Pamela Anderson has fame, fortune, fabulous good looks — and now her U.S. citizenship.

Anderson, 36, who was born in British Columbia, underwent an interview and passed a 10-question citizenship test Wednesday. She was then sworn in at a private ceremony, her attorney Barbara Federman said.

“She did fabulous,” Federman said.

Anderson moved to California in 1989. Federman would not say why she sought U.S. citizenship. Immigration officials said the actress also retained her Canadian citizenship.

“I felt it was important to become a U.S. citizen in order to vote in the United States,” Anderson said Wednesday. “I have no intention of giving up my citizenship in Canada and am very proud to be a Canadian.”

Anderson is currently a columnist for Canadian Elle magazine. She starred on “Baywatch” and has since worked in various films and TV shows, including the animated television series “Stripperella.”

She has two sons with her former husband Tommy Lee, a member of the band Motley Crue.
