While Lily James has been portraying Pamela Anderson admirably, viewers were taken aback when they noticed scars on her left arm, close to her shoulder.
Initially, they were assumed to be Lily’s marks, but after seeing Pamela Anderson with marks in the same location, many began to wonder why they were there. Let’s see what we can find out, shall we?
Pamela Anderson’s Arm Mark: What Does It Mean?
‘Pam and Tommy’ delves into Pamela Anderson’s relationship with Tommy Lee around the time of their leaked sex tape, which sent shockwaves through the entertainment business.
While the programme has gained critical accolades for its realism and accuracy in depicting events, Sebastian Stan and Lily James have received plaudits for their outstanding performances.
Furthermore, when it came to makeup and costumes, the production team left no stone unturned and paid attention to even the tiniest of details. As a result, many were taken aback when they noticed scars on Lily James’ left arm and wondered if the production staff had overlooked them.
Despite the fact that she has a reputation for flawless makeup, theories about the marks being purposeful began to circulate, and the internet was swamped with questions about the same.
Pamela Anderson, incidentally, is known to have identical scarring on her left arm near her shoulder.
The scars are frequently visible in photographs, and Anderson’s fans have long wondered if they would ever learn the cause behind them. Anderson did, however, address her markings during an appearance on ‘The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson‘ in 2008.
Anderson said she got the scars on her arms following a horrific occurrence when she was younger, and she showed them out on national television. Despite claiming to have virtually forgotten about them, the actress stated that she received the grades when she was nine years old.
Anderson was swimming in a lake in British Columbia at the time when she was attacked by a swarm of leeches.
Despite the fact that she was able to shake them off fast, the creatures left an imprint on her arm, which was later reproduced in ‘Pam and Tommy.’
Anderson never sought to hide or disguise her scars, despite the fact that the incident was highly traumatic and frightening for a nine-year-old child. Instead, she accepted it as a part of herself and proudly flaunted it.
“She didn’t often cover them up, and neither did we,” David Williams, the makeup department head of ‘Pam and Tommy,’ said of reproducing the arm marks. We incorporated them because a Pam aficionado will notice such a detail.”
