ACTRESS Farrah Fawcett, who has been battling cancer for almost three years, has been admitted to a Los Angeles hospital, it emerged last night.
The 62-year-old former star of Charlie’s Angels, was hospitalised on Thursday, according to People magazine.
Celebrity gossip website Radaronline, which broke the news, quoted sources as saying the actress was unconscious.
The hospital was not identified. Fawcett was diagnosed with anal cancer in September 2006. Four months later, she declared herself cancer-free, only to have the disease return in May 2007. Fawcett travelled to Germany for alternative treatment and documented her experiences, footage of which she shared with entertainment television shows in early-2008.
The Texas native rose to fame through an iconic pin-up poster for which she posed flirtatiously in a red bathing suit. In 1976, TV producer Aaron Spelling cast Fawcett for Charlie’s Angels, in which she played Jill Munroe, the tanned, glamorous undercover detective with tousled blonde hair.
