There’s more to “Baywatch” bombshell Pamela Anderson than her Playboy centerfolds. The Canadian actress is also an activist for respecting the legal immigration process, Fox News reported Monday.

“I’m an immigrant myself. It was a tough road to come to America and work. The American dream is seductive, but there is a legal way to do it and there would be more jobs here for people if it was honored,” Anderson said. “There is something about the process that has to be honored — and respected.”

Anderson added that no one should undermine manual labor, saying Americans should, “get back on the farm and teach our kids that entry level positions in the work force start with manual labor … We need to teach them that it is about hard work in all areas.”

In addition to advocating for legal immigration, Anderson is philanthropic: She auctioned herself off at the Super Bowl to raise money for the charity Waves For Water, which aims to provide clean water filtration systems to needy countries. Two people bid $8,500 on her for a total of $17,000. The bidders will be flown to California to have a private dinner with Anderson.
