RIP Brittany Murphy

Actress Brittany Murphy died this morning after suffering a heart attack. She was 32. Reports say that a 911 call was placed at 8 am from a home in Los Angeles belonging to her husband, Simon Monjack. Murphy was in full cardiac arrest and was pronounced dead on arrival at Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre. Murphy's mother was said to have found her unconscious in the shower. 

The actress found fame playing Tai, the ditzy new girl, in the '90s cult classic Clueless. Murphy went on to enjoy leading roles in films like 8 Mile, Don't Say a Word, Just Married and Little Black Book. She recently made headlines for being fired off the set of her latest film. 

Since marrying Monjack in 2007, the actress has been plagued by rumors of drug abuse. Monjack is said to have stalled her once burgeoning career, leading bloggers like Perez Hilton to label him as controlling. Reports say that he is now strongly opposed to Cedars-Sinai performing an autopsy on his deceased wife. What is he trying to hide?

Hollywood has been buzzing about Murphy's untimely passing. Twitter has been flooded with messages about the deceased, even creating a trending topic in her honor. 

Ex-boyfriend and Just Married co-star Ashton Kutcher tweeted, "2day the world lost a little piece of sunshine. My deepest condolences go out 2 Brittany's family, her husband, & her amazing mother Sharon."

Jessica Simpson tweeted, "Brittany Murphy was an incredible ray of Light to so many people. Her smile was contagious. My prayers are with her family and loved ones."

Lindsay Lohan also took to Twitter to express her condolences. "My deepest condolences go out to all of Brittany Murphy's loved ones&may she rest in peace...She was a great talent w/a beautiful soul xo." Perez Hilton used his blog and Twitter to warn Lohan that if she is not careful, she end up like Murphy. 

Here's to hoping that 2010 fares better for Hollywood's young stars. RIP Brittany
