Legendary bombshell Pamela Anderson has a new name on her dream dinner list - Enda Kenny.

The former Baywatch star (49) said she wants to have a pint of Guinness with the Taoiseach in an open letter in which she requested his assistance in banning wild-animal circuses

The animal rights activist has worked with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) for a number of years and the organisation released the letter on her behalf, pleading with Ireland to follow in the footsteps of countries like Austria and Croatia which have banned the performances/

In Ireland, Arklow, Dublin City, Galway, Kildare City, Monaghan, and Waterford have banned the productions on a local level, but the Playboy covergirl wants to introduce a nationwide ban.

"Animals in circuses never benefit from 'the luck of the Irish'. Instead, they're denied everything that is natural and important to them," she wrote.

"I truly hope Ireland seizes this opportunity to implement a national ban and joins the ever-growing list of countries that have banished this archaic form of so-called entertainment."

And when she's back in Ireland, the mother-of-two said she would love to toast a pint of the black stuff with him in gratitude.

"I would love nothing more than to raise a glass of Guinness (I hear it's vegan now!) with you when that day arrives."
