Brittany
Murphy
1977-2009

I am – Hercules This one puts real tears on my face. Brittany Murphy, one of my favorite movie stars, passed away Sunday morning of cardiac arrest at age 32. While still a teenager, she served as Tai, one of the more memorable components of Amy Heckerling’s remarkable “Clueless.” She then went on to greater fame and success in a variety of big-screen starring roles, notably the sanatorium inmate Elisabeth in the 2001 smash “Don’t Say A Word” and the emerging romantic interest Alex in the 2002 blockbuster "8 Mile." She was also Shellie in 2005's "Sin City." She worked constantly, and will be seen among Sylvester Stallone's all-star cast next summer in "The Expendables." She was an amazing-looking actress who got plenty of work with just her voice, including roles in "Futurama," "Pepper Ann" and "Happy Feet." I loved that as her big-screen Hollywood stock began to rise at the start of this decade she never abandoned her supporting role as Luanne Platter in the brilliant Mike Judge/Greg Daniels animated collaboration “King of the Hill.” She was wonderful in that too. Her singing scored her (in collaboration with DJ Paul Oakenfold) the 2006 dance-club hit "Faster Kill Pussycat." Her other movie credits included "Drive," "Bongwater," "Drop Dead Gorgeous," "Girl, Interrupted," "Sidewalks of New York," "Summer Catch," "Riding in Cars With Boys," "Spun," "Just Married," "Uptown Girls," "The Groomsman," and "Love and Other Disasters." Find more on the fabulous and versatile Ms. Murphy here.

    by DavidDrayton

    We're living in a world of celebrity and seem to be "shocked" when someone like this passes. I grieve for her family and those who loved her but she has been a train wreck since she lost all those pounds years ago. Obviously, something was very wrong and even if she didn't die of drugs or an eating disorder now, it most certainly took a toll on her heart years ago. You entertained me BM and you will be missed...kinda makes The Dead Girl even creepier and more melancholy - if that's possible.

    Roy Disney Obit since this site won't post one

    by Mithrandil

    A proper obit for a true legend -- Roy Edward Disney, the nephew of Walt Disney, died Wednesday after a yearlong battle with stomach cancer, according to a Walt Disney Co. spokesman. Disney "played a key role in the revitalization of the Walt Disney Co. and Disney's animation legacy," the company said. He died in a Newport Beach, California, hospital at the age of 79. His father -- Roy O. Disney -- co-founded the Disney entertainment business with Walt Disney in 1923. Roy E. Disney's 56-year association with the company culminated in 2003 when he stepped down as vice chairman of Disney's board and chairman of the Disney Studio's Animation Department. He kept the title director emeritus and consultant in recent years, the company said. "As head of Disney Animation, Disney helped to guide the studio to a new golden age of animation with an unprecedented string of artistic and box office successes that included 'The Little Mermaid,' 'Beauty and the Beast,' 'Aladdin' and 'The Lion King,' " the company said. A private funeral service and cremation are planned, the company said. His ashes will be scattered at sea, it said. He was born in in Los Angeles seven years after his father and uncle began building the Disney empire. His entertainment career began in 1952 -- after he attended Harvard University and Pomona College -- with a job as an assistant film editor on the "Dragnet" TV series. He joined the family business a year later as an assistant film editor at the Walt Disney Studios. He received two Oscar nominations. One was as a writer and production associate on the 1959 short subject film "Mysteries of the Deep," and the second was for his work in 2003 as executive producer of "Destino," a film based on storyboards and original art by the iconic artist Salvador Dali. Disney founded Shamrock Holdings, an investment company owned by the Disney family, in 1978. He also was an avid competitive sailor, the company said. He held several elapsed-time records for offshore races in the Pacific Ocean, including multiple wins in the 2,225-mile Transpac race between Hawaii and California, it said.

    Just a guess here, but being anorexic, tooting up some cocaine, and trying to sober up with a shower could have easily ended with a heart attack. I don't really care what caused it, i always thought she was cute. I'm gonna miss not seeing her in films.

