R.I.P. Brittany Murphy 1977-2009

Brittany MurphyDon’t worry.  I am not posting this to make a shameless plug to capitalize on Brittany Murphy Blu-ray sales, but instead I simply wanted to express my condolences for Hollywood’s loss of a much-adored actress on Sunday.  Brittany may not have been a favorite of mine, but I always respected her for her talent and unique acting style that lent itself well to the vicious tales told in one of my most revered films of all-time, Sin City.  Although she has starred in nearly forty movies in her short career, for some reason I will always remember her most from that scene between her and Eminem in 8 Mile.  Geez.  I wonder why?

Anyway, I am sure you heard the whole ordeal already about her passing away from cardiac arrest at the tender young age of only 32, so I won’t be repetitive.  I simply wanted to show my respect to an actress that will be immensely missed by her fans.  Much to my surprise, today I learned that she will be appearing in Slyvester Stallone’s The Expendables next August.  So the world will get one more glimpse of her surrounded by an all-star cast of nostalgic action heroes.  I cannot wait! 

Ashton Kutcher, who once was romantically linked to the actress, had the following to say about her today on Twitter.   “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 conclusion, I wanted to share a few pictures below of the talented actress from my favorite role of hers as Shellie in 2005’s Sin City.  Rest in peace Brittany.  We will miss you.

ONE HECK OF A PROMOTER!!! Also a Dreamer, Producer, Agent of Love, Film Lover, Writer of Screenplays and a Devoted Apostle to all things Ford Mustangs (the real ones with V8's!). Some of my favorite films include FIGHT CLUB, MOULIN ROUGE, THE DARK KNIGHT, STAR WARS alongside television shows such as SEINFELD, 24, SANFORD & SON and even the often loathed in the geek community BIG BANG THEORY. Outside of my three lives I live I also enjoy spending time with my girlfriend and our three girls (of the furry kind).
