Farrah Fawcett - O'neal Overwhelmed At Fawcett Memorabilia Exhibition

RYAN O'NEAL fought back tears as he paid tribute to his longtime partner FARRAH FAWCETT at the opening of an exhibition featuring the late actress' memorabilia.
The actor donated several items to the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History, including an iconic red swimsuit which helped make the Charlie's Angel star an international poster pin-up.
He was joined by Fawcett's best friend Alana Stewart, his daughter Tatum and son Redmond at the unveiling of the items last week (ends06Feb11), and O'Neal admits he was overwhelmed by the occasion.
The star says, "I don't think that Farrah realised the impact that poster would have on the world. She was one of a kind. She had energy and an aura I have never seen before or since. She was magnificent."
Fawcett died in June 2009 aged 62 after a lengthy battle with cancer.