    Gene Barry Obit. I guess he didn't have boobs either

    by Mithrandil

    LOS ANGELES (AP) - Gene Barry, who played the well-dressed man of action in the television series "Bat Masterson," "Burke's Law" and "The Name of the Game," has died at age 90 of unknown causes, his son said Thursday. Fredric James Barry said the actor died Wednesday at a rest home in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Woodland Hills. Gene Barry essentially played the same character in all three series, which spanned the 1950s to the 1970s. Always fashionably dressed, the tall, handsome actor with the commanding voice dominated his scenes as he bested the bad guys in each show. In the first of the three, the Western "Bat Masterson," he was a frontier dandy who rarely resorted to gunplay, choosing instead to beat his rivals senseless with a gold-handled cane. Before he landed the role in 1958, Barry's movie career appeared to be on the rise, and he was at first reluctant to play Bat Masterson. He had starred in the science-fiction classic "War of the Worlds" in 1953 and opposite Clark Gable in "Soldier of Fortune" in 1955. He said he was won over to TV when he learned that lawman Masterson had worn a derby and carried a gold-handled cane in real life. "I went over to the wardrobe department, picked out a brocaded vest, looked in the mirror, and there was this elegant gentleman," he recalled in 1999. "I said, 'Hey, that's Bat! That's me!'" After two decades as a TV star, Barry found himself typecast as a television actor and never returned to prominence in films. Instead, he stayed active with stage appearances and dozens of TV guest appearances. He sang in such musicals as "Kismet" and "Destry Rides Again," and created the Broadway role of Georges, the gay night club owner in Jerry Herman's hit musical "La Cage aux Folles." That role brought him a Tony nomination in 1984. Barry appeared in the last season of Eve Arden's hit sitcom "Our Miss Brooks"--as a P.E. teacher who pines for Miss Brooks--before landing "Bat Masterson" in 1958. After the show ended its run on NBC in 1961, Barry moved to ABC to star as an LA detective in "Burke's Law," which lasted until 1966. The show was revived on CBS nearly 30 years later with Barry again in the lead but lasted only one season. "The Name of the Game" (1968-1972) offered an innovation: three suave actors--Barry, Robert Stack and Anthony Franciosa--alternating weekly in their own self-contained adventures. The only connective element: All were part of an investigative magazine of which Barry was the flamboyant owner. When the series folded, Barry filmed a syndicated show, "The Adventurer," in England. He was born Eugene Klass in New York City in 1919, and he met his wife, Betty Claire Kalb, when both were performing in the city. They were married 58 years, until her death in 2003. Barry is survived by his three children, Michael, Fredric and Elizabeth, as well as three grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

    by ShabbyBlue

    Yes, their deaths are sad, but they lived full lives and died at an old age. It's not nearly as tragic and "newsworthy" as talking about the death of a young actress. That's just the way it is and how it will always be among news media/gossip sites.

    I do feel sad for her family. A heart attack at the age of 32? It was no doubt either related to an eating disorder or an overdose. Murphy lost consciousness while on the set of some several movies and couldn't function on Something Wicked. TMZ is saying the LAPD is starting an investigation. http://www.thewrap.com/article/brittany-murphy-collapses-set-12032

    by Porco Drunko

    by GreatOne3

    With the explosion of mass media in the late 70s, more tv and movie actors and singers achieved fame than before. Those people are now in late 50s, and when they begin to die off, it'll seem like an unusual year, but percentage-wise, nothing unusual.

    A gorgeous, talented, and seemingly intelligent woman

    by IForgotAbout19

    I just last week found out that she was the voice of Luanne, what a brilliant character. She was FABULOUS in Sin City, her line "You're a DAMN fool" is so brilliantly oldschool. She's also in a great little movie called "Bongwater" trust me its more intelligent than the title would suggest, stars Luke Wilson, Andy Dick, Jeremy Sisto, and Jack Black is in it for a little while. Anyway, what's Paris up to, right?

Ill save my tears for when someone who masde a diff in the world of film making dies like spielberg, coppula, deniro, pacino etc. its no big loss to the world. She hasn't done shit in years anyway. Like tim robbins said in spy who shagged me 'would you miss? Would you miss it?' Well 'would you miss her? Would you miss her?' But I have a feeling somewhere down there is looking up at all of us smiling.also I hate the term rest in peace. Mother fucker isn't resting. She's dead. What does she need rest for??

