And that’s quite a loss, for all of us.
Hollywood is mourning the death of actress Raquel Welch.
The superstar, who catapulted to fame in the 1960s with “Fantastic Voyage” and “One Million Years B.C.,” died Wednesday at the age of 82, her rep, Steve Sauer, confirmed to Fox News Digital.
“Raquel Welch, the legendary bombshell actress of film, television and stage, passed away peacefully early this morning after a brief illness,” Sauer said. “The 82-year-old actress burst into Hollywood in her initial roles in ‘One Million [Years] B.C.’ and ‘Fantastic Voyage.’”
“Her career spanned over 50 years starring in over 30 films and 50 television series and appearances. The Golden Globe winner, in more recent years, was involved in a very successful line of wigs. Raquel leaves behind her two children, son Damon Welch and her daughter, Tahnee Welch.”
In her heyday, which lasted longer than most, Raquel Welch was simply one of the most gorgeous women on the face of the Earth. Her name became a byword for the curvaceous, smoking-hot Hollywood bombshell archetype, and deservedly so. Fare thee well, Raquel.
