Re: Brittany Murphy dead at 32

I developed a crush on her from "Sidewalks Of New York." She made the stupidest movie watchable. Her career lasted only 14 years. I thought she was a talented actress.

I Will watch "Girl Interrupted" tonight.

The trailer was on VuDu and my girlfriend goes "what's that?" and I said "some Brittany Murphy crapfest". Hours later - dead.

Shame. I liked her in Clueless and various other films.

A shame. A lot of people didn't like her but I was a pretty big King of the Hill fan and I enjoy 8 Mile. Way too young to die.

Must be drugs. I wonder which ones she was taking?

Ashton to Brittany: 'See You on the Other Side'

Posted Dec 20th 2009 1:35PM by TMZ Staff

Ashton Kutcher is already opening up about the death of his ex girlfriend Brittany Murphy, insisting the world "lost a little piece of sunshine.

Kutcher -- who famously dated Murphy in 2002 when they starred in "Just Married" together -- tweeted, "2day the world lost a little piece of sunshine. My deepest condolences go out to Brittany's family, her husband, and her amazing mother Sharon."

Kutcher added, "See you on the other side kid."

What a shame. Ms. Murphy was sure to have quite a few more years of character parts to offer. Always liked her to some capacity.

Re: Brittany Murphy dead at 32

I haven't read anything about drug overdose. Is that just speculation?

It's sad either way. She was no Heath Ledger but she might've had a comeback in her.

... yes, but a rather safe one at that. 32 year olds don't usually die of natural heart attacks.

Could have been an undiagnosed heart condition. Anything is up in the air at this time.

Far too young.

They were just making fun of here on the Weekend Update segment of SNL a few weeks ago (when she was fired from that film she was in)

Heart disease is the number one killer among women.

Very sad to heard of her death at age of 32 and close to X-mas.

Kutcher added, "See you on the other side kid."

What an empty, meaningless phrase. Quite the theologian that Ashton... about on par with the acting.

It's always possible, but the evidence strongly suggests that this is a train wreck of a human being who basically killed herself with drugs. I feel bad for her loved ones, at least for those who were not complicit in her demise.

My friends and I watched it and made fun of the whole thing, including her. I think we may have killed her.

Or you know, it could have been a phrase that had particular meaning to them as part of their history/relationship.
