Pamela Anderson's opening up a pop-up restaurant on the French Riviera and she's issued an invitation to a very special guest. 

The actress and activist is a regular in the area, and she and chef Christophe Leroy have teamed up to open a vegan restaurant in Saint-Tropez called "La Table du Marche". 

In announcing the project on her website, the former Baywatch star also revealed she's extended an open invitation to Emmanuel Macron and his wife Brigitte Trogneux to come and discuss the plight of Julian Assange. 

Anderson, who is a supporter of the Wikileaks founder, explained she hopes to convince the French President to allow Assange asylum in the country. 

The founder of the whistleblowing website has been holed up in London's Ecuadorian embassy for five years after he took refuge from rape allegations in Sweden. 

The Swedish authorities have now dropped the charges against Assange, but the British police still want to arrest him over his breaking of bail conditions. 

Anderson, in her blog post, said "France could display its strength, and so could you [Macron], if you give Julian asylum."
