Fitness model Marissa Hoffman will serve as Lily James’ body double on the set of the upcoming series Pam and Tommy.
Lily, 32, stars as Pamela Anderson in the Hulu show which charts the tumultuous marriage of the Baywatch star to Motley Crue rocker Tommy Lee, with Marissa stepping in for the project’s steamy sex scenes, according to The Sun.
Marissa was recently snapped showcasing her lithe physique as she donned eye-catching red lingerie, showing her likeness to Lily.

Fixing the camera with a sultry stare, the body double styled her blonde locks into an updo while holding a red rose.
In another snap, Marissa is seen donning a bright orange crop top and a black mini skirt as she poses for the camera.
Pam and Tommy is based on the model’s three-year marriage to the rock star – which saw them tie the knot in 1995 and take part in a notorious sex tape.
Tommy will be portrayed by actor Sebastian Stan, 38, while Seth Rogen stars as the man who steals their sex tape and sells it to a porn company.

Pamela reportedly has no plans to watch the star-studded series.
Insiders told The Sun that the star deems the ‘God awful’ program ‘a joke’ and has never heard of Lily or Sebastian, who have already been praised for their transformation – although seemingly without Pamela’s seal of approval.
‘Pamela has no intention of watching this God awful show, absolutely not. Never…,’ a source told the publication.
‘She’s never heard of the actors playing her or Tommy, and doesn’t care to know them. She and her family think the show is a cheap knock-off.’
The insider then added: ‘The whole thing is a joke to them.’

Insiders previously told Deadline that Pamela and Tommy are not involved in the Hulu project, but have been aware that it is happening since Lily was brought in to play the media personality.
In May 2020, the blonde played down the clip on Andy Cohen’s show and cheekily told him: ‘That was not a sex tape. That was a compilation of vacations that we were naked on.’
Pamela also insisted she has a ‘great’ relationship with her rocker ex, stating: ‘We don’t talk at all. It’s perfect. No, we do… my kids are happy and that’s all that matters. They have a relationship now, and that’s the best part.’
The series was also criticised by Pamela’s friend Courtney Love, who said the tape’s release ‘destroy’ed the Baywatch star.

The Hole singer stood up for her friend in a lengthy post shared to her Facebook account, where she recounted the aftermath of the tape’s release and slammed Lily, as ‘whoever the f**k she is.’
In her impassioned message, Courtney, 56, wrote: ‘I find this so f**king outrageous . When Pam / tommy sex tape was out / myself @pattyschemel @xmadmx were making a record. And the lone women in many recording studios in la…
‘Where all / ALL! The staff engineers / producers / owners / were watching the sex tape with huge schadenfraude . . Guffaws , It was disgusting . I banned anyone discussing it. It destroyed my friend Pamelas life . Utterly.’
Courtney even shot down a request made by the mini-series, which is currently filming, over usage of a Rolling Stone cover she once appeared on.

Pamela and Tommy were married for three years and share sons Brandon, 24, and Dylan, 23.
Pamela has also been married to Kid Rock from 2006 to 2007 and Rick Salomon from 2007 to 2008 as well as Jon Peters for 12 days in 2020.
The actress then married her bodyguard Dan Hayhurst on Christmas Eve, 2020.
A source said: ‘[Pamela] has never heard of the actors playing her or Tommy, and doesn’t care to know them. She and her family think the show is a cheap knock-off.’
