In a new interview with Charlie’s Angels star Jaclyn Smith, she recalls her favorite members with the late Farrah Fawcett. She also says that Fawcett’s cancer battle actually “brought out the best” of her. Both she and Alana Stewart recall memories with Fawcett of getting manicures, pedicures, and going down by the pool together well before Charlie’s Angels was even a thing.
“I liked her immediately,” Jaclyn says in the interview. “We were two Texas girls who loved our family, who sort of grew up the same way,” she says. “I think she was a true girlfriend and she rooted for you. And there was not a competitiveness.”
‘Charlie’s Angels’ stars reflect on their favorite Fawcett memories
The interviewer calls Fawcett “made of steel” during her cancer fight. He then asked Jaclyn if she was impressed with how her friend handled the cancer battle. Jaclyn replies, “”Impressed” is an understatement because the best of Farrah came out,” she continues, “She was strong, she was resilient, she was single-minded, she fought this disease in a relentless way.”
Jaclyn also says that Fawcett went above and beyond to make people aware of anal cancer and the HPV virus.
The Farrah Fawcett Foundation president calls late actress “a fun Texas high school girlfriend”
The Charlie’s Angels stars were walking the red carpet for an event by the Farrah Fawcett Foundation’s Tex Mex Fiesta. This year, while they were obviously honoring the late actress who passed away from anal cancer, they were honoring another actress as well. Marcia Cross, a Desperate Housewives actress, was diagnosed with anal cancer in 2017.
Alana Stewart is now the foundation’s president. Alana was asked about her favorite memories with Fawcett. They include going for manicures and pedicures, taking a dip in the pool, looking for the best Tex Mex food, and having a margarita. She calls Fawcett “a fun Texas high school girlfriend.”
Helping people was very important to Fawcett during cancer battle
Both Alana and Jaclyn say that Fawcett went public with her cancer battle in order to educate people about what these people go through. Most people would likely keep their cancer battle private, but she went all-out public. Alana says that it is so important to Farrah that she helps other people.
That’s why the creation of the foundation happens so they can try to find a cure for this disease together.
