Remembering #FarrahFawcett! [video]

When Farrah Fawcett passed away on June 25, 2009, it wasn't long before the unexpected death of Michael Jackson took over the headlines for the rest of the day, and year, for that matter.

Seven years later, it's worth remembering Fawcett, who died of cancer at 62, as the pinup who won us over with a legendary poster in the '70s, and as an actress who stood out among "Charlie's Angels." After just one season on that ABC series, Fawcett was a star. She went on to achieve critical success elsewhere on television, including an Emmy nod for the 1984 movie "The Burning Bed."

With her trademark megawatt smile and enviable head of feathered and flippable hair, Farrah's beauty helped her achieve celebrity icon status in a time before sex tapes and selfies.

We often FORGET the day Farrah left this Earth due to the unexpected death of Michael Jackson just hours after her. But we should remember that Fawcett was a four-time Emmy Award nominee and six-time Golden Globe Award nominee, Fawcett rose to international fame when she posed for her iconic red swimsuit poster – which became the best selling pin-up poster in history – and starred as private investigator Jill Munroe in the first season of the television series Charlie's Angels (1976–77). In 1996, she was ranked No. 26 on TV Guide's "50 Greatest TV stars of All-Time".

R.I.P. Farrah Fawcett!!!!
