Brittany Murphy first came to the attention of film audiences as Tai, one of Alicia Silverstone's airhead friends, in the 1995 comedy Clueless. She has also played a resident at a mental institution (Girl, Interrupted), was cast opposite Eminem in 8 Mile, and was one of the lead voices (Gloria) in Happy Feet.

The star is said to have been taking prescription medication for flu-like symptoms before her death on Sunday, Dec. 20, at age 32. Murphy is said to have gone into full cardiac arrest by the time paramedics arrived at the scene to administer CPR.
