Jaclyn Smith Supports Ryan O'Neal in Court
Former Charlie’s Angels star Jaclyn Smith was wiping away tears outside a Los Angeles court. She got emotional as she supported Ryan O’Neal in his battle to gain ownership of the Andy Warhol portrait of her co-star Farrah Fawcett.
She told INSIDE EDITION, “It's hard, emotional, I want to stand up and say, ‘Hey you know, I know the truth here. I know what she'd feel,’ but still you have to be quiet.”

When Fawcett died in 2009, she left all her artwork to the University of Texas. But O’Neal says the Warhol, said to be worth as much as $12 million, is his and he wants his and Fawcett’s son, Redmond to have it.
Redmond said, “This portrait is a family heirloom. It has no money value to me, it's sentimental. It will stay in the family. It's a beautiful portrait of my mom and it belongs where it is.”
Smith, who still looks stunning at 68, is making an emotional plea for the jury to rule in O’Neal’s favor.
INSIDE EDITION said, “In a lot of ways you're Ryan’s angel here today.”
Smith said, “I’m maybe his second favorite. He had a real favorite and a good one and uh, she's here too.”
