Pamela Anderson's Playboy career began when she appeared on the magazine's October 1989 cover. She made history in January 2011 when she graced the magazine's cover for the 13th time -- more than anyone else in the publication's history. In honor of Anderson's July 1, 1967, birthday, look back at her history with the men's magazine.

Petra Charlotte Verkaik (pronounced PAYT-rah ver-KIKE; born November 4, 1966, in Los Angeles) is a model. Born and raised in Los Angeles, she attended acting classes. She needed a head shot and did a trade with a photographer to get free headshots in exchange for modeling for him. The modeling photographs were clothed. The photographer sent her photographs to Playboy who called her to work with them. In an interview with the Las Vegas Sun, Verkaik expressed that she never wanted to do nude modeling and that she thought "all those girls were whores and sluts." Three months later, she was Playmate of the Month for December 1989 after first appearing in the Great Playmate Hunt Special Edition in February 1989.
