for many girls who grew up in the 90s, "clueless" was the movie that changed their life. how can they not be affected by the death of brittany murphy? she was the freak tai taken in by the popular (albeit nice) girls in school and given a physical and social makeover. in real life, she went through something similar because once out of character, one could no longer recognizer her. she lost a lot of weight, dyed her hair blonde, underwent a little "tweaking," and groomed her look with clean makeup and stylish clothes. gone too soon.
brittany murphy died of cardiac arrest last december 20. she was 32.
