Report: Brittany Murphy Has Died at 32
Star of 'Clueless' and '8 Mile' Suffered a Cardiac Arrest
Brittany Murphy has died, according to the gossip Web site TMZ.com.
The actress was 32 and went into full cardiac arrest, sources told the Web site.
The Los Angeles Fire Department said they received a 911 call from a home in Los Angeles that belonged to Murphy's husband Simon Monjack, the site reported.
The star of "Clueless" and "8 Mile" was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center where she was pronounced dead on arrival, according to TMZ.
Murphy got her first job in Hollywood at the age of 14, when she starred as Brenda Drexell in the series "Drexel's Class."
She then went on to guest star on television series such as "Blossom" and "Frasier."
One of her most notable roles was in "Clueless," in which she starred opposite Alicia Silverstone as the bubbly, yet naive high school student Tai Frasier eager for a makeover.
She also co-starred with Angelina Jolie in "Girl, Interrupted" and Eminem in "8 Mile."
Most recently she starred in the romantic comedy "Little Black Book" and "Sin City." Lifetime cast her in a TV movie in 2009 where she played the main character in "Tribute."
She also dabbled in music. In 2006, Murphy teamed up with the world-famous DJ Paul Oakenfold. The pair released a single "Faster Kill Pussycat" which became a club hit and hit number one on Billboard's Hot Dance Club Play chart.
Murphy was reportedly fired from a movie she was working on in Puerto Rico last month. Perez Hilton reported that the actress "apparently ... has a habit of being difficult on the set."
