London: Former ‘Baywatch’ star Pamela Anderson says she wants to move back to Canada because she feels living in Los Angeles is like playing a character.

Relocating to Los Angeles from her native British Columbia in the 80s when she first started modeling, the 44-year-old beauty said she settled in California thinking she could be herself, reported Femalefirst.

"In Los Angeles I feel like I`m playing a character. I`m going here and there and dealing with things that aren`t typical anywhere else.

"At home I feel completely relaxed. My hair`s in a ponytail. I have my dad`s flannel shirt on and I`m running around. It`s great. I am so happy that I`m from there. I think people who are from Los Angeles don`t always know what else is going on. That`s why I get involved in all these other things, because I know Los Angeles is not real," she said.

Anderson, who has two children, Brandon, 15, and Dylan, 14, from her marriage to rock drummer Tommy Lee, says because she has been a Playboy model people expect her not to be intelligent.

"All my family is in (high IQ society) Mensa - you wouldn`t believe that one, would you? But they are on both sides. It just skipped me but my kids are really smart."