    I never really like to swear, but fuck you guys. I know we like to imagine what its like to be famous or whatever and I am sure it's a lot easier physically then what I do for a living. But you know what, who cares how she died? She was a person first, an actress second. I for one mourn the loss of a human being, and one with obvious talent. If she overdosed, that's her personal business. I am just sad that another brilliant light has been extinguished far too early.

    fuck sake,are you really mourning the death of an actress who did fuck all in her short career? come on.Leave the house once in a while maybe you will make some lasting relationships with actual human beings who dont just exist on film.Although thats highly unlikely.Who would wanna have any kind of relationship with someone who gets emotional over something so trivial...

  • Dec. 20, 2009, 5:41 p.m. CST

    No, it IS tragic.

    by gotilk

    She was funny, talented. Cute as hell. Period. Go find yourself a manly woman, close your eyes and pretend she's your gym coach from high school.<br> And while diet pills and other kinds of drug abuse as well as eating disorders can lead to heart problems, women in their 30s that lead healthy lifestyles DO die of heart failure. It's not rare, just not very common. There's a solid chance she didn't end up as another hollywood cliche and since we don't really know... WE DO NOT KNOW!

    by gotilk

    I wouldn't mourn you. I doubt anyone would. There may even be a party. I would attend. With people. No, no, you're right. We can't have an opinion about an actress AND live lives with human relationships. It's all or nothing. So is your Brittany Murphy action figure boxed and mint like mine, or have you used it on your prostate like Carl's hat?

    by cheyne_stoking_DMS

    Who'd want to be in a relationship with someone who calls themselves Semen Stains and mocks the dead. When your idol dies(now make a joke about how Brittany Muphy was my idol), I hope he/she gets hit by a fucking truck and his/her corpse flies into a landfill. Trivial enough for you?

    A heart attack? At her age?

    by ricarleite2

    She either had a fucked up heart condition and never did any check ups in her life (which film insurance companies DEMAND), or she OD on some shit - which I believe should be the cause of her cardiac arrest.

    NOT a heart attack, but cardiac arrest...

    by Zardoz

    Meaning she stopped breathing, not the death of a part of the heart. (there's a big difference) Same thing that killed MJ. And I bet that, unfortunately, like MJ, drugs were involved here, too. (it's the leading cause of cardiac arrest) Still, very tragic. RIP Ms. Murphy.

    by Jesiah

    First noticed her in Don't Say A Word, liked her in Girl Interrupted, king of the hill, and others. I saw a tweet from Ashley Massaro saying "Brittany Murphy? 32. Sad." I thought Ashley was trying to make fun of her age (which makes no sense since they're only a few years apart), it wasn't til I came here and saw her name I knew what her tweet meant. God rest your soul, Brit. You were born a week later than me (not same year though) and I always have a soft spot for my fellow November babies. Man just when we thought 2009 was over with as far as celebrities passing, this happens. At least now she's singing and doing her puppet show for God.

    Fuck sake no talking to you people,where have a i mocked her in any post i have made? i dont have a bad thing to say against the woman,just this pathetic outpouring of nonsense thats being spouted here.Its insincere bullshit people,you know it and everyone else knows it.But hey carry on,Get all offended by the jokes about fucking her dead corpse and have flame wars or outdo each other by trying to to write about just how much you loved and and how amazing an actress she was and how this role or that role changed my life,im off to see Avatar.Bye Bye children.

    Brittany Murphy + reboot rumor = Weekend at Bernettes?

    by Deviant Apex

    I think I get it now. Awhile back I heard there was a Weekend at Bernies reboot and with Brit dead I just put two and two together. Maybe shes just a method actor and the new film is instead "Weekend at Bernettes." See, she faked her death that way she could see what it feels like to be authenticly dead and play her role more realistically. Im telling you "Weekend at Bernettes" is going to be the new generations Blair Witch only scary. Srry, that was pretty fucked up wasnt it anyway R.I.P. Brittany Murphy.

