Pamela Anderson has addressed reports that she is dating Julian Assange. The 49-year-old opened up about her unlikely relationship with the Wikileaks founder in a new interview this week, but remained coy as to whether they are romantically involved. "Julian is trying to free the world by educating it. It is a romantic struggle – I love him for this," Pamela told People. "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."

Australia-born Julian, 45, has been living in exile at the Ecuadorian embassy in London since 2012. Pamela, who has visited him on a number of occasions, admitted that their relationship is "challenging". She revealed: "We talk about the world. He's a very good teacher. Julian is one of my favourite people. He is a refugee. He might be the most famous refugee of our time – famous for being persecuted."

The Baywatch actress continued: "I am 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."

Pamela also told the publication that she feels Julian is misunderstood. "He's a good person who cares about the world," she said. "He is a kind and deeply empathetic person. He is funny, sensitive, romantic, surprisingly resourceful. He's a good man."
