1970s pinup queen, and not so dumb blond actress, Farrah Fawcett died five years ago this morning. Farrah, who was best known for her part on Charlie’s Angels, passed away due to cancer.

Since I like a good pinup queen, I love the story behind this famous print. She was one smart cookie -

To promote her instant celebrity in Charlie’s Angels, a Cleveland poster company arranged to shoot Fawcett in a bikini at her house in 1976. As Rubenstein explained, “She wasn’t comfortable so exposed, so she pulled this red one-piece from her closet. The company hated the pic, but Farrah had final approval (and retained photo rights). Smart girl: The poster sold over 12 million copies and is still for sale today.” [InStyle]

Still selling copies after 12 million have already been sold!  And she owned the rights up to the end.  Not so dumb, now was she?

2day the world lost a little piece of sunshine. My deepest condolences go out 2 Brittany’s family, her husband, & her amazing mother Sharon.

see you on the other side kid.

Brittany starred in Clueless, and along side Angelna Jolie in Girl Interrupted. And I even loved her in that silly film Ramen Girl.

And while others may be speculating on what took her, BBB will let her rest for at least one day.

How incredibly tragic.
