Brittany Murphy, the acclaimed actress from such films as 8 Mile, Clueless, Riding in Cars With Boys, has died. She was only 32. She went into full cardiac arrest and passed away this morning.
Murphy was pronounced dead at 10:04 a.m. PT Sunday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, hospital spokeswoman Sally Stewart told CNN Radio. No other details were immediately available.
An autopsy had not been scheduled as of Sunday night, but a spokesman for the Los Angeles County coroner’s office told CNN that there was no sign of foul play or trauma. A final report on the cause of death could take up to eight weeks.
The Los Angeles Police Department is investigating the death, and robbery and homicide detectives will be at her home, LAPD spokeswoman Norma Eisenman said.
“In this time of sadness, the family thanks you for your love and support,” Murphy’s publicist, Nicole Perna, said in a statement. “It is their wish that you respect their privacy.”
She is survived by her husband, British screenwriter Simon Monjack, whom she married in 2007.
