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.

Re: Brittany Murphy dead at 32

The only movie I've ever seen with her is Clueless & I don't even remember her in it. But about 5 years ago I met her (my girlfriend worked with her on some kind of lip-gloss promotion). She was very beautiful in-person & extremely nice, took pictures with us.

Re: Brittany Murphy dead at 32

Damn. Sad news.

I never figured she'd be a Dead Girl, but I'm usually Clueless as to how these kind of things happen, so I usually Don't Say a Word. She wasn't exactly Drop Dead Gorgeous, but she was cute in her own way, so I won't be doing any Happy Feet dance today. RIP Brittany.

Sad. Hopefully it's not drug related.

Quite the history.

I didn't know she was 32, thought she was younger.

FWIW, She was fired from a film a few days ago so who knows what is going on.

There was way too much effort put into that.

I don't know but it's pretty much certain it isn't of "natural causes" and some of it probably has to do with her jackass husband. Sad though, 32 is waaaay too young.

Holy shit.

I had heard she'd been seriously strung out for years... but wow.

No wonder she just got kicked off that film very recently, she must have been in the final death spiral.

Sigh, I have to trek to work now in the middle of a snowstorm to produce coverage. Hopefully we get more detail soon.

I just watched that movie Deadline that she was in, she looked pretty coked out. I'm sad but not surprised.
