Pamela Anderson thinks Harvey Weinstein’s alleged victims should have been more careful.


The former “Baywatch” actress laid blame on the more than 100 women who have accused Weinstein of sexual harassment and assault during an appearance on “Megyn Kelly Today” Thursday.


“It was common knowledge that certain producers or certain people in Hollywood or people to avoid, privately,” she said on the show.


“You know what you’re getting into if you’re going into a hotel room alone.”

When Kelly argued that the women have said they felt safe because the meetings were set up by their agents, Anderson responded that they should have been smart enough not to go alone and “that’s not a good excuse.”


“When I came to Hollywood, of course I had a lot of offers to do private auditions and things that made absolutely no sense,” she said. “Just common sense: don’t go into a hotel room alone. If someone enters a door in a bathrobe, leave. These things that are common sense.”

She also listed details frequently relayed by Weinstein’s alleged victims, including private auditions and answering hotel rooms in a bathrobe.


“I know that Hollywood is very seductive and these people want to be famous. Sometimes you think you’re going to be safe with an adult in the room,” she said. “I don’t know where this security comes from, but somehow I’ve dodged it all. I’ve been offered lots of things. A condo and a Porsche to be someone’s number one girl,” she said.

“I just naively said, ‘Well there must be a number two then, so I’m not interested.’ Money, homes, roles in movies. And I just didn’t want to do it that way. I had no desire. I’m a romantic and it didn’t appeal to me.”


At the same time, Anderson, telling the story of her own childhood sexual abuse, said women should never blame themselves.

Weinstein has been accused of sexual harassment and assault by more than 100 women.

Anderson has frequently been linked romantically to Julian Assange, who was accused of rape and sexual molestation in Sweden.


The investigation was dropped in May when Swedish authorities said the Ecuadorian embassy, where Assange had taken asylum, was making it impossibly to communicate with the Wikileaks founder.