When the guy from Jake 2.0 tried to make fun of her for it (after she had left), Craig quietly shushed him like he knew more about the situation than he was letting on. Maybe he could tell that she was going through something like addiction? She did act pretty weird on the show.

  • Dec. 20, 2009, 8:04 p.m. CST

    I rather like her.

    by MR. MURDOCH

    She seemed genuine, and she had a quirkyness about her that separated her from the rest of the everyday Hollywood starlets, most of which can't act their way out of a paper bag, and have no personality to speak of. Brittany Murphy may have been "weird," but she was a hell of a lot more interesting for that than most others of her age in the industry. She may not be remembered fondly by many, but she'll remain much more important to me than almost anyone else from her generation of American actresses.

    To all of you bad mouthing Brittany Murphy

    by acebandage

    I liked her acting. I thought she was an attractive woman. Most of all, she was a human being. For those reasons, I mourn her passing. Whatever lead to her heart failure, it doesn't matter. The point is a woman died! To bad mouth her so soon after her death because of your personal opinions is reprehensable! Because you are human beings, when you die I will mourn the loss but I also hope there are scumbags out there just like yourselves that will bad mouth you on your deathbeds because you are useless wastes of flesh who have achieved nothing and are a drag on humanity.

    if not drugs, my guess is undiagnosed heart valve issues

    by MurderMostFowl

    I had a close friend who had a irregular heartbeat since early childhood and it never effected her ( she was active and seemingly healthy ), to the point where she was basically ignoring the fact that she had one. <BR><BR> but when she was in her early 30's , she was under a period of "life" stress that had come up suddenly ( nothing extreme, just several things that came at her at once ) and then, without any previous symptoms ( or at least nothing she ever told anyone ), has a heart attack and dies.<BR><BR> Because it was so sudden, they did an autopsy. The doctor said one of her heart valves had become defective and basically wouldn't let the heart pump anymore.

    ...that people on this talkback like Semen Stains (seriously...

What the fuck are YOU doing with yourself? If making it in Hollywood is no big deal, then you feel free to go ahead and do it since it's apparently not that big an accomplishment. Fucking ridiculous that someone dies and the first thing to be spouted from some people is that they're silly for mourning them. Sorry for that. When you die I'll be sure to piss on your tombstone. And no, I'm not torn up by Brittany's death and while I'm saddened by it I'm sure I'll get over it.

An actress died. I don't know her personally, and I'm not all that affected by it, but I would never slam her in a talkback that's been made for her obituary. What kind of people are some of you trying to be? Have some taste. Harry...you gotta disable the talk backs with these man, I don't wanna read some stupid 10 year old trying to be funny on the internet at the expense of someone's death...It makes us all look bad, as I'm pretty sure you get some high profile people read your pages.

    Roy Disney...

    by SK229

    is the man most directly responsible for saving the Disney company, not once, but TWICE. Read Disney War and you'll see how instrumental he was in ushering in the ultra-successful Eisner era and then putting a bullet to its head when it was necessary for the company to survive. Steve Jobs went to Roy and told him that he couldn't make a deal as long as Eisner was at the helm. Pixar is perhaps Disney's (actually not perhaps, it IS, by evidence of the fact that Jobs is now the largest Disney shareholder) most important creative relationship since Walt himself ran the company. And Eisner fucked that right up... and Roy saved it. This site loves Pixar and yet, Pixar wouldn't be with Disney right now if it weren't for Roy and Stanley Gold's campaign to oust Eisner when he pretty much was running the company as if he owned it outright. But no obit here... anyone that wants to know more, read Nikki Finke's obit. I'm sorry, but I simply cannot understand there being no obit here for Roy.

See her work as Christopher Walken's foil in "The Prochecy 2" for an early example of her ability to shine even in otherwise forgettable material.

    Why Are People Presuming Drugs Were The Cause??

    by FreeBeer

    Drugs may have been the cause, but she could have just had a fucking heart attack. I had a friend who played G.A.A footall and never touched a drug in his life and he died of a heart attack, intially lablled sudden death sydrome. Youths die of hearts attacks all the time, often its genetic, and has nothing to do with their lifestyle. Again, drugs may have played a part, but don't be fucking assholes jumping to fucking conclusions. And if her death does turn ut to be drug related, so fucking what, the poor girl is still dead and no more deserving of being so.

