Pamela Anderson is leaking more information about her relationship with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.
The “Baywatch” star made it clear that she’s a major admirer of the Australian hacker despite not disclosing romantic details.
“Julian is trying to free the world by educating it. It is a romantic struggle — I love him for this,” Anderson told People. “I understand that our ‘affair’ and the curiosity surrounding that might bring some attention to his situation. That’s fine, but I’d rather not go into private details. Let’s just say everyone deserves love.”
Many have wondered about the state of Anderson and Assange’s relationship since she was first seen visiting him at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London this past October. Assange has stayed at the Ecuadorian Embassy since 2012 in an effort to avoid being arrested and turned over to Swedish authorities due to a rape allegation, which he has denied.
Anderson, 49, has written about her companionship with Assange, 45, multiple times since her trip to see him last fall was made public.
She described their relationship as “challenging” in her conversation with People and told the outlet that their conversations are typically of the intellectual nature.
“We talk about the world,” Anderson said. “He’s a very good teacher. Julian is one of my favorite people. He is a refugee. He might be the most famous refugee of our time — famous for being persecuted.”
Her latest account about the WikiLeaks founder comes several weeks after the actress gushed over his intelligence and called him “sexy” in an open letter she wrote to defend him.
“Julian Assange is the most intelligent, interesting, and informed man in existence,” she wrote. “Yes — I think he’s quite sexy. He has tremendous strength and stamina — though vulnerable. Hard to imagine him that way — as capable as he is.”
Assange founded WikiLeaks in 2006, and the outlet’s been responsible for leaking classified information in the years since.
Last year, President Trump said he “loves WikiLeaks” after the outlet published thousands of emails from Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
