Former Baywatch and Barb Wire star Pamela Anderson has described herself as an "anti-feminist" in an interview.

Speaking to Stellar, the 49-year-old  actress said: "We are becoming more androgynous as a species.

"Men get weaker in an authoritarian environment; they don't need to be as manly. And women are working . . . who's watching the kids? I may get some heat for this, but I'd consider myself an anti-feminist.

"I obviously believe in treating people fairly, but men and women are different for a reason, with very important roles to play."

Anderson added that men should not drink from plastic bottles because plastic contains oestrogen.
