Farrah Fawcett: February 2, 1947 - June 25, 2009

After several years of battling metastasized anal cancer, 1970s beauty and sex symbol Farrah Fawcett died this morning in Santa Monica, California at the age of 62.

Beginning her career with shampoo ads, the actress gained superstardom after her role in the 1976 TV series Charlie's Angels, as well as for her blond locks [which many a female emulated] and the now-legendary poster of her in a red bikini which sold over 12 million copies [Why is it not posted here? Haram, people.]. Now that's fantasy for you.

Her final days were chronicled in the emotional and painful-to-watch TV documentary, Farrah's Story. Involved are scenes of the ailing actress undergoing tests at hospitals, projectile vomiting and writhing in pain. Cancer's a disaster.

Rest in peace, Farrah.
