Here's a twosome you may not have been expecting.

Pamela Anderson, 49, has penned a passionate defense of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, 45, calling him both "the most intelligent, interesting, and informed man in existence" and "quite sexy" to boot.

The actress, who has said she met Assange through designer Vivienne Westwood, has been spotted visiting the WikiLeaks founder at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, where he has been holed up for four years, even bringing him a vegan lunch[1] in October.

"Yes- I think he's quite sexy," Anderson wrote in a March 9 blog post[2] on her website. "He has tremendous strength and stamina — though vulnerable. Hard to imagine him that way — as capable as he is. But, he is up against the biggest super powers in the world. I've spent enough time with him, to be absolutely sure of his intentions. They are good ones."

And on Feb 27, she wrote[3]: "I have had more stimulating conversation with this man than all my ex-husbands and lovers combined."

Assange sought political asylum in June 2012 after a European arrest warrant was issued against him by Swedish authorities. Two women accused him[4] of intentionally taking off or tampering with condoms, without consent, during sex.

Assange denies the rape allegation. He faces arrest by British police if he leaves the embassy before the statute of limitation runs out on the remaining charges in 2020[5].

Anderson calls the rape allegations levied against Assange "defamation," arguing, "There is no rape. It is a case of condom or not. It is ridiculous." She continues: "It is complex  — and there are powerful people trying to control the outcome."

Anderson closes her essay by saying: "I will always stand by My Julian ..."

In a February radio interview[6], Assange called Anderson "an attractive person with an attractive personality and whip smart" but declined to confirm a romantic relationship.

On Tuesday, WikiLeaks published[7] thousands of documents it says detail CIA tools for hacking into web servers, computers, smartphones and even TVs that can be turned into covert microphones.

The Trump administration refused[8] to confirm or deny the authenticity of the leaks.
