Guess she’ll be sticking to home movies from now on. ”I don’t want to be an actress. I never did want to be an actress,” Pamela Anderson told E! News Live on Wednesday. ”And actually it’s been very fun and silly and the fact that I’ve done as much as I have is just fun. I have retired.”

Anderson made the announcement at a Las Vegas trade show where she’s promoting her new line of animal-cruelty-free clothing. She said she wants to devote more time to raising sons Brandon, 7, and Dylan, 6, and to selling her clothes. ”I always said that when [my sons] started going to school, like kindergarten and first grade, which they are right now, that I wouldn’t do a series or any more movies or anything like that,” she said. ”I really wanted to be home for them, and I wanted to be able to pick them up from schools and bring them to their things.”

The 36-year-old added that her retirement was not a secret to folks in the industry, though they continue to pursue her for projects. ”Since I’ve said I retired, I’ve had so many people come up to me about movies and things like that,” she said. ”I’m not interested in a TV show — that takes too much time.” It is news, however, to the producers of her Spike TV series ”Stripperella.” They tell the New York Post that they’re still planning on making more episodes of the animated series, in which she voices the lead role. Maybe they should let the character wear some of Anderson’s new cruelty-free T-shirts and Ugg boots.
