Hulu's Pam & Tommy series may have aired without her consent, but Pamela Anderson knows revenge is a dish best served cold: the Canadian actor is taking back the reins by telling her own story in a new documentary for Netflix.

"I blocked that stolen tape out of my life in order to survive," Anderson says off the top of the trailer for Pamela, a love story. "And now that it's all coming up again, I feel sick."

Set to an ominous, shapeshifting version of "Lovefool" by the Cardigans, it previews the arc of the film's encapsulation of Anderson's career — from Baywatch to becoming a sex symbol, to her image being considered public property and her character being diminished to a punchline.

Unlike previous depictions of her life, which have tended to either glamorize or demean her, the Ryan White-directed documentary gives Anderson the humanizing power to speak for herself. "I want to take control of the narrative for the first time," she says in the clip.

Pamela, a love story hits the streamer on January 31. Watch the trailer below.
