O’Neal sometimes wishes Fawcett would never wake upMay 15th, 2009 - 4:37 pm ICT by ANI
New York, May 15 (ANI): American actor Ryan O’Neal has revealed that he sometimes wishes actress Farrah Fawcett, who is suffering from cancer, would not wake up from her sleep.
Fawcett, 62, shows a strong face despite the pain she has been going through, but for her 68-year-old O’Neal the suffering his long-time lover has to go through is just too much to take.
“I just don’t see how she could be happy,” the New York Daily News quoted him as saying in a heart-wrenching interview on NBC’s “Today” show on May 14.
“I feel like crying, I’ll tell you that, when I look at her sometimes.
“I kind of wish that she would go to sleep, just go to sleep. It’s not my right, but I just don’t see how she could be happy,” he said.
But even though he wishes for her pain to end, O’Neal is not fully ready to let her go.
“I let her go weeks and weeks ago, but she came back,” he said of his partner’s touch-and-go condition.
“I keep promising to take her to Italy. She said ‘I’ll drive’.
“I don’t think there will be a trip to Italy, though,” he added. (ANI)
