Farrah Fawcett, whose stunning looks and blinding smile made her a pop icon of the 1970s, has died of cancer. She was 62.

Her spokesman, Paul Bloch, said Fawcett died Thursday morning in a Santa Monica hospital. Her 2 1/2-year battle with cancer was depicted in the TV documentary "Farrah's Story."

She burst on the scene in 1976 as one-third of the crime-fighting trio in the hit ABC show "Charlie's Angeles." A poster of her in a clingy swimsuit sold in the millions.

Fawcett left the show after one season but had a flop on the big screen with "Somebody Killed Her Husband." She turned to more serious roles in the 1980s and 1990s, winning praise playing an abused wife in "The Burning Bed."
