SO sad :( I LOVED her in "clueless", "uptown girls", and "little black book". She did look SO thin in the past few years I couldn't help but wonder if she had an ED. Either way...the whole thing is just tragic :(

I'm soo sad. I really liked her acting and I loved her in Riding in cars with boys. Everyone in high school said I looked like her (random fact).

How devastating :(

"Love & Other Disasters" is one of my favorite movies. She was so talented; what a shame.

Yes, she was very talented and I loved her in Clueless. She got really, really skinny--so I wouldn't be surprised if an ED was a factor. Her natural body shape was not to be that skinny. She looked really bad in recent pics that I saw. It's a sad thing. Sometimes young people do die of heart disease, but in her case I think other factors may well have played a part.

I think her husband was rushed to the hospital not that long ago, too, for some reason.

Being a successful actor has to be included as one of the risk factors for various health problems. IMO, of course.

I'm thinking it was eating disorder related. How sad.

I forgot to include King of the Hill. She always cracked me up in that.

Yes, I am thinking drugs, eating disorder or both. If it's drugs, they'll find them but in case of an eating disorder they may find nothing specific.

ETA-from her bio. I didn't know this:

Family
Father: Angelo Bertolotti. an Italian American racketeering criminal; has had little contact with her father since her parents divorced

Wow, her poor family.

It does sound like something was up with her, though--she's looked unhealthy for the past few years.

Officially it was stated he had an asthmatic crisis.

I'm surprised of the news, she was a nice actress.

I'm thinking drugs too. Or anorexia, considering how frighteningly thin she looked in recent years. But such a shame. She was talented and seemed like a pleasant person. :(

I was thinking the same thing. Drugs or eating disorder, or a combination of both. How sad. She really was a talented actress. But, in addition she was someone's daughter, sister (?), friend, what a loss.


Was this really necessary? Can't we just be sorry that the poor girl passed away?

I'm not sure if what you are objecting to is discussion of how she may have died. I don't like to see other's misfortunes and people's passing turned into entertainment. But if she did die from an eating disorder and/or drug use, one can hope that maybe she could save someone else, in her situation.

So young, so sad :(.

So devastating! I will really miss her! It's so sad to think she may be another Hollywood cautionary tale though we still don't know all the details yet. She did seem very troubled the past couple of years. :( I think I may have a Brittany Murphy marathon now . . . I feel like I have every movie she acted in. She was so talented and I was a fan of her work. I'm totally in a bad mood now. :(

I understand how overedge feels; some people are sensitive to talk like that. But yeah, obviously as a celeb/public figure, people are going to be interested in how she died.
