Farrah Fawcett, the 1970s "It Girl" who was known for her cascading golden hair and bombshell body, died in a Los Angeles hospital today, according to The Associated Press.

Reports of former "Charlie's Angels" star Farrah Fawcett's weight plummeting to a mere 86 pounds shocked the nation earlier this month, but her doctor said today the rumors are false.

The iconic actress, 62, became a symbol of the will to survive through her years-long battle with cancer. Fawcett's death comes on the heels of longtime romantic partner Ryan O'Neal's declaration that she agreed to marry him.

"I've asked her to marry me, again, and she's agreed," O'Neal, 68, told Barbara Walters in an exclusive interview for ABC's "20/20" scheduled to air Thursday. Walters sat down with O'Neal and others close to Fawcett in the final days of the actress' life.

Fawcett and O'Neal began dating in 1980 and lived together with son Redmond. The two never officially tied the knot, but not for O'Neal's lack of trying.

"I used to ask her to marry me all the time," he said. "But ... it just got to be a joke, you know. We just joked about it."

Now, Fawcett leaves behind O'Neal as well as their 24-year-old son. She was previously married to Lee Majors, star of "The Six Million Dollar Man," from 1973 to 1982.

Fawcett was diagnosed with anal cancer in 2006. Although doctors declared her free of cancer in February 2007, a few months later they learned that the cancer had returned.

Damn, that sucks....

I was one of millions of young boys who had the famous poster of her hanging on my bedroom wall. She was a true beauty.

R.I.P. Farrah. Condolences to Ryan and Redmond.

This is very sad. Thoughts go out to her family and friends as they grieve her loss ... hope that they find comfort in the memories of happier times spent together.

I watched the documentary a couple of months ago that Miss Fawcett produced that followed her heroic battle with Cancer ... very touching. I was not a Charlies Angels fan but did appreciate her excellent acting work in movies like Extremities and The Burning Bed. I think she was more than a poster girl for a hairstyle ... some of these more complex acting roles, her art, and the tremendous will to live she demonstrated through her illness really showed a different side of her than the 'It Girl' media persona. Sleep soundly Farrah... no more pain.

What a fight she put up! She kept holding on... Having watched her documentary I became an even bigger fan of hers! How sad for her dad to be left behind losing two daughters to cancer in their early 60's.

RIP Farrah

Very courageous and showed much dignity in the end days. Certainly an icon for those guys that are my age. All the girls had Farrah 'dos.

Rest in peace. Peace to to you Ryan and Redmond.

Very sad indeed. I saw on some show that Farrah and ryan were going to get married. I hope they had the chance to do that if that is what they wanted. Like Dave and I'm sure many others here, I liked Farrah quite a bit.

As mentioned by lolasdeb, if you have never seen Extremities and The Burning Bed then you should. Extremities really suprsised me at the time. Always loved Farrah for the looks but that was the first time that the acting really blew me away. Great in that movie and I have rarely ever cheered someone on while they are torturing somebody but I did while watching that.

RIP Farrah

I also had that famous poster. It was the first thing someone would see when they came into my bedroom. She is truly an Angel now. RIP Farrah.