That's cool, because it use to be fun. <p> Now all you got is a bunch of buzzards circling around angry at the world and picking away the flesh of everything they feast there eyes on. Making it a fucking task for people who actually like to come to Harry's site because they genuinely like to discuss and be informed about movies. <p> I don't know if it's because they been on a shitty job for too long or not having work at all. Or maybe they're pissed because of being in a shitty relationship too long, or no relationship at all. Who knows? <p> Whatever it is I hope you can get through it. <p> The lesson to be learned from Mrs. Murphy death is life is too short and it's a gift to be able to see tomorrow, not a privilege. <p> So why not practice being a lil' bit respectful and compassionate toward somebody else, especially the deceased, She may not have meant jack shit to you but I'm quite sure she did to somebody. Wouldn't you want the same respect If you lost a love one? <p> If you practice that, maybe then, when you crack a joke later, it will be funny because then it will be the right time.

    Fuck off, it's a person's life. If this was bandied about CNN twenty four hours a day, then you might have a case. I'm not even a fan of hers at all, but it's getting a little too douchey for people to come on here and bitch about her and her death publicity. I've heard people citing the war heroes in Afghanistan/Iraq, (and do I even have to say this is totally different?) but to shirk off her life is completely soulless. I'm sure if it was any obscure geeky character associated with Babylon 5 everyone would be having a shit fit, and would probably be occupying my place in this talkback.

Her friends knew her. She was a daughter, a sibling, a friend to somebody and likely many. They are mourning. You, who has no right to, are arguing why she is of no great loss to you or to cinema. Well, if you were to die tomorrow the same could be said of you. Doe's that make your death any less tragic than that of an Oscar winning actor? Show some respect for her and her family.

    I can't believe the overall tone of this talkback. I am a cynical person, but to keep seeing message after message describing her as a worthless hollywood celebrity piece of trash is more than tasteless, it's disturbing. The people of this website are surely not looking for sympathy, but rather for an outlet to broadcast a piece of news relating to film.

    I've tried to reason as to why this talkback is so deeply upsetting, and I think I've finally found an explanation. She is not a huge, public celebrity, so she is not catered with the usual "her work is extensive, beautiful, compelling, culturally significant" bullshit that others are afforded. So when people degrade her or her films, no matter how bad (and I'm not a fan of hers by any means), it sends a totally inappropriate message. She's not a big enough celebrity to be recognized -- well, fuck. Last time I checked, amateur reviews for Avatar and talkbacks ranging from Dollhouse to Survivor are so obscure it borders on the obscenely irrelevant. This is straight up news, nothing more. Save your condescending opinions for the next bit of Spiderman news and not the death of another human being.

The only thing I see is people perhaps not showing the same respect as they might to an older more established star. This probably stems from the fact that the person in question in this TB seems to have, from all intents and purposes, gotten involved in the wrong relationship and seemingly squandered their talents and in the end, their life. Its clearly a tragedy and a shame, but.....the responsibility lies with the person making decisions in their own life.

    i'm not apologizing for shit

    by phoenixmagida5th

    I meant all I said. She wasn't very talented or did anything really noteworthy and picked shitty projects and did drugs. Now if stallone died that is a tragedy for a man who has influenced so many people and made a major contribution to the film industry Would be gone. But I wouldn't cry over him id be sadden but this chick really was a nobody. But people are acting like their own mother has died. And people saying I have no respect for live well I'm still alive but people have wished cancer on my family and for me to die. So who doesn't respect life again? And I have had a person in my fam die of a heart attack young and I cry for them not some stranger I never met. People need to stop putting celebs on a pedestal. There are people who never did drugs who died and people are crying over this cunt? What the fuck ever get off your high horse. And I like how for all your religous nut sout there everyone goes to heaven. So if your so religous a chick like this who did coke all the time gets in lol then who gets into hell?!!

    the fall of western civilization

    by JoseJones

    would start with calling Brittany Murphy "brilliant and beautiful".. sad that she's dead... anyone naive enough to think that this heart attack was most likely caused by a mix of drugs and some form of eating disorder (jumping to conclusions and 90% likely are 2 different things) well you are also part of the start of the fall of western civilization. however, a life is a life and this is sad for some people. i get it. lets just use a little perspective.

