Very sad news today...
Farrah Fawcett, the blonde-maned actress whose best-selling poster and "Charlie's Angels" stardom made her one of the most famous faces in the world, died Thursday. She was 62.
Fawcett's beauty -- her gleaming smile was printed on millions of posters -- initially made her famous. But she later established herself as a serious actress. She starred as a battered wife in the 1984 TV movie "The Burning Bed." She appeared on stage as a woman who extracts vengeance from a would-be rapist in William Mastrosimone's play "Extremities".
It's been very difficult following her battle with cancer over the past few years. Watching someone go through such a challenging time is always sad. But, she leaves behind a legacy that few in Hollywood ever attain.
The smile, the hair, the Angels...she was the IT girl of the 70's and lived a very full life because of it. Struggles aside, she took what she was given and lived the best life that she could with it. Thats all that any of us can hope to do with our time here on this planet.
She will be missed.
