Eva Mendes recently spoke highly of WWE Hall of Famer Kid Rock’s ex-wife Pamela Anderson. Sharing a stunning photo of the Baywatch alum to Instagram on Friday, the Hitch actress lauded Anderson’s recently released Netflix documentary Pamela, a love story, saying she “loved watching” it.
Mendes went on to recall meeting Anderson, 55, around 20 years ago, while guest-starring on an episode of Anderson’s action-dramedy V.I.P.
“She was so Incredibly sweet to me,” Mendes continued. “I was a nervous actor just starting out & she made sure I felt welcomed. An actor never forgets that. It means so much. 💗”
“I’m so happy she’s finally telling her story. 💗 Lotsa love to you beautiful,” she concluded.
At the premiere of her new Netflix documentary in Los Angeles last month, Anderson told PEOPLE that going back in time was an essential part of the process for telling her story for the film and for her Love, Pamela memoir, which both dropped Jan. 31.
“Of course it’s emotional for me,” the actress said. “It’s just all these wonderful memories and hard memories too. But I wanted to go back into those feelings and feel those feelings.”
She added, “That’s how I wrote my book. I wanted to go through all the chapters of my life and feel those feelings. It was hard. It was very hard.”
