Pamela Anderson has confessed to taking cocaine.

The former "Baywatch" actress experimented with the Class A drug when she was younger but insists she didn't enjoy the effects the illegal substance had on her.

Anderson, 42, said in an interview with British talk show host Jeremy Kyle which aired Wednesday: "Well I've tried it and I don't like it. I'm completely hyper and it actually doesn't work for me. I've dabbled in things."

The blonde star - who has 2 sons, Brandon, 12, and 11-year-old Dylan, from her failed marriage to Motley Crue rocker Tommy Lee - admits she still drinks on occasions and can still "get crazy" when she wants to.

She explained: "I haven't had a drink in a month, I don't drink. Champagne - sometimes I'll drink it and I'll get a little crazy, doing backflips and, you know, wrestling people on the floor, but I'm taking a break right now, my friend calls it 'detox so you can retox.'"

Anderson is currently living in a trailer with her sons while her Malibu home is being renovated, and she admits the troubled development has turned into such a nightmare she is going to sell the property.

She said: "I'm going to sell it. I hate it. People commit suicide over constructions. Relationships break down over constructions and I can see why. It rips your heart out."

The actress-and-TV star has spent millions of dollars renovating the house, including having solid gold tiles put down around the pool and platinum tiles laid in other parts of the property, and is being sued by five building firms over unpaid bills.
