Brittany Murphy dies aged 32

Monday December 21, 2009

Just Married and 8 Mile star Brittany Murphy has died at the age of 32 after collapsing at her LA home.

US reports state that the actress died of a cardiac arrest, and coroners say that she appeared to have died of natural causes.

She was taken to hospital after the Los Angeles Fire Department responded to a call at the Hollywood home she shared with her husband, British screenwriter Simon Monjack.

Her publicist has released a statement on behalf of her family.

"The sudden loss of our beloved Brittany is a terrible tragedy. She was our daughter, our wife, our love and a shining star. We ask you to respect our privacy at this time."
