Brittany Murphy Height and Weight Stats

Brittany Murphy was born November 10, 1977, in Atlanta, Georgia.  Murphy’s father was heavily involved in organized crime, and spent most of his life in and out of prison. As a result, Murphy’s parents split when she was only two years old. Murphy and her mother moved to Edison, New Jersey, shortly after the divorce. It was during this time that Murphy became interested in acting and performing.

By the time Murphy was eight, she had determined that she wanted to be a star. When Murphy was 12, her mother finally relented. Almost immediately, Murphy began landing jobs for television commercials. From there, she began making brief appearances on sitcoms such as Murphy Brown and Boy Meets World. Elated by her success, Murphy and her mother relocated to Los Angeles in 1991, when the actress was 14 years old, in order to further Murphy’s acting career. She got her big break in TV that same year, as a regular on the Fox sitcom Drexell’s Class (1991). In 1995, Murphy entered the national spotlight in the popular film Clueless.  After the success of Clueless, Murphy was offered a series of critically acclaimed film roles, including starring roles in Girl, Interrupted (1999) with Winona Ryder and Angelina Jolie; 8 Mile (2002) with rapper Eminem; and Sin City (2005).

Shortly after the news that she had lost the job due to her poor attitude and spotty attendance on set, Murphy died on December 20, 2009. Initially reported as a heart attack, her death was later attributed to acute pneumonia and severe anemia. The actress was only 32 years old. Her husband died five months later.
