Brittany Murphy, 1977-2009. R.I.P.

Actress/singer Brittany Murphy has died of cardiac arrest. She was only 32.

Murphy is best known for her roles in movies like Clueless, Girl, Interrupted and 8 Mile. She was also the voice of Luanne Hill on the long running FOX animated series King of the Hill. Murphy also had a number one dance hit with Paul Oakenfeld on the U.S. Billboard charts in 2006 called "Faster Kill Pussycat."

Naturally, one might think this was caused by a drug overdose given her age. But it is also possible she could have had a blocked coronary artery or some other preexisting heart condition either she knew or didn't know about. Regardless of the cause, she left this world too soon.

Murphy is survived by Simon Monjack, her husband of 2½ years.
