BRITTANY Murphy is best known for playing fresh-faced teenager Tia in the hit ’90s classic, Clueless.
Her life was tragically cut short at 32, with the 2021 documentary What Happened, Brittany Murphy? delves into the unsettling details of the actress’ final days.
What was Brittany Murphy’s cause of death?
Brittany was found dead at her house in Los Angeles on December 20, 2009.
The Los Angeles coroner ruled that her death was caused by pneumonia, anemia and intoxication from taking prescription drugs.
In the documentary What Happened, Brittany Murphy? Makeup artist Trista Jordan – who worked with Brittany on her final film, Something Wicked – reflected on the actress’ unsettling appearance in her final months.
Trista said: ‘Her eyes were sunken, and she seemed very sad.
“She wasn’t herself. She was in a lot of pain. She had Bambi’s legs and couldn’t get up.”
The documentary was released on October 14, 2021, just two months before the 12th anniversary of Brittany’s untimely death.
She also starred opposite Michael Douglas in 2001’s Don’t Say A Word and appeared with Eminem in 8 Mile, for which she received critical acclaim.
Did Brittany Murphy have a baby?
Brittany was childless during her lifetime.
The actress has had a number of famous relationships but has never had a child of her own.
In late 2002, she began dating Ashton Kutcher, her Just Married co-star.
In December 2005, she became engaged to Joe Macaluso, a production assistant she met while making Little Black Book.
In August 2006, they ended their engagement.
Who is Brittany Murphy’s husband?
Simon Monjack is an English screenwriter, film director and film producer.
He married Simone Bienne in 2001, but they divorced in 2006.
He was married to his second wife, Brittany Murphy, from 2007 until her death on December 20, 2009, at the age of 32.
He was found dead just five months later on May 23, 2010, in his Hollywood home, according to the Los Angeles County coroner’s office.
The coroner’s report found his cause of death was acute pneumonia and severe anemia, similar to what is believed to have caused his wife Brittany to die in the same house.
New HBO documentary claimed he “cheated” on the actress before her sudden death.
Director Cynthia Hill confirmed Brittany was one of Simon’s “ultimate victims”.
She said: “He was a disturbed man who was used to fooling people and Brittany was one of his ultimate victims.
“There’s a pattern of behavior that becomes very clear as we do more research.”
Monjack is said to have had two secret children.
His daughter, Jasmine, was raised in Luton, United Kingdom, by her mother, Marcia Newman.
