"I think this feminism can go too far", the actress and model told Australia's "60 Minutes" on Sunday.

Many celebrities have praised the movement, and the subsequent Time's Up movement, for shedding light on these issues, but former Baywatch Pamela has dismissed them, as she believes they've gone too far.

She added that modern feminism is having a negative effect on males and their relationship to females.

The 51-year-old star also took aim at third wave feminism and criticised the impact it can have on men. "I'm sorry, I'll probably get killed for saying that".

"But my mother taught me, don't go to a hotel with a stranger", she added. "Or, if you go in, get the job". "I'm Canadian, I'm going to speak my mind, okay?" "I'm sorry. I'm not politically correct".

The actress also referenced some of the allegations surrounding Weinstein, which involved him allegedly inviting women up to his hotel room for meetings.

Anderson had her own run-ins with Weinstein.

A ten year-old girl has been arrested on suspicion of deliberately killing a six month-old baby boy at a daycare center. Chippewa County Sheriff Jim Kowalczyk says the girl is in juvenile custody and is expected to appear in court today.

She later sought to clarify what she meant and said in a statement: "I would like to unreservedly apologise for any hurt and distress caused by a quote in a recent interview".

During the interview, Anderson also opens up about her relationship with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, now holed up in the Ecuadorian embassy in London under threat of extradition to the U.S.to face potential espionage charges.

Anderson has been known to be outspoken and has fought for human, animal and environmental rights.

"I'd rather be a sex symbol than a... not a sex symbol. That's a compliment, isn't it?" the actress said about her role in American pop culture. "Every girl wants to be sexy".

'You have these girls who come out, who don't even know who they are, who do it for the attention.

"However, I have since learned how statements like mine are seen as hurtful, which was never my intent".
