2009 has been a sad year for celebrities. We lost Farrah Fawcett
, David Carradine
, Michael Jackson
and so many others. Now, word has been released that Brittany Murphy
died this morning of cardiac arrest. She was 32 years-old.
Murphy was born in Atlanta, Georgia, but raised in New Jersey and Los Angeles. In her early teens she began working on television series like Blossom
, Sister, Sister
and Party of Five
. It was Brittany's breakout role Tai Fraiser in 1995 's Clueless
that made her a star. More hit movies continued like 1999's Girl, Interrupted
, 2001's Don't Say a Word
(her line, "I'll never tell..." became a catch phrase) and 2005's Sin City
. In 2002 she played Eminem
's girlfriend in the semi-autobiographical 8 Mile
, which also included Mekhi Phifer
and Kim Basinger
Brittany Murphy once dated Ashton Kutcher
. Kutcher Twittered, "2day the world lost a little piece of sunshine. My deepest condolences go out to Brittany's family, her husband, and her amazing mother Sharon.
" Russell Simmons also shared his thoughts via Twitter, "I met britney murphy before her star rose its tough to find peace in fame. I wish her peace and happiness in her next lifetime."
As of now, no cause has been released on why Brittany Murphy
passed away so suddenly.
Our condolences go out to all of Murphy's families and friends. Check out the clip below from 8 Mile
