© Provided by Cover Media David Hasselhoff attempted to sink Pamela Anderson's big acting break in Baywatch, because he thought her beauty and her bust would become the star of the show.

Both stars return for Dwanye 'The Rock' Johnson's upcoming Baywatch movie but original producers Michael Berk and Douglas Schwartz have revealed David was set against the then-model joining the cast of his show.

"David said, 'I don't want a girl that’s been in Playboy," Berk told The Hollywood Reporter. “He said, ‘Children watch this show!’”

"She had these enormous breasts and David thought he would be upstaged (with) everyone looking at her breasts, which is what happened," Schwartz added.

Anderson played C. J. Parker on the beloved TV series from 1992 to 1997, and her model son Brandon Lee recently confirmed his him returned to the beach for the new movie adaptation, which also stars Zac Efron, Alexandria Daddario, and Priyanka Chopra.

"Yeah, she’s in the new one. I don’t know if I should have said that," he quipped.

The 48-year-old actress previously admitted she wasn't sure if she wanted to be involved in the film reboot, but Johnson posted a picture of himself with Pamela on his Instagram page on 22 April (16), confirming her as a member of the cast.

"She introduced the world to ‘CJ Parker’ and became one of the most iconic characters of a generation - for the most successful TV show of all time," Dwayne, who is also producing the movie, wrote in the caption. "(It's) a pleasure to welcome (as gorgeous as ever) Pamela Anderson to our #BAYWATCH cast. We couldn’t have made this movie without you. Welcome home. Thrilled you had a blast with us!"

It is unclear as yet what role Pamela will play in the film, as model Kelly Rohrbach is taking on the part of C.J. for the reboot. In the snap with Dwayne, however, the actor is wearing his lifeguard ensemble as he plays Mitch Buchannon, the role made famous by Hasselhoff, in the film, while Pamela shows off her ample cleavage in a white suit jacket over a plunging black vest top.

Baywatch is set to hit cinemas next year (17).
