Brittany Murphy has passed away after going into cardiac arrest early this morning. The actress was rushed to hospital, but died before they arrived. She was aged 32.
First introduced to mainstream audiences in 1995's Clueless, Murphy played Tai, one of Alicia Silverstone's chirpy sidekicks. Following acclaim for her role in Girl, Interrupted, alongside a part in Drop Dead Gorgeous, she broke into stardom with her supporting role in Eminem's 8 Mile.
The former girlfriend of Ashton Kutcher, she appeared with him in the comedy Just Married, before starring in Robert Rodriguez's Sin City.
A talented young actress, still on the rise, Murphy's vocals continue to entertain through her work on Futurama, Happy Feet and King of the Hill. Murphy is survived by her husband, Simon Monjack.
