Actress Brittany Murphy died earlier today at the much too young age of 32. Murphy's acting highlights include the movies Clueless (a movie I never get tired of watching) and 8 Mile. Lately she's been doing voiceover work including the voice of Luanne Platter on King of the Hill and Gloria in Happy Feet, as well as some movies.

TMZ broke the news of the actress's death this morning. According to TMZ, a 911 call was made at 8 am from her home. She was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center where she was pronounced dead on arrival.The cause of death is being cited as cardiac arrest.

Here's what some moms in Newcomer's Club are saying about Murphy's death:


Jaden8505 says: So unexpected I can't even believe she's gone. She was a good actress and so funny. She will be missed. Life is short and there's no way of knowing what will happen tomorrow.

 bluelola says: She was a really good actress and so young.  How does a 32-year-old go into cardiac arrest?  Heart condition or the Hollywood lifestyle?  Either way, it is very very sad.

3babygirlsrock says: I just read that her mom kept saying she had a history of diabetes. The husband doesn't want an autopsy. Sorry my hubby is 32 and if he just up and died I would want to know why! So something smells fishy!!

missy2000 says: I will miss her. She was a super funny actress I loved her in Just Married!
