Here’s an Animated Lost Interview With Farrah Fawcett About Warding Off a Would-Be Mugger


Blank on Blank, a studio that renders audio interview in black-and-white animations, got their hands on a lost 1994 interview with the late Farrah Fawcett. The interview, with Larry Grobel, describes an incident in 1983 when a cab driver tried to rob Fawcett with a screwdriver. Look after the jump for the video, in which the one-time Charlie’s Angel lets rip a story of her empowerment floating on a stream of really foul, really entertaining language.

The story begins with Fawcett standing somewhere in the Theater District, trying to get to the Off-Broadway play, Extremities, she was headlining. In her desperation not to be late, Fawcett jumped into an unmarked “gypsy” cab, driven by a guy who actually just wanted to rob her.

Fawcett was one bad, bad lady: She not only called the mugger’s bluff, she turned the tables and threatened to use her stilettos as weapons.
