Brittany Murphy, the actress who got her start in the sleeper hit "Clueless" and rose to stardom in "8 Mile," has died in Los Angeles. She was 32.

 

Cedars-Sinai Medical Center Spokeswoman Sally Stewart said Murphy died at 10:04 a.m. Sunday. She would not provide a cause of death, or any other information.

 

The Los Angeles Fire Department responded to a call at 8 a.m. Sunday from a home that is listed as belonging to British screenwriter Simon Monjack, who is married to Murphy, spokesman Devon Gale said. Gale said one person was transported to a hospital.

 

Messages left for Murphy's manager, agent and publicist by The Associated Press weren't immediately returned.

 

Born Nov. 10, 1977 in Atlanta, Murphy grew up in New Jersey and later moved with her mother to Los Angeles to pursue acting.

 

Her career started in the early 1990s with small roles in television series, commercials and movies. She is best known for parts in "Girl, Interrupted," "Clueless" and "8 Mile."

 

Her on-screen roles declined in recent years, but Murphy's voice gave life to numerous animated characters, including Luanne Platter on more than 200 episodes of Fox's "King of the Hill" and Gloria the penguin in "Happy Feet."

 

She is due to appear in Sylvester Stallone's upcoming film, "The Expendables," set for release next year.

 

Her role in "8 Mile" led to more recognition, Murphy told The Associated Press in 2003. "That changed a lot," she said. "That was the difference between people knowing my first and last name as opposed to not."

 

Murphy credited her mother, Sharon, with being a key to her success.

 

"When I asked my mom to move to California, she sold everything and moved out here for me," Murphy told the AP in 2003. "I was really grateful to have grown up in an environment that was conducive to creating and didn't stifle any of that. She always believed in me."

 

She dated Ashton Kutcher, who costarred with Murphy in 2003's romantic comedy "Just Married."

 

Kutcher tweeted Sunday morning about Murphy's death: "2day the world lost a little piece of sunshine," Kutcher wrote. "My deepest condolences go out 2 Brittany's family, her husband, & her amazing mother Sharon."

In a tragic turn of events, Brittany Murphy has died at the age of 32. The actress went into cardiac arrest early Sunday morning in LA, and, despite being rushed to hospital, she was dead on arrival.

 

Murphy had her big film break at the age of 18 in Clueless. She appeared as Tai, one of the bubbly sidekicks to Alicia Silverstone's Cher.

 

From there, she scored small roles in the likes of Drop Dead Gorgeous and Drive, before winning some kudos for her performance in Girl, Interrupted.

 

Bigger parts followed, including leads in Cherry Falls, Don't Say A Word and an emotional turn alongside rapper Eminem in 8 Mile.

 

More recently, she appeared in Just Married with then-boyfriend Ashton Kutcher and Uptown Girls with Dakota Fanning.

 

She played Shellie for Robert Rodriguez in Sin City and also voiced Gloria in Happy Feet. But it was another voice-over role, that of Luanne in TV's King Of The Hill, for which many will remember her.

 

The actress has several films awaiting release, most notably The Expendables. She's survived by husband Simon Monjack.

"2day the world lost a little piece of sunshine," Kutcher wrote. "My deepest condolences go out 2 Brittany's family"

 

Two thoughts - 1) A tragic death at age 32, and 2) What kind of moron doesn't have the common courtesy to comment on a person's death in proper English rather than idiotspeak? "2day?????" That guy is a fucking lamebrain.

Strange coincidence. -_- I just saw "Sin City" on TV last night.

 

Way too young to die ... R.I.P., Brittany
