Life Story of Farrah Fawcett

Farrah Fawcett is a true Hollywood success story. A native of Texas, she was the daughter of Pauline Fawcett (Pauline Alice Evans), a homemaker, and James Fawcett, an oil field contractor. She was a natural athlete, something that her father encouraged, and she attended a high school with a strong arts program. She attended the University of Texas in Austin, graduating with a degree in Microbiology, but only wanted to be an actress.

Winning a campus beauty contest got her noticed by an agent, who encouraged her to pursue acting. After graduating, she moved to Los Angeles and her healthy, all-American blond beauty was immediately noticed. She quickly got roles in various television commercials for such products as Ultra-Brite toothpaste, and Wella Balsam shampoo, and also made appearances in some TV series. In 1968, she met another Southerner, actor Lee Majors, star of the popular TV series The Big Valley (1965), on a blind date set up by their publicists. He became very taken with her and also used his own standing to promote her career. In 1969, she made her film debut in Love Is a Funny Thing (1969).

She had unusually large nipples, which added to the popularity of her iconic poster. However, during her role on the television series Charlie's Angels (1976), the Broadcast Standards Department (censors) at ABC became very concerned about what they termed "nipple protrusion" in some of her wardrobe.

In a 1997 interview with Howard Stern, she said that her Myra Breckinridge (1970) co-star Raquel Welch was "mean-spirited". However, when Stern tried to get her to badmouth her Charlie's Angels co-stars by asking whether Kate Jackson was bitchy and whether Jaclyn Smith was dumb, she defended her friends by stating: "Kate's bitchy to some people but never bitchy to me. Jaclyn may not be intelligent to some people but she's intelligent to me.".

Robert Duvall and Farrah Fawcett in Apostel! (1997)

She and her "Charlie's Angels" (1976) costar Jaclyn Smith considered it a prestigious honor when "Time" magazine wanted to put them with their other costar Kate Jackson on their November 22, 1976 cover. But the producers wanted them to give up their lunch hour to do it, and Kate balked at it. She had frequently stopped the producers from overworking them and saw this as one more way for them to encroach on their personal time. She locked herself in with her trailer with Farrah and Jaclyn and told the producers that the door was stuck and won't open. The three friends had their lunch together for 45 minutes, when the producers struggled to open the door and begged them to pose for "Time" magazine, which they did in the last 15 minutes of their lunch hour. It became one of the favorite times that the three friends shared on the show.

One of the original Charlie's Angels. She left after only one season of Charlie's Angels (1976) which resulted in a lawsuit. She was replaced by Cheryl Ladd, who played her sister. However, the lawsuit resulted in a settlement, where she agreed to make guest appearances, which meant that she had to act with her replacement. Ladd said that Fawcett was very professional to her, in spite of the awkwardness.

Despite sometimes bizarre behavior, including an incident on Late Show with David Letterman (1993), that has led to claims she is a drug addict, she says that she never uses drugs. She claims she gets giggly when she is nervous. She went on Letterman unprepared, she said, and her nervousness affected her behavior.
