R.I.P actress Brittany Murphy, 32

A report has been released this afternoon that "Clueless" star Brittany Murphy arrived DOA to Cedars-Sinai hospital this morning, having suffered a cardiac arrest and was unable to be resuscitated by paramedics. She was 32.

Brittany Murphy was born in Atlanta, Georgia and was raised in New York. When she turned 14, she landed her first acting role on television, a show called Drexel's Class. Appearances on Parker Lewis Can't Lose, Boy Meets World and Party of Five followed, until her big break came playing Ty in the 1995 Heckerling hit, "Clueless."

In the next 10 years, Brittany enjoyed great success, appearing opposite Angelina Jolie in "Girl, Interrupted" and then, Michael Douglas in"Don't Say a Word." Her last big screen hit, "Sin City" premiered in 2005, after which Murphy seemed to disappear below the radar taking voiceover work and straight-to-dvd roles.

In May 2007, Brittany married screenwriter Simon Monjack in an intimate private ceremony. The emergency call made this morning came from their home at 8am.

Brittany Murphy was a remarkable actress with a beautiful voice. Another young person gone too soon. My heart goes out to her husband and their family. Farewell, Miss Brittany. You'll be sorely missed.
