Ten weeks before Farrah Fawcett died tragically of cancer at age 62 last week, one of her silver-screen co-stars was singing the actress’ praises – and rightfully so.
Interviewed in April on Mr. Media, Charles Grodin reminisced about working with the beloved beauty in the 1979 comedy-thriller Sunburn.
“Farrah? Just as nice a person as I’ve ever met. Just couldn’t be nicer,” he told host Bob Andelman.
“I had love scenes [with her], but I never went out with her. She was a darling – and is a darling person,” he continued.
“I’ve never heard anyone say anything negative about her. And I know people who know her a lot better than I do.”
Also during the interview, Charles recalled how a bit player in the flick “accidentally” assaulted him while filming.
“I was supposed to be unconscious and he was supposed to punch me while I was lying there,” he said.
But after breaking Charles’ nose, the actor said to the leading man:
“You have all these love scenes with Farrah, and I have a big crush on her.”
