If you don't always think you're pretty enough, you're not alone!
One of the most iconically seXXXy women of all time, Pamela Anderson, used to feel the same way.
Shocking, we know!
The former Baywatch beauty opened up about self-confidence in the latest issue of Parade magazine, and admitted that while she used to recognize her sex appeal, she never really felt pretty.
But now that she's older, the 47-year-old has learned to embrace her looks — she finally has a much-deserved modeling contract!

Pamela explained why it took her so long to get one, saying:
"I've just signed with Next Modeling agency for commercials and appearances. That is funny. I've never felt pretty enough to be a model. I think I've provoked feelings with how I look. But not as a beauty but as a mischievous little rascal! I've always been a tomboy. That was never the first thing on my list. My mom always told me beauty comes from within. And I know that's maybe a cliché, but I do believe that. And I think that's what lasts forever."
It may be cliché, but it's totally true!
And we're glad Pamela has accepted that.
Furthermore, Miz Anderson is one of the few women in Hollywood who isn't afraid to grow old!
She dished the following on aging:
"I don't really feel like I want to chase youth. I want to get old. I want to experience all the seasons of my life. I just don't want to be afraid of it. And I think in this industry you're surrounded by a lot of fear of getting older and fear of your looks leaving you. And I thought, 'Well, I'm lucky then, because I never really felt that great looking.' I felt like I had fun. I felt like I could be sexy. I could be provocative and I could use my image to get attention for things that I cared about."
"I want to get old" is definitely not a phrase you'll hear very often in Tinseltown.

Sounds like Pamela is at a very confident and secure place in her life right now, and we couldn't be happier for her!
