did the 54-year-old choose not to be involved with the miniseries but she apparently opposed its existence altogether. Tabloid reports, citing sources close to the actor, claimed she found the series “very painful,” calling it a “cheap knockoff” she’d never watch. A month into production, Courtney Love said on Facebook that the tape had “destroyed my friend Pamela’s life,” arguing the show was “further causing her complex trauma.”

“And shame on lily James,” Love added, “whoever the f— she is.”

Devastated: That’s who James now was. The 32-year-old had spent the better part of a year transforming into the former Playmate, only to be left wondering: By making a TV program about how Anderson was exploited, was James simply adding to the exploitation?

“I’m really sensitive to it,” she said, trying to rub out a stain from coffee she’d just spilled on her dress. “I just know that my intentions — our intentions — were good. I would never have come on board if I didn’t think it was a worthy story to look at in order to provoke a conversation about how we treat women.”

It’s a thorny topic — one she continues to grapple with. Five days after our interview, James sent an email saying how much the issues raised in the conversation had “been on my mind.” She said she’d only learned that Anderson wouldn’t be involved “quite late in the process,” and though she was “incredibly disappointed,” she’d channeled her feelings into a heightened sense of “responsibility to do absolutely everything I could to try and do her justice.” Continue Reading

The New York Times | ‘Pam & Tommy’: A Story of Sex, Crimes and Videotape. A new Hulu series starring Lily James and Sebastian Stan is a picaresque romp through the history of the stolen sex tape that changed pop culture.

Back when 1995 was young, Pamela Anderson and her new husband, Tommy Lee, the drummer for the flashy metal combo Mötley Crüe, were on top of the world. She was starring in the TV hit “Baywatch,” and while his band was past its 1980s prime, he could still live la vida rocka in their Malibu mansion.

You can’t blame them for wanting to preserve some of their happiest moments — including some very naked, very sexual ones — for posterity, with the help of a Hi8 camcorder. And then, much to the couple’s dismay, the footage got out. And got around.

Those events and their fallout are dramatized in the eight-part scripted series “Pam & Tommy,” a wild, picaresque romp through the nightclubs, palaces and porn dens of mid-90s Hollywood, which debuted Wednesday on Hulu. But the show has more on its mind than celebrity antics or period-perfect riffs on the outlandish trials and tribulations of its lead couple — although it has those, too.

The series uses the scandal — which begot fortunes, ruined lives and made the celebrity sex tape a defining artifact of the internet age — as a guide through a transitional period in American culture. It depicts a time when glam gave way to grunge and when cheap video and dial-up modems exponentially expanded the reach — and the invasiveness — of the business of sexual imagery.

“We’re still living in that today,” said D.V. DeVincentis (“The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story”), a writer, executive producer and co-showrunner of the series. “You could argue it all comes from, if not this moment, then this period, and it’s something you’ll never get back in the bottle.” Continue Reading
