    She was i believe a heavy smoker. Although still young for that to take it´s toll it does happen. I used to work with an attractive woman who li can tell you ooked like the picture of health and fitness. She didnt do drugs or drank much, she was though a heavy smoker since her teens. Dropped dead of a massive coronary at age 36! Smoking and heart disease. It´s funny everyone goes on about cocaine. Give cigarettes a chance and they can do you in as well as anything.

    I've known Brittany Murphy since I worked with her on Clueless and continued to be acquainted with her over the past several years. She is a lovely young woman, full of grace, kindness and was a ray of sunshine on every movie set or charity event that I've ever encountered with her. I'm deeply saddened and shocked by her death. I'm also angry at the insensitive comments left by some anonymous people accusing her of drug use. Brittany had health issues in the past with diabetes from my understanding, so I would please ask restraint before accusations. I would ask that people be respectful of the family, especially her fantastic mother, Sharon. My prayers go out to Brittany and her loved ones during this horrible tragedy. God bless you Brittany, you are already tremendously loved and missed. Respectfully, Cheryl Shuman Executive Director Beverly Hills NORML90210 http://www.NORML90210.org KUDOS to norm90210!! RIP Brittany.

    Very sad. It was surely due to anorexia and possibly drug use whether it was diet pills or other drugs to help suppress her appetite. She was definitely looking very unhealthy early this month, and as other reports have come to say, she wasn't in a very good state at all. It's really sad that so many women, her age and much younger, are literally dying for a "perfect" body. damn..............................u dont even know what really happened!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! u over here talking all this sh*t cum on know have more respect!!!!!!!!!!!
