Brittany Murphy

Brittany Murphy Brittany Murphy (full name Brittany Anne Murphy; name before marriage Brittany Bertolotti) was born on November 10, 1977 in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. She is an American actress and singer.

Biography and Career :

Murphy's parents divorced shortly after her birth, and she was raised in Edison, New Jersey and Burbank, California by her single, working-class mother; she has had little contact with her father since the divorce. Murphy was raised a Baptist and remains a practicing Christian.

She landed her first job in Hollywood when she was fourteen, starring as Brenda Drexell in the television series Drexell's Class. She then went on to play Molly Morgan in the short lived The Torkelson's spinoff Almost Home.

Brittany Murphy was also the lead singer of the band Blessed With So ul in the early 1990s, and was at one time signed on to play late singer Janis Joplin in a biography, but the film was not made because of legal disputes over music rights.

She has since starred in many successful films, including Clueless (1995), 8 Mile (2002) and Uptown Girls (2003) as well as many lesser known films, such as Spun (2003). She has also appeared on several television series, including Sister, Sister, Boy Meets World and as the voice of Luanne Platter on the long-running animated series King of the Hill.

Brittany Murphy most recently appeared in the films Little Black Book (2004), which was considered a critical and commercial failure, and the critically acclaimed Sin City (2005).

In the Spring of 2006, Paul Oakenfold along with Brittany Murphy released the single "Faster Kill Pussycat", with the album A Lively Mind to be released June 6 in the United States. The song has become a club hit, and hit number one on Billboard magazine's Hot Dance Club Play chart. It also hit number seven in the UK singles chart in June 2006.

Trivia :

- Has dated actor Ashton Kutcher and was engaged to talent manager Jeff Kwatinetz in 2004.
- In the early 90s, she was the lead singer in her band, called "Blessed Soul".
- Her mom, Sharon, is a survivor of breast cancer.
- Her date to the high school prom was Jonathan Brandis of "SeaQuest DSV" (1993) fame.
- Height : 5'3"/160 cm
- One of her first jobs was for a commercial for Skittles.
- Sang in the opening act at the 2002 MTV Movie awards.

Quotes :

- "I think they should take everyone who works for The National Enquirer and the Star, and everyone who works for Us Weekly, and put them all to work looking for terrorists. I think they would find the terrorists. All of them. It would be genius!"

- "I dont read the script a zillion times, I don't like to analyze things and my mind can go there very easily."

- "I've always seen myself as one of those 'show people.' My earliest memories are wanting and needing to entertain people, like a gypsy traveler who goes from place to place, city to city, performing for audiences and reaching people."
