Pamela Anderson was "crushed" when Michael Jackson failed to propose to her.

The former 'Baywatch' babe had a huge crush on the 'Thriller' singer – who died in June 2009 – when she was growing up and was convinced he would pop the question when they met.

She said: "I was star-struck by Michael Jackson. I dreamt of marrying him when I was little and when he met me he didn't ask me – I was crushed"

Pamela – who has two sons, Brandon, 15, and 12-year-old Dylan, with ex-husband Tommy Lee – no longer has a celebrity crush and likes men who are confident within themselves and their career, especially if they're in the showbiz world.

In an interview with Britain's OK! magazine: "I'm attracted to people who are confident. They are who they are and don't bed for the media. They have added an element of caring to their careers. A handful of solid spirits in this industry."

The blonde beauty is single at the moment but doesn't think her success puts men off from asking her out.

She added: "I'm an assertive female. I know what I want. There's no question."
