Farrah Fawcett, one of the 20th century's most recognized-as-being-a-babe babes, died today at 62 after a battle with cancer.
Rising to prominence as Jill Munroe on Charlie's Angels, the actress's immense, iconic popularity would lead to millions of women emulating her hairstyle and countless teenage boys hanging her poster in their bedrooms--often in the prominent, coveted spot on the door below the miniature basketball hoop. Though Fawcett was later able to dispel some of her just-a-hot-babe image and earn critical favor for more dramatic roles, her notoriously strange appearance on a 1997 Late Show episode would sadly overshadow much of her accolades.
Her memory will live on in her work and in the countless Charlie's Angel-pose emulation photos taken by drunk high school girls.
