Actress Brittany Murphy died yesterday after suffering a full cardiac arrest. She was only 32 years old. Online gossip site TMZ said her mother, Sharon, discovered Murphy unconscious in the shower. The Los Angeles Fire Department said it responded to an emergency call about 8 a.m. PST.
She starred in films such as Clueless, Girl, Interrupted, 8 Mile, Sin City, Just Married and Riding in Cars with Boys. Murphy starred in films opposite Michael Douglas, Ashton Kutcher, Eminem and Angelina Jolie, but failed to attain their level of success. In recent years, she worked mostly in low-budget movies, while her emaciated appearance sparked concerns about her health.
