So sad to see her go. One of my favourites. :(

First became aware of Brittany Murphy in Clueless. My daughters first noticed her as the nanny to Dakota Fanning in Uptown Girl.

The girls liked her voice talents also in Happy Feet.

I wonder what events led up to her death. When I was 20, 32 seemed so old and far away.

32 now seems so young

R.I.P. Brittany

Steve, remember watching Clueless a million times when we had the free movie channels?

Anyone speculating on what happened yet?

Toronto Mike Verified as the defacto Toronto Mike

I'll take a shot at speculating...

This was the chubby girl in Clueless, who suddenly became ultra thin. My money's on an eating disorder that led to cardiac arrest - Karen Carpenter style.

I can't decide between an eating disorder or drugs. Sad.

I would say drugs. Her eyes always looked like a porn stars eyes. Always glassy or glazed over. Coke or Meth I would surmise. Heart can't take that shit for too long.....
