Farrah Fawcett Dies at 62

Posted: June 25th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Farrah Fawcett Dies at 62Submit Comment
Farrah Fawcett, the "Charlie's Angels" star whose feathered blond hair and dazzling smile made her one of the biggest sex symbols of the 1970s, died Thursday after battling cancer. She was 62. She died shortly before 9:30am in a Santa Monica hospital.

Ryan O'Neal, the longtime companion who had reunited with Fawcett as she fought anal cancer, was at her side, along with close friend Alana Stewart.

Fawcett burst on the scene in 1976 as one-third of the crime-fighting trio in TV's "Charlie's Angels." A poster of her in a clingy swimsuit sold in the millions. Her full, layered hairstyle became all the rage, with girls and women across America adopting the look.

She had been diagnosed with cancer in 2006. As she underwent treatment, she enlisted the help of O'Neal, who was the father of her now 24-year-old son, Redmond. This month, O'Neal said he asked Fawcett to marry him and she agreed. They would wed "as soon as she can say yes," he said.

Her struggle with painful treatments and dispiriting setbacks was recorded in the television documentary "Farrah's Story." Fawcett sought cures in Germany as well as the United States, battling the disease with iron determination even as her body weakened. NBC estimated the May 15, 2009, broadcast drew nearly 9 million viewers.

In the documentary, Fawcett was seen shaving off most of her trademark locks before chemotherapy could claim them. Toward the end, she's seen huddled in bed, barely responding to a visit from her son.

An NBC spokeswoman confirmed today that the network will air a follow-up to "Farrah's Story."

Awwww... WP. Put up her poster that sold 12 million copies. Farrah was a beauty and gave a lot of men fantasies. Too bad Ryan never got the time to marry her like he wanted to (lately). You were a true Hollywood sex symbol and classy lady! Now she's an Angel. RIP.

Farrah should have given paid sexy lessons to all these crack, boney, lesbo-wannabe, f*cked up, window-breaking, beaver-licking, head-shaving, re-hab, alkie, pill popping, dust snorting, pop 'star', overnight sensation, train wrecks, pieces of sh*t we have to see and hear about all the time in Hollyweird.

could have spent at least one line on her career post angels...her role in the burning bed was breakthrough...she worked damn hard to move away from the sex symbol image, and she was a damn fine actress...and she died way too young

PS: I wonder if Farrah's son ever checks into this site. I suspect not as he's in lock up being blown ashore my Bubba the Butt Pirate. But man... here's a kid given every opportunity, kind mother, loving Ryan O'Neal... and he turns out being the HUGE f*ckING DISAPPOINTMENT he is. Nice work Sonny. Couldn't even be at your Mom's bedside. Way to go.
