Pamela Anderson's son, Dylan Jagger Lee, admits in a new interview that he's never watched the TV series that made his mom a sex symbol and cultural icon. The 18-year-old told Nylon that Baywatch just wasn't something he was interested in seeing.
"I've never even seen one episode," he said. "One time we were in Europe somewhere, and they were still running the show. My mom was like, 'What? I didn't even know that they still did this.' And I was like, 'You know what? I've never watched it, and I'm going to keep it that way.'"
He went on to discuss what it was like growing up as part of a famed family – dad is rock star Tommy Lee – and spending several years at a Vancouver-based boarding school, Shawnigan Lake.
"A lot of my friends [from school] have really successful parents, and they think they can bank on that for the rest of their lives, which they can't. They're like, 'I don't have to go to school.' I ask them, 'What do you do?' and they're like, 'Uh…surf?' You've got to step your game up..
Earlier this year, the brown-haired teen launched his modeling career with an ad campaign for Saint Laurent, which included a video of him on the beach, surfing and playing his guitar. It's a move his parents applauded.
"My dad, since I really like music, he likes that. My mom's always been in the fashion-acting [world], and she thinks it's so funny that it’s starting to happen to me," he told the publication.
Dylan isn't Pamela's only son, as she also has 19-year-old Brandon Thomas Lee. During a 2015 visit to the Ellen DeGeneres Show, the 48-year-old discussed the latter and gushed about how proud she is of him.
"He's not bad looking, he's gorgeous," the Canadian-born talent said of her eldest.
Which isn't really a surprise – it seems good looks run in the family.
