I seriously cannot even believe I'm typing this sentence. Brittany Murphy, star of one of my favorite movies ever made... a movie I can literally recite word for word at a moment's notice (that is not an exaggeration) "Clueless" has died at age 32 due to an believed cardiac arrest. I've been out all day and my bestie told me and my jaw was literally unhinged for a full minute. I am stunned and incredibly saddened by her death.
Not only did I love "Clueless," but her turn in "Girl, Interrupted" was completely award worthy. To top it off, I never have ever seen a single bad interview with a poor attitude with Murphy. She was always bright and bubbly and seemed to be a very warm soul. I know it's also limiting to say, but she was Tai! She was that pretty girl in an awkward shell that we could all relate to. In another actresses' hands, it may have seemed weird that Cher would have taken Tai under her wing, but with Murphy in the part, you understood why. She was like a friend in your head.
It's so sad that she's gone. Enjoy the brief clip above and tell me, what's your favorite Murphy moment? There are more than you think...
