I will be the first to admit that Brittany Murphy was not a constant blip on my Hollywood-related radar. I'm probably most familiar with Brittany Murphy's acting career through her voice-over work as Luanne Platter on King of the Hill. I always found Luanne to be one of the funnier characters on that show. Of all her movies, I've probably only seen one all the way through. Clueless. That's not to say I couldn't sit through any of her movies, that's just how it is. However, due to her untimely death yesterday (apparently due to cardiac arrest), I've re-watched some clips from Clueless. I think they display not only how funny of a person she probably was, but she was a pretty adorable person, too.
A friend of mine died from cardiac arrest when I was in my early teens. It was an incredibly shocking and difficult type of death to deal with as there were no symptoms or warnings beforehand & no way of stopping it once it started. My heart goes out to Brittany Murphy's family & friends.
