Ryan O’Neal and Farrah Fawcett. He was the handsome Academy Award–nominated star of Paper Moon and the classic romance Love Story. She was the beautiful, all-American Charlie’s Angel, whose poster adorned the bedroom walls of teenage boys everywhere. One of the most storied love affairs in Hollywood history, their romance has captivated fans and media alike for more than three decades. In a tragic turn, the world lost Farrah after a tragic battle with cancer in 2009, but in his intimate memoir Both of Us, Ryan brings their relationship to vivid life.
Fans of each other from afar, Ryan and Farrah met through her husband, Lee Majors, and fell passionately in love. Soon, however, reality threatened their happiness and they struggled with some serious matters, including the disintegration of Farrah’s marriage; Ryan’s troubled relationship with his daughter, Tatum, and son, Griffin; mismatched career trajectories; and raising their young son, Redmond—all leading Ryan and Farrah to an inevitable split in 1997.
Ryan fought to create a life on his own but never stopped longing for Farrah. Eventually he realized that he had lost his true soul mate. Older and wiser, he and Farrah found their way back to each other and were excited to start a new life together. But their bliss was cut short when Farrah was diagnosed with cancer and passed away just three years later.
Ryan’s deep love for Farrah and his devotion to preserving her memory are evident in Both of Us. Drawing on decades’ worth of personal records and keepsakes, he has included never-before-seen photographs, letters exchanged between him and Farrah, and his own diaries, making this a poignant and compelling memento for her fans. Written with candor and emotional honesty, it is a true Hollywood love story.
After reading this incredibly well written book....
I have a new found respect for both of them! Honestly couldnt put it down!
A beautiful, tender story between two people who loved each other tremendously. I was very moved by this love story. If I could tell Ryan O'Neil one thing it would be this: you may have made mistakes in rearing your children-- many parents do; but there comes a point in everyone's life where children must stop blaming their parents for the hurts or chaos in their formative years. You can't carry the baggage with you all your life. Its time to move on. After all you've been through with your children, it's time to walk away from them. They are adults now. They have the power to turn their lives around if they so choose. Thank you for sharing your side of the story.
Great, touching book
This was honestly such an honest and touching book. I am truly touched by it. Highly recommend.
