Jobs in Hollywood: What it was like working with Farrah Fawcett

A friend of mine on facebook wrote a small post on the day Farrah Fawcett died to remember her. My friend was the AD (Assistant Director) on a shoot where Farrah was being filmed nude with only paint covering her body. To make her comfortable, he and several other crew members got naked with her and worked all day naked.  Just shoes and a headset! They joked and laughed all day long and Farrah gave him a big hug at the end of the day and thanked him for making the day so much fun. It’s a big family in the film industry. Remember that, and be there for each other <3

But I knew they were movie extras. You’d never see a NBA player hanging out in…
