Pamela Anderson and Julian Assange on romance rumours
WIKILEAKS founder Julian Assange has refused to confirm whether or not he's dating Pamela Anderson.
Rumours are rife that the duo are more than just friends after the former Baywatch star visited Assange four times in the past three months at the Ecuadorean Embassy in London.
The controversial Aussie was grilled about the nature of his relationship with the actress during an interview with KIIS FM's Kyle and Jackie O this morning.
"What I really want to know, is what's going on with you and Pamela Anderson?" Sandilands asked, "Some sort of romance there?"
Assange replied: "Yeah, a lot of people want to know that which is helpful to draw attention to the situation, but, uh, Pamela Anderson's an impressive figure," he said while chuckling.
"She's an attractive person with an attractive personality and whipsmart," he said.
"She's psychologically very savvy ... and over the last two years, she has done more to try and get this Australian, me, out of detention without charge than the culmination of the Governments of Gillard, Rudd, Abbott and Turnbull combined. It should not take Pamela Anderson to do the Australian Government's job, as capable as she is."
Not quite satisfied with Assange's answer, Sandilands asked again: "Have you formed a love affair with her?"
"I like her, she's great," Assange said, before adding, "I'm not going to go into the private details."
As for Pamela Anderson, she too was coy about the nature of the relationship during an appearance on British TV yesterday.
"I think he's a very important person and I think that history will look back on him and realise how important he is," Anderson said about Assange on ITV's Loose Women.
