Los Angeles (Ap) -- Farrah Fawcett, whose stunning looks and blinding smile made her a pop icon of the 1970s, has died.

She was 62.

Her spokesman, Paul Bloch, says 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 tv's "Charlie's Angeles."

A poster of her in a clingy swimsuit sold in the millions.

She 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."

    So sad I'm too young for Charlie's Angels. I loved Farrah in the Burning Bed I was young and after watching her in that I never wanted anything to do with domestic violence!
