KUDOS FARRAH!!! 👍 . It came as an enormous shock to the cultural system when Farrah Fawcett, pin-up supreme of the 1970s, smashed her Barbie Doll image by playing the smashed-up wife of an abusive husband who eventually murders him by setting fire to their bedroom as he sleeps off another drunk. . Blondes are supposed to have more fun, right? . Farrah Fawcett didn’t see it that way, and her choice to take on this savage tale that would see her beauty hidden beneath bruises, blood, and K-Mart clothing was a bold statement about herself, her art, and perhaps even her view of domesticity . #farrahfawcettmajors #farrahfawcetthair #farrahfashion #thankgoditsfarrah #farrahfawcett #superstar #model #actress #film #blondegoddess #movie #hollywood #love #cinema #television #hollywoodlegend #fashion #movies #theatre #beautiful #stunning #films #blonde #sexsymbol #theburningbed #charliesangels #farrah84

Producers Jon Avnet and Steve Tisch who have produced and directed separately huge movies as Risky Business, Fried Green Tomatoes, Eraserhead, Black Swan, Forrest Gump, Dirty Dancing and many others offered the role of Francine Hughes in The Burning Bed to Cheryl Ladd their number one choice in 1984 . Cheryl Ladd thought the part was too violent and declined the role . Farrah Fawcett went after the role even tho most in Hollywood thought of her as a dumb blonde who could not act and producers hesitated casting her because they thought nobody wanted to see beautiful sweet Farrah get beat up for 2 hours . In 1985 Farrah Fawcett earned Emmy and Golden Globe nominations for her portrayal of Francine Hughes in the television movie The Burning Bed (1984) . She did not win . #farrahfawcettmajors #farrahfawcetthair #farrahfashion #thankgoditsfarrah #farrahfawcett #superstar #model #actress #film #blondegoddess #movie #hollywood #love #cinema #television #hollywoodlegend #fashion #movies #theatre #beautiful #stunning #films #blonde #sexsymbol #cherylladd #charliesangels #farrah84
