Sad, sad news Sunday (Dec. 20) about the sudden death of adorable, giggly and squeaky-voiced actress Brittany Murphy
First reports were that she died this morning of cardiac arrest. But new information
indicates that may not have been the cause.
And now TMZ
is reporting that her husband Simon Monjack
doesn't want an autopsy performed, although one will be conducted on Monday anyway.
What on earth happened? She was only 32!
The actress was reportedly found unconscious by her mother in the shower early Sunday morning. Paramedics were
called but could not revive her and she was pronounced dead at
Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
Brittany has been out of the A-list Hollywood circles for a few years.
Her film career took off after her breakthrough in "Clueless." She also appeared in "Girl, Interrupted," with Angelina Jolie and Winona Ryder, "8 Mile High," "Uptown Girls," and even dated her "Just Married" co-star Ashton Kutcher (pre-Demi Moore) for about two years. She also made Maxim's Hot 100 list list in 2006 and we're sure you remember her from "Sin City."
