Brittany Murphy died early this morning after she went into full cardiac arrest and could not be revived, multiple sources tell TMZ.

She was 32.

A 911 call was made at 8:00 AM from a home in Los Angeles that is listed as belonging to her husband, Simon Monjack, the Los Angeles City Fire Department tells TMZ.

We're told Murphy was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center where she was pronounced dead on arrival.

Murphy starred in such films as "Clueless," "8 Mile," and "Don't Say a Word."

We don't know for sure she was on drugs. Plenty of thin youngish people have heart attacks for reasons unrelated to drugs.

Hmm...  I wasn't really a fan of many of her movies, or her character on King of the Hill (or that show in general, really), but this is tragic news.

That thing that "fucked" with Eminem in 8 Mile, right? 
Well, that's sad.

People seriously don't know who Brittany Murphy is? :/ I know she isn't super famous or anything..but come on.

While I really don't know her, she did a voice for Futurama: The Beast with a Billion Backs.  She will be missed.  :(

Didn't know who she was until I searched for a picture. Shame that she died but I won't miss her.

#24 Posted by Apathylad (3234 posts) -

Yeah, I knew who she was by name. I wasn't a fan of her work, but I was shocked to hear that she died, especially since she was only 32. 2009 has been a bad year for celebrities.

Won't work cause Heath Ledger was actually a good actor.
#26 Posted by HypoXenophobia (1069 posts) -

Geez, the way this thread is going, I wonder what it says about me that I remembered who she was.
#27 Posted by jakob187 (22345 posts) -

Sucks to hear.  Wasn't a huge fan of most of her flicks, but still sucks.

Who cares, Jessica Alba was in that movie playing a stripper :P

I'll be honest. He wasn't a bad actor, he just did a lot of so-so work. Mainly teen chick flicks. Because in the last year of his life, he chose to do some more mature roles, doesn't escape the fact that he has a lot of crap in the past. Tho I am interested in his Terry Gilliam movie coming out. But more because of TG.
#34 Posted by JohnTheGamer (444 posts) -

Wow that's surprising... especially since I heard it here first, weird. Not that I've seen many or any of her movies, but still pretty sad.

Yes. Easily. And that has nothing to do with why he was eulogised after his death anyway.

That's a bummer.

#37 Edited by PenguinDust (12792 posts) -

Wow, too bad.  She was so young.  What a waste if it was drug related.  She's part of the cast for Syl Stallone's The Expendables due out in 2010.  I always thought she was very effervescent and fun. 

#38 Posted by SoothsayerGB (1500 posts) -

She was in Sin City and King of the Hill. Thats all I can think of.

No interest in her or her career what so ever, but sad none the less.

Wow, so much hate. I wasn't necessarily a fan but she's done some okay stuff. Either way, hope it wasn't drugs. Not sure if I'm ready for the whole spiel again.

What!  Did you not see Brokeback Mountain!!!  He was kissing all up on Jake Gyllenhaal.  He was like Om nom nom and Jake was like oh yeah feels good man.   Then everyone else was all, "GTFO!"  But they were all about the love.  
 
Man, Dude, Heath was such a great actor.  He really made me think about the plight of the gay man.
#46 Posted by evanbrau (1178 posts) -

Lookit all these edgy cats saying they don't know her. Seen her in some stuff and thought she was good in 8 Mile and Sin City so she'll be missed I guess.

#47 Posted by RHCPfan24 (8663 posts) -

She was a good slut in Sin City. What....does that not sound courteous? I really didn't like most of her work but a premature death is always unfortunate.

-_-  You mean she was in that movie playing a woman who was supposed to be a stripper but instead played Jessica Alba acting like a prude in a non-prude movie.

R.I.P, condolences to her loved ones.
#50 Posted by TwoOneFive (9787 posts) -

she grew up in jersey- drugs are almost certainly the reason for this.