But here, if you think you've got some grand point, no matter how incredibly insensitive and assholeish it is - shit, it's BETTER if it's over the top insensitive and assholeish - you post it. Because you think you'll get some great geek pat on the back or some other bullshit. The fact of the matter is that most of the people posting all the hate here are still trying to be one of the "cool kids", failing just like they always did. End of rant.

    It's funny that you correct someone's grammar considering your own posts look like they were written by a paint huffing third grader. I don't think assholes get it. You can show empathy or sympathy for someone without showing less for anyone else. People are sad that a young woman has died. It's still sad when soldiers, firefighters, and family members die. Yes, you should go on with your day, but I don't think any talkbacker here has said anything about how the world or even Hollywood will never be the same. Just admit that you're intimidated by 4chan so you're trolling here for the attention you don't get from people in the real world. Admit it.

I am aware this is a movie website but still more important people true heores die everyday and they don't get their special thread on any website why should this one be any different? Because she was in a few movies? Whatever. Live by the sword die by the sword. If she focused on her film career instead of doing drugs she may not have died so young.

    Ok, I did a quick scan of this TB

    by Continentalop

    And I see that of the 415 post I counted (give or take a dozen, about 128-130 are purely positive condolences; 150-160 are neutral (talking about Brittany's career, the cause of death, her husband, Roy Disney, or something off hand to another TBer); about 44 are truly tasteless jokes at Brittany's expense (although Deviant Apex did apologize afterwards - class act); and another 80 or so post are being become indignant or replying angrily at something offensive another TBer said. <P> Of those 44 post, the majority are from the same tbers: Metroid_Fetish, HollywoodHellraiser, Semen Stains, Saber12 (so indifference to Murphy's death that he has to keep posting about it to let us know how indifferent he is), Pheonixmagida5th, ZombieHeathLedger and Linguo_IS_Dead. About a handful of people are responsible for the tasteless content (and even that is debatable about what post are truly tasteless and callous and which ones are just bad, gallow style humor). <P> So hardly the end of the world people. Just like it always is, a couple of people making the most noise. And even than they are not the majority of this TB (people upset with the tasteless jokes outnumber the offensive TBers). <P> In short, the sky is not falling and we can go back to talking about Murphy and her unfortunate death. <P> *Note, Cheyne probably should not be listed as a guy overreacting. He did a good job of singling out TBers he had a problem with and taking them to task. Kudos.

    It's a shame when someone dies young, whether it was natural causes or drug related the very concept of someone dying so young is not great. <p> When did it become OK to mock the dead?

    I hate reading about these things online, then look at the comments and find the usual assholes. The people who have to discuss it logically, explain why other people's deaths are comparatively worse than this person's death. Or the folks who like to say, "No, she wasn't any good she sucked. So shut up."<p>The bottom line is this, a celebrity's death will always get a certain reaction because people feel like they know the person a little bit, and feel bad about it. Do people not appreciate certain people until after they're dead? Sure. People are just remembering they liked her in certain roles, and gave them a little entertainment.<p>I suppose these obits should read: "Brittany Murphy, a person whose death was no less tragic than a non-famous person and was really not very talented when compared to other actors, died this week."

Same applies to Anne Heche. who got her act together and is now in comeback mode. we live in an age where, if a leader dies when he is out office, and his legacy is divisive, it wont take to long for the people who dislike that person to start having a go. in Charles Haugheys case, it took two days. for matt cooper to drag up all the "supposed" corruption. and for veteran irish journalist vincent browne, he went the other way. he befriended haughey.

