    Sad. Had this poster on my wall for years as a kid. RIP Angel.

    An icon... shallow perhaps, but an icon nonetheless

    Nothing like the icons of your childhood dying off to make you start feeling old.

    Best wishes to her and her family!

    She wasn't shallow. She had some great roles later in her career, in films such as Extremities, and she was a pretty good sculptor as well.

    We will miss you, Ms Farrah.

    Farrah Fawcett dies at 62.

    Article

    A real shame for men of a certain age, thanks for the memories Farrah.

    hmmm, now why didn't this thread show up in search?

    what is anal cancer -- besides the obvious. I've never heard of that before.

    Wasn't saying SHE was shallow as a person, but to have her as in icon might be perceived as shallow, purely on a celebrity basis (i.e. the poster).

    I'd say she was definitely an icon. A generation of boys had her poster on their walls and a generation of girls feathered their hair like she did. She was arguably the biggest sex symbol of the 70s.

    Oh, I agree, and I have no problem saying she is an icon!
    Just that some might see it as shallow to do so
    I am not one of them

    Her poster was many a boy's introduction into manhood ;)

    and some girls' introduction into anorexia.:rolleyes: I'm not saying anything bad about her though. She was very talented and beautiful, and it's sad that she died so tragically.:(

    :(

    One of the 70's actress icons growing up for me. Farrah Fawcett from "Charlie's Angels" and Erin Gray from "Buck Rogers" ;)

    I will always remember watching the shows live as broadcasted in "analog" :eek: on our brand spanking new 19" Magnavox Color TV!

    Cancer of the GI tract can occur along any point from mouth to anus. While colon cancers are the most commonly discussed, there are varieties of esophageal, stomach, pancreatic, liver, small intestinal, rectal, and anal cancers that can afflict people, albeit rarely.

    Anatomically speaking, the anus is the terminal component of the rectum, the end of the large intestine. Due to the cellular populations of the anal canal being continually repopulated due to abrasive action, it is a possible (albeit not common) site for cancerous growth. Occasionally, it is treatable, but due to the location and the surrounding lymph drainage, metastasis is common.

    This is a most unfortunate thing to hear about. I keep hoping every time a celebrity dies of a specific condition that awareness and public interest will spur additional therapeutic research to improve outcomes.

    Her cancer metastasized to her liver.

    Sad really. She carried herself with such class towards the end when I'm sure a lot of celebs would've hidden behind a blanket rather than broadcast her ordeal. She was perhaps my first introduction to 'the female poster' :eek:

    Before that I'm sure it was all Sears catalog underwear section as a kid. :D

    RIP. Just hope she really went to other side in peace, she deserved it after all she'd been through since 06.

    Sad, but expected with her cancer situation.

    I understand she finally agreed to marry Ryan, but she died before they did their vows.

    Always a little Jealous of the 6 Million Dollar Man. :eek:

    And yes, I had that poster on my wall. Beautiful and classy lady.

    RIP Farrah.

    I feel sad that she had to pass away the same day as Jackson, because she deserves so much recognition.

    RIP Farrah. May your suffering be over, but may your memory live on forever.

    This is the way I feel, Farrah deserves the spot light one last time after her passing, Jacko once again over shadows even in death.

    35 some comments on this and 330 + comments on Jackson passing ... hrmmm I would have thought Farrah Fawcett dying would have generated more discussion. Goes to show the generation gap here. Well that and once more MJ takes the lead in press time.
