Farrah Fawcett sobbed as she watched her documentary on Friday (15.05.09).
The 'Charlie's Angels' star - who is battling anal cancer - found it difficult to see herself looking so ill in TV show 'Farrah's Story'.
Her friend Alana Stewart said: "She cried a few times. It was very emotional for her and I think it's because it's been a very, very long journey and going back through it was probably a bit painful.
"When it was over, I said, 'OK, so did you like it?' And she said, 'I liked it very, very, very, very, very much.' Those were her exact words."
Farrah was almost unconscious when the programme came on air, but was completely lucid by the end.
Her long-term partner Ryan O'Neal said: "When we began watching it Friday night, she had a very low pulse. But, as the show went on, it kept going up and up and up. It was wonderful.
"We have to now show her one of her films every night."
Almost nine million people tuned in to watch the two-hour special that documented the 62-year-old star's fight against the illness.
Farrah is said to have shed more tears when she found out how many viewers tuned in and is thrilled a sequel has been commissioned.
Ryan said: "We haven't stopped filming, and we're going to make a second instalment on her life eventually."
