The Scar on Lily James’ Arm in the Hulu Series Is Based on a ‘Traumatic’ Experience From Pamela Anderson’s Childhood

Some Pam and Tommy fans were confused about the scar on Pamela Anderson’s (Lily James) arm in the Hulu series. As it turns out, those weren’t James’ scars — they were an intentional choice made by the special effects makeup team working on Pam and Tommy. They’re based on scarring the real-life Anderson has on her arms from childhood; find out how she got them.

‘Pam and Tommy’ fans kickstart the conversation about Pamela Anderson’s scar

Since the Hulu series follows a celebrity couple, fans are quick to turn to Reddit to discuss what’s real and what’s fiction. “Watching Pam and Tommy and I can’t help but notice that Lily James is covered in bruises on her left arm,” a fan shared in the Reddit sub for the series. “Is this a random thing that wasn’t covered up with makeup or did Pamela Anderson have bruising there at that time or a series of birthmarks?”