In her final interview on December 3, she described her love for her family, her charity work and her ballet regime. Appearing dazed, distracted and frail, she admitted she was "a bit thinner now than what I would like to be". She said she kept healthy with exercise. "I was a ballerina for a long time," the actress said. "I still take ballet lessons now - what it does to your body is incredible." Murphy, who was married British screenwriter Simon Monjack, added: "I feel blessed for everything I have in my life and my family." She initially struggled to find work after filming Clueless, the movie that made her famous. "So funny, but it was hard to get a job for two years after that, everyone thought I was really Tai," she explained. Murphy is understood to have collapsed in the bathroom of her Beverly Hills home. An ambulance crew attempted to resuscitate her but she was pronounced dead at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre. Neighbour Clare Staples said she saw Murphy on a stretcher but she "looked as though she was dead at the scene". Authorities are looking into Murphy's medical history but because toxicology tests will be required an official cause of death may not be confirmed for some time. A police investigation has been launched and officers have visited the property, located above Sunset Strip. Murphy's father, Angelo Bertolotti, said he learned of her death from his son and was stunned. "She was just an absolute doll since she was born," Mr Bertolotti said. "Her personality was always outward. Everybody loved her - people that made movies with her, people on a cruise - they all loved her. She was just a regular gal." He said he had not heard much about the circumstances of his daughter's death. He divorced her mother when Murphy was young and had not seen Murphy in the past few years. Mr Bertolotti said he used to be in the Mafia and served a jail sentence for drug offences. "She was just talented," Mr Bertolotti said. "And I loved her very much." Murphy was born on November 10, 1977, in Atlanta. She grew up in New Jersey and later moved with her mother to Los Angeles to pursue her acting career.

    On the tough times you described. Also, Comic Book Villains was a movie that (IF I REMEMBER CORRECTLY) had Natasha Lyonne (spl?) and Cary Elwes which was about 2 or 3 comic book stores fighting over the comic book collection of someone who had just passed. I thought it was an ok fliq, a lot of people pissed on it. I thinq Natasha was one of the co-owners of a store (I believe her husband was the hardcore geek?) and Cary was a bully who turns out SPOILER is also a bit of a comiq book geeq @ the end. If that summary is wrong I apologize, I only watched bits and pieces of it and that was years ago.

    The AICN Obit Talkback Checklist

    Initial reaction calling the deceased amazing/terrific/legendary regardless of the actual work/skill of the deceased? Check. <P> Backlash calling the deceased a hack/bitch/terrible performer? Check. <P> Back-backlash calling the backlashers horrible people who don't respect the dead? Check. <P> Group of talkbackers immediately jump to assorted suspicions regarding cause of death (drugs/conspiracy/eating disorder/etc)? Check. <P> Backlash against the suspicious talkbackers demanding to know why everyone always assumes drugs/conspiracy/eating disorder/etc? Check. <P> Small chorus of talkbackers demanding to know why other noted death is not represented with an obit? Check. <P> Entire talkback degenerates into nasty insults back and forth?

    It's sad that she died so early, but it was quite obvious that she had a myriad of problems and was almost constantly living in a daze. The fact that her husband didn't want an autopsy conducted? HARDCORE drugs. While it IS sad, I have to say I didn't think much of her acting ability. I can't recall seeing her in anything where she left any kind of visible impression on me.

    in the U.S. It is very likely that this is exactly what she died from. So, I suggest that everyone cease their judgmental accusations until and autopsy is performed and the coroner's report released. Ask yourself this question: Does it really make you feel that much better about yourself and your life to trash and dehumanize someone you don't even know?

    by BurnHollywood

    Maybe in an earlier era she could have walked in Lucille Ball's footsteps as the "lovably daffy" girlfriend/neighbor/best friend in a string of B-movie comedies...<p> Thanks to the impossibly shitty screenwriting of this era, though, there wasn't a place for her...the only role these modern hacks know how to write is for the perpetually supportive girlfriend who doesn't say much but stands there smiling and looking pretty.<p> I remember Sarah Silverman saying she bailed on a big screen career because she didn't want to play the expository "best friend" over and over and over again ("Trudy! It's been nine months since you've broken up with Chad! You need to find somebody new!"). I can't help but wonder if the cancellation of KING OF THE HILL was actually the beginning of the end for this poor gal...Luanne Platter was practically a Shakespeare character compared to the roles currently being offered to the never ending wave of aspiring actresses breaking themselves on Hollywood shores these days...

    stop pushing waifs on us, Hollywood & fashion industry!

