Biography for Farrah Fawcett

Farrah Fawcett, was a fresh faced woman from Corpus Christi, Texas. In the early 1960s, she was voted the "Beautiful Woman" by her high school colleagues. In the late 1960s, she had her first break in guest-starring roles in shows such as "I Dream of Jeannie" (1965), "The Flying Nun" (1967) and "The Partridge Family" (1970). Then, in 1968, she dated actor Lee Majors, and the couple were married on July 28, 1973. Shortly after, Majors starred in his series "The Six Million Dollar Man" (1974) and Farrah guest-starred in four episodes. As her career took off, she posed in her red bathing suit for a poster, and it sold a staggering 8,000,000 plus copies.

After the poster was released, producers Aaron Spelling and Leonard Goldberg starred her in the Crime/Drama Megahit show "Charlie's Angels" (1976). Farrah received a paycheck for $10,000 an episode, and when it started to take off, Majors wanted her home by 6:30 pm to have dinner on the table. Farrah felt dissatisfied about both her contract and her paycheck. Then, in 1977, after the first season wrapped, she abruptly left the series. Shortly there after, the departure resulted in a lawsuit with the producers of the series. Finally, she agreed to return to the series in guest spots for six episodes: three in the 1978-79 season, and the other three in the 1979-80 season. In late 1979, Fawcett and Majors had separated, and, since there was no reconciliation in sight, they were divorced in 1980. Farrah dated Ryan O'Neal from 1980-1997. Then, in 1998, Farrah was severely injured by James Orr, after she had spurned his proposal of marriage.

Trivia

Farrah's current boy friend, writer-director-producer James Orr, was arrested for battery after attacking her for supposedly refusing his marriage proposal. [28 January 1998]

Actress Kristen Amber Citron accused her of stealing $72,000 worth of clothing and nude pictures from the home of former boy friend James Orr. [May 1997]

One of the original Charlie's Angels. She broke her contract for the last year of "Charlie's Angels" (1976) which resulted in a lawsuit. She was replaced by Cheryl Ladd.

Listed, (as Farrah Fawcett-Majors), as one of twelve "Promising New Actors of 1976" in John Willis' Screen World, Vol. 28. [1976]

She had a rather strange opening night in "Butterflies Are Free" at the Burt Reynolds Dinner Theatre in Jupiter, Florida on July 25, 1980. An obese lady in the front row of tables began yelling insults at her and making bird calls during the performance. Later, this unidentified lady raised her dress and flashed the performers, causing co-star Dennis Christopher to take notice, although the character he was playing was a blind man. Nearby, a male patron began vomiting, and then yet another patron fainted. Incredibly, the reviews for Farrah's performance were positive.

Earned $750,000 for Silk Hope (1999) (TV).

Was offered the Goldie Hawn role in Foul Play (1978).

In the late 70s, Farrah Fawcett and her husband Lee Majors were producers with the Fawcett-Majors Productions.

Despite sometimes bizarre behavior, including an incident on "Late Show with David Letterman" (1993), that has led to claims that Farrah 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 and her nervousness affected her behavior.

Measurements: 33 1/2B-22-33 (as starlet and commercial model), 35C-24-35 (after implants), (Source: Celebrity Sleuth magazine)

Quotes

"La raison pour laquelle le mâle américain préfère une femme belle plutôt qu'intelligente, c'est parce qu'il voit mieux qu'il ne pense."

"Dieu a donné aux femmes l’intuition et la féminité. Une combinaison appropriée des deux brouille facilement l’esprit des hommes que j’ai rencontrés."
