Pamela Anderson's assets made Nicole Eggert feel 'pressure' to get boob job
Pamela Anderson's assets reportedly made Nicole Eggert feel "pressure" to get breast enlargements, according to 'Baywatch' producers.
The 44-year-old actress - who starred alongside the 49-year-old in the American hit drama series in 1992 - reportedly felt a "little bit competitive" with her co-star, which is rumoured to be the reason she went under the knife.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, the longstanding popular show's creative mastermind, Michael Berk, said: "Nicole Eggert felt a little bit competitive with Pam.
"She had a beautiful athletic body but didn't have big boobs at all. Maybe she was feeling a little bit of pressure. There was a holiday weekend and for a couple of days she called in sick afterward. Then she showed up back on the set having gotten a boob job."
However, Nicole's decision to enhance her own assets wreaked havoc for the production team, because they had already shot scenes with the star's former ample breasts.
'Baywatch' screenwriter, Douglas Schwartz, explained: "I had already shot scenes with her with small breasts.
"She came in and was wearing a jacket. I said, 'Nicole, you can't wear that. We already shot part of that scene before and you don't have a jacket on, remember?' She wanted to wear that jacket and I couldn't figure out why. And then finally, when she took off the jacket, she had these giant double Ds. I didn't know what to do. I had to put things in front of her and hide her for the rest of the episode."
However, the mother of two - who has daughters Dilyn, 17, and four-year-old daughter Keegan - had a breast reduction last year, which was broadcasted on the television series 'Botched'.
Speaking previously about the operation, she said: "If I had to run in that bathing suit with these boobs, they would be, like, hitting me in the face."
