Lily James transforms into Pamela Anderson’s Baywatch babe in busty red swimsuit

Lily James looked the spitting image of Pamela Anderson as she slipped into a busty red swimsuit in the Pam & Tommy trailer. 

The upcoming Hulu series focuses on Pamela’s relationship with Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee, played by Sebastian Stan. 

The new clip saw the pair grapple with the fallout of their stolen sex tape, yet it was Lily’s amazing Baywatch babe moment that stole the show.

The actress, 32, donned prosthetic breasts for filming in order to mimic Pamela’s famous bust, and put her ample cleavage on display in the low cut scarlet swimsuit.  

Pamela, now 54, had two breast implant surgeries in the early 1990s, increasing her breast size to a 34D, and then to a 34DD respectively. 

Throwing herself into the action, Lily emulated the iconic series about a group of lifeguards by filming a scene running down to the ocean in slow-motion.

The trailer begins with Lily attending a deposition where she is asked about her relationship with Tommy Lee.

‘Did you know anything at all about Mr. Lee before you met him?’ she is asked, to which she replies ‘I knew he was the drummer, from Motley Crue,’ she replies.

‘Did you find him attractive?’ she is then asked, as a swooning Lily replies, ‘I liked his smile.’

Viewers are then given a glimpse of the making of the sex tape as Sebastian, in character as Tommy, sets up their camcorder before joining Pamela in bed.

‘To everlasting love!’ he is heard saying as he kisses his wife.

But things take a turn for the worse after bad actors manage to obtain the tape.

‘It’s like we’re seeing something we’re not supposed to see,’ Rand’s associate, Uncle Miltie, played by Nick Offerman, says as they watch the tape.

As they discuss how they could distribute the tape, Rand suggests selling the tape online.

‘No one’s gonna get rich off a celebrity sex tape,’ a man tells the two.

‘What if we sold it somewhere nobody could find us,’ Rand suggests.

Pamela, 54, and Tommy, 59, tied the knot on a beach in Mexico in 1995 after dating for just four days. At the time, Pamela’s mother hadn’t even met Tommy.

The pair would go on to welcome sons Brandon, 25, and Dylan, 24, but they divorced in 1998.

In 2015, Pam told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live that she never profited from the sex tape, nor even watched it. She said: ‘I’ve never seen it. I made not one dollar. It was stolen property…

‘We made a deal to stop all the shenanigans. I was seven months pregnant with Dylan and thinking it was affecting the pregnancy with the stress and said, “I’m not going to court anymore. I’m not being deposed anymore by these horny, weird lawyer men. I don’t want to talk about my vagina anymore or my public sex — anything.”‘

The sex tape was stolen by Rogen’s character Rand Gauthier after Tommy reportedly refused to pay for work that he had performed on their house.

When Gauthier confronted the musician about not being paid the $20,000 he was owed, Tommy pulled out a gun to scare him away.

Gauthier took his revenge by stealing the giant safe that had been kept in the couple’s garage, which mainly housed the drummer’s guns and Pamela’s jewelry, in addition to the sex tape.

Earlier this year, Pam claimed that the video wasn’t actually a sex tape, but was merely a compilation of footage of them naked on vacation, which just happened to include sex acts.

Last year, insiders claimed to The Sun that the Pam thinks Pam & Tommy is ‘a joke and cheap knock-off.’

She reportedly called the show ‘God awful,’ though the series had just begun filming, and she apparently claimed she had never heard of Lily or Sebastian.

The source said Pamela had ‘no intention of watching this God awful show, absolutely not. Never.’

Pam & Tommy airs February 2 on Hulu
