Anderson, who had a cameo appearance along with former Baywatch co-star David Hasselhoff in the 2017 movie, made the revelation on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen.

"I didn't like it," she said when asked about the big screen adaptation, fronted by Dwayne Johnson.

"Let's just keep the bad TV as bad TV. That's what's charming about Baywatch, you know? Trying to make these movies out of television is just messing with it," she added.

The 52-year-old actor-model also said the filmmakers went overboard with the budget.

"USD 65 million would make a good movie. We made our show for like USD 500,000 you have the same explosions, the same sequences of water. That's the fun part; being creative," she said.

Baywatch, the film, also featured Zac Efron, Alexandra Daddario, Priyanka Chopra and Kelly Rohrbach, who played Anderson's character.

The movie was a box office hit, but received unfavourable reviews from the critics
