Brittany Murphy, the actress who starred in 8 Mile, Clueless and Uptown Girls died this morning from a fatal heart attack. She was 32.

TMZ reports that the Los Angeles Fired department received a call this morning from Murphy’s husband; Murphy was transported to Cedars Sinai and pronounced dead at the scene.

Murphy, whose career has floundered in recent years, had recently had something of a comeback in the making — she’s got three films completed, including Sylvester Stallone’s The Expendables. Most recently, she starred in Ramen Girl, Deadline and Across the Hall. She, of course, had her break-out role in 1995’s Clueless, but in recent years, she was perhaps most popular for her voice work on “King of the Hill,” and Happy Feet.
