Pamela Anderson is "tormented and love sick".
The former ‘Baywatch’ actress has refused to confirm whether she is dating exiled WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange after she was seen visiting him at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London –
where he has been holed up for five years after claiming diplomatic asylum in 2012 – on multiple occasions but she admitted she feels "lonely" and the situation makes her "stomach hurt".
She said: "I’m very concerned about his well-being and safety.
"I’m very moody. I wouldn’t say I’m a happy person. I’m tormented and love sick always. It’s hard to find relief sometimes.
"I’m trying to not feel lonely. But, I hurt a lot about so many things. I’m a romantic – it makes my stomach hurt."
The 49-year-old beauty admits she "loves" the controversial figure because of his mission to "free the world" and though she understands the fascination surrounding their relationship, she would rather keep things "private".
She told People magazine "Julian is trying to free the world by educating it. It is a romantic struggle — I love him for this.
"I understand that our ‘affair’ and the curiosity surrounding that might bring some attention to his situation. That’s fine, but I’d rather not go into private details. Let’s just say everyone deserves love."
And Pamela – who has two sons, Brandon, 20, and Dylan, 19, with her ex-husband Tommy Lee – admits her bond with Julian is "challenging" but she enjoys spending time with him because of the deep conversations they have together.
She added: "We talk about the world. He’s a very good teacher. Julian is one of my favorite people.
"He is a refugee. He might be the most famous refugee of our time – famous for being persecuted."
