Playboy model Pamela Anderson went through a rough childhood before finding fame and becoming a nationwide sex symbol. She spoke out during a reception at Cannes Film Festival regarding experiences with sexual abuse.

The former "Baywatch" star was promoting The Pamela Anderson Foundation, which cares for animal rights, human rights, and the environment.

"I did not have an easy childhood. Despite loving parents, I was molested from age 6 to 10 by my female babysitter," Anderson stated.
