12.20.09 | RIP Brittany Murphy

A sad day in the world of entertainment today, as news broke of the passing of actress Brittany Murphy. Best known for her acting roles in such films as Just Married, Clueless, Girl, Interrupted, 8 Mile, and Sin City, she also showed us that she was a multi-faceted artist, lending her voice talents to television's King of the Hill, the animated film Happy Feet, and techno/dance artist Paul Oakenfold's 2006 hit Faster Kill Pussycat.

At 32 years old, she was clearly among American entertainment's budding young starlets, and she will be deeply missed. We at Bloodline would like to say that although her full potential may never be realized, her legacy will be forever felt through the power of her body of work and the love she passed to her family. Our thoughts and hearts are with them in this most difficult hour.
