Brittany Murphy (1977-2009)

From the "You Just Can Never Tell When Your Time Is Up" files, the sad and tragic passing of 32 year old actress Brittany Murphy, of apparent cardiac arrest.

It will be interesting to hear about the results of the autopsy report and what might have caused the heart attack in an otherwise apparently healthy young woman. Hopefully it's just a freak thing and it won't be a drug-abuse, or drug overdose induced death.

I always find it incredibly sad when I read about people dying who are younger than myself.

The movie I remember her most from was the excellent "Don't Say a Word" that she starred in with Michael Douglas in 2001. She will likely be best remembered for her voice-over work as Luanne Platter on "King of the Hill" from 1997-2009.

We haven't heard the last from Brittany, as she's got three films in post-production that are scheduled for release in 2010.

UPDATE: Here's a bit more on her death. According to this, her husband told the hospital that he didn't want them to do an autopsy but didn't give a reason. (Unusual request. What's he hiding? Ooh, answers to the official cause of death questions just got more interesting.) The LA County Coroner's Office is going to do an autopsy anyway, which they should due to her age.

2/4/10 UPDATE: Pneumonia, drugs killed Brittany Murphy. Death ruled accidental.

when i hear 'cardiac arrest' and 'actress in his/her 30s' my first thought is always drug overdose.

The sad thing is this happens enough that I've developed a 'rule' about it.

mine too. Like I said, I hope it's not the case but we'll see when the autopsy results are released in a few weeks.

What is your 'rule'?
