Brittany Murphy 1977-2009

Monday December 21st 2009

We are genuinely shocked and saddened by the death of Brittany Murphy. When rumours began to surface on the internet yesterday afternoon, it honestly didn’t seem possible that it could be true.

Though she never really made it into the Hollywood A-list, Brittany Murphy gave a handful of absolutely topple performances since her iconic breakthrough role as misfit-turned-socialite Tai in Clueless.

She popped up in as many bad films as good ones, but managed to make even the shittest old indie rubbish seem worthwhile. Here she is in the seriously crap Spun:

She hadn’t exactly been busy in the four years since Sin City, but was currently working on five projects including Sylvester Stallone’s The Expendables.

It’s never going to seem right that Brittany Murphy is not around any more.