    by lynxpro

    This has absolutely got to stop. For the most part, heterosexual men do not like waifs. The fashion industry only likes them because they are walking coat hangers to them, not because they have any desire to fuck them in the physical sense of the term. So why does Hollywood have this fetish for actresses like Natalie Portman & Co. who have bodies like 12 year old boys? Why??? Why must other actresses with curves have to starve themselves to appease these douche bag Hollywood execs and their closet pedo sensibilities? Look what they've done to Jennifer Connolly over the years. Told her she could never win an Oscar with her jugs. And now look at her. Thank Crom that some European actresses like Monica Bellucci can tell them to go fuck themselves over it. Hollywood thinking cast [now rail thin] Teri Hatcher instead of Bellucci in *Tomorrow Never Dies* over Pierce Brosnan's objection. I rest my case.

    Stop with the heart attack

    by corplhicks

    "heart attack" is not a medical term-- her heart could stop for many reasons-- drugs, electrolyte disorder, even coronary disease (yes, it's rare but can happen), congenital heart anomalies that can kill later in life. An autopsy will hopefully answer the question. What they lay press means by heart attack is that the heart stopped beating. That is not a diagnosis per se, it's the end process of something else.

    I was not saying Murphy was a waif back in the day, I was asserting that Hollywood's fetish for rail thin actresses put stress on her to starve herself into being thinner. Look at the Christina Ricci of today for yet another example of this Hollywood thin fetish.

    wondering if she and Mickey Rourke were friends...

    by BrokenHeath

    I saw Spun for first time this past week where they were both great and she played his girlfriend. Of course they were both in Sin City and she plays his girlfriend in the upcoming The Expendables as well. It's a sad loss, I always liked her . Prescription pill abuse is the drug of choice for a lot of people and now that stars are dying of it maybe more will be done about it.

    An AICN obit is not complete until we get an appearance by thelordofhell telling us how Abe Vigoda is laughing at us all.

    People have forgotten how to give an intelligent opinion without tearing into someone personally.

    She's not like Michael Jackson, who was begging to be made fun of. She was just an actress. No need to attack her, just because no one likes you.

    I think it's clear she was anorexic...

    by Snake Foreskin

    She probably was a drug abuser and didn't eat for extended periods of time. It is too much of a strain on the heart. The fact that the hubby didn't want an autopsy makes it hard to come up with concrete evidence, but speculation is what we do best...

    Courtney Love is next!

    Then the Olsen sisters. Unless Ashley eats Mary Kate. That'll buy her some time.

    Courtney Love

    by rogueleader66

    Should have been gone long before all these other people. She needs to join her pussy ass husband in the afterlife and let their kid live somewhat of a normal life. Sadly the garbage of humanity seems to never ever die, they live for what seems like for fucking ever.

    Really? What did Roy Disney do other than live longer than Brittany? What did Roy Disney do other than have a name that's been hammered into your head as being important. Peace and solace to BOTH their families. All loss is tragic and PERSONAL! And that's the point. The people coming on here with ANYTHING to say other than RIP, or something to that affect, are trying to prove something about THEMSELVES! Not the world. Not society. Not whatever importance they THINK the deceased had, or didn't. You're trying to make yourselves out to be intelligent, or profound, or witty. EPIC FAIL IN ALL REGARDS!

    Abe Vigoda is a Vultori

    Either that or Christ. He did play a character named "Fish."

    favorite star??!!

    Coroner said she died from Natural causes. doing a shit load of blow can naturally cause your heart to stop... only reason a 32 year old can have a heart attack. She was OK, not great, decent

    i want you all listen to this...

    I have heard the brittany murphy had diabetes. my late dad had diabetes. If your blood sugar gets too high you become hypoglaecemic and you have to go to hospital, to reduce the blood sugar. this next thing is very important. if your blood sugar gets too low, your run the risk of getting urinary tract infection. I have seen that up close and peronal. it was the most shocking thing to see. it wnet undetecected and untreated in my dad for six months. they gave him very powerful medication to treat that. It may well be that britaany was on a concoction of different things. when my dad was rushed to hospital he was toxic. he could have died. which he did anyway. from a bleed in the brain.
