Brittany Murphy: 1977-2009

Summary

Actress Brittany Murphy, best known for her performances in Clueless, 8 Mile, and Riding in Cars With Boys, died Dec. 20 after going into cardiac arrest, according to media reports. She was 32. Murphy, whose work alternated between light comedy and darker, more dramatic roles, also starred in such hits as Sin City, Girl, Interrupted, and Don't Say a Word.. In a review of Little Black Book Roger Ebert praised Murphy's onscreen persona: "She has the quality of seeming immediately there on the screen, open to possibility, unrehearsed, unstudied, natural, appealing. She hasn't had the roles yet to prove it, but she is a born movie star." Back to Article
