Original CHARLIE'S ANGELS star Farrah Fawcett is a closet rap fan.

The 57-year-old actress - who counts IN DA CLUB rapper 50 CENT as one of her favourites - was turned onto the genre after watching a TV movie with her teen son REDMOND.

She says, "It started when I saw this film on HBO. A wonderful film that Forest Whitaker was in. It was about young kids and guns and drugs.

"I watched it with my son and there was a great soundtrack. So I looked at the end and it was (by) Onyx.

"So I took (Redmond) to school the next day... and then when I picked him up I had the CD. The songs that they used (in the movie) were okay, but when I put in the first song it was (full of expletives). I was hitting the (fast-forward button) and the next one was 'sit on my face'!"
