'''Brittany Murphy''' (November 10, 1977 -- December 20, 2009) was an American actress, singer and voice over artist. Mostly known for playing [[BrainlessBeauty pretty]], perky, adorably [[TheDitz ditzy]] girls in films like ''Film/{{Clueless}}'' and ''Uptown Girls'', she also showed skill in playing damaged characters in more serious fare such as ''Film/GirlInterrupted'' and the indie film ''Film/TheDeadGirl''.

Probably Brittany Murphy's longest lasting role was as the voice of Luanne Platter in the long-running animated comedy ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' (she also voiced [[CrossdressingVoices Joseph Gribble]] until the season five episode "I Don't Wanna Wait..." in which Joseph goes through puberty and his pubescent voice is provided by Breckin Meyer). She also did voice work in animated penguin musical ''WesternAnimation/HappyFeet'' and the ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' movie ''The Beast with a Billion Backs'' [[spoiler:[[HarsherInHindsight which, sadly, ended with her character "leaving Earth for heaven"]]]].

As a singer, she collaborated with Paul Oakenfold on the 2006 single 'Faster Kill Pussycat' and also sung as part of her role in the aforementioned ''HappyFeet''.

She passed away unexpectedly at the age of 32 on Sunday, December 20, 2009, of pneumonia with secondary iron-deficiency anemia and multiple drug intoxication, which caused her to go into full cardiac arrest while she was in her shower. The mold in her house was originally said to be the cause of her death, but that's since been debunked. Tragically, her husband also passed away five months after her death. Recently, Murphy's father, Angelo Bertolotti, had her hair tested by an independent lab, which concluded that the hair contained unusually high levels of heavy metals and thus she was likely deliberately poisoned. Murphy's mother says [[http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/gossip/la-et-mg-brittany-murphy-mother-rejects-poison-claim-20131125-story.html#axzz2ljkUi58q the idea that her daughter was poisoned is "absurd"]], pointed out that "benign products such as hair dye or foods could cause a similar buildup", and said that she found it disgusting that Murphy's father [[http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/brittany-murphys-mother-breaks-silence-659529 only seemed to care about her after she became famous and after her death]]. It has since been revealed that "hair analysis is typically not used as evidence unless it is supported by blood and tissue tests, which Bartoletti did not have done and which the coroner didn't see fit to have done for heavy-metal poisoning".

''Something Wicked'', her final movie, was released in April 2014.

* DyeHard: Is best known as a blonde but was a natural brunette.
* DyeingForYourArt
* FakeNationality: Played a Polish Jew in ''TheDevilsArithmetic'' - one of her more underrated roles.



* WhatCouldHaveBeen: She was going to be the voice of ''[[Franchise/DisneyFairies Tinker Bell]]'', but either got fired or dropped out months before her death.
** She was also cast as Mickey Rourke's girlfriend in ''TheExpendables'', but [[DeletedRole her role got cut from the film]] after script rewrites. Unlike Liam Hemsworth (who got the same treatment), she didn't get to be in the sequel due to her untimely demise.
** She was also an early consideration to play Sidney Prescott in the {{Scream}} horror film franchise. Had she been cast, her death would have seriously affected the fourth film (had it even been made at all).
