CANNES, France - Photographers at the Cannes Film Festival booed
Pamela Anderson after she showed up late for a photo session Friday and only
stuck around to pose for a few minutes.
Anderson was in town to promote her new movie, "Blonde and Blonder." Earlier
in the day, she had complained to AP Television News about the paparazzi, saying
that Cannes was "a frenzy, it's crazy, it's silly."
"Even watching it on television this morning, seeing these people, it's like
the actors are prodded through like cattle, `turn this way, turn that way,'" she
said, adding that Cannes was nonetheless "quite glamorous."
The 39-year-old former "Baywatch" star had said previously that she would not
attend Cannes, where her movie is screening on the sidelines of the official
lineup, but later changed her mind.
"My kids come first even in my schedule," said Anderson, who has two young
sons with former husband Tommy Lee. "When I schedule anything that I do, it's
around their baseball games or their soccer matches or their ... everything."
In "Blonde and Blonder," Anderson co-stars with Denise Richards in what is
being promoted as "Dumb & Dumber" meets "Legally Blonde."
