Pamela Anderson, star of V.I.P. and Barb Wire: "My doctor says, 'You have hepatitis C.' And I go, 'Okay, how do I get rid of it?' And he's like, 'You can't. This is what you're going to die from.' I was in the middle of shooting VIP; I didn't know what to do. This wash came over my body. And then the doctor says, 'Do you know how you got it?' I said no. And he said, 'Your husband never told you he had it?' It kind of threw me for a while. Obviously, it's a hard thing to tell someone, but I wish he could have had the nerve to tell me. Obviously, his ego was more important than my life." Pamela Anderson quote.
