    Brittany Murphy died early this morning after she went into full cardiac arrest and could not be revived, multiple sources tell TMZ.

    She was 32.

    A 911 call was made at 8:00 AM from a home in Los Angeles that is listed as belonging to her husband, Simon Monjack, the Los Angeles City Fire Department tells TMZ.

    We're told Murphy was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center where she was pronounced dead on arrival.

    Murphy starred in such films as "Clueless," "8 Mile," and "Don't Say a Word."

    You serious? I loved her.... she was an amazing actress & was great in all her movies.... i can't believe this... she's only young, why is everyone dropping off like flies these days... i wonder if it was anything to do with alcahol?

    Have to say this is quite a shock, thanks for posting Steph... me gonna look on news see if there is much more on her death.

    Anyway another great person who had a great career as far as i know... loved her movie "Don't Say a word" & "Just Married" 2 of the best films she was ever in for me.

    R.I.P Brittanny.

    UPDATE


    Brittany Murphy was ill with flu-like symptoms in the days before her death, the Los Angeles coroner's office said.

    The 32-year-old star of films such as "Clueless" and "8 Mile" died Sunday morning after collapsing at her Hollywood Hills home.

    Paramedics tried to revive her, but she was pronounced dead at Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre. Police said there was no evidence of foul play.

    The coroner's office said prescription medications were taken from her home.

    Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter said they will conduct a post-mortem examination to try to determine what killed the actress, and said her death appeared to be from natural causes. He said the illness, reported to officials by her family, could have contributed to her death, but it will be weeks before a final determination is made.

    Toxicology tests will be performed, and officials will contact her personal physician to get a better sense of Murphy's medical history, Winter said.

    Neighbour Clare Staples said she saw firefighters working to resuscitate the actress who was on a stretcher.

    Murphy's husband, wearing pyjama bottoms and no shoes, appeared "dazed" as firefighters tried to save her, Staples said. "It's just tragic," she added.

    Police investigators went to Murphy's home to launch a standard death investigation. Detective Wendi Berndt, who supervises the Los Angeles Police Department's homicide unit in Hollywood, said there was nothing to indicate suspicious activity.
