BRITTANY Murphy’s death has been shrouded in mystery, even years after an autopsy was conducted.
A new documentary exploring the details of her life and death will be explored in What Happened, Brittany Murphy?
What were Brittany Murphy’s final words?
Brittany’s mother Sharon Murphy and late husband Simon Monjack confirmed on Larry King Live that the actress’ final words were: “I’m dying. I’m going to die. Mommy, I love you.”
The actress reportedly passed away shortly thereafter.
“Her eyes were not right,” Monjack said. “They were darting off left and right and center.”
Brittany’s former husband Monjack was known as an English screenwriter, film director, film producer and make-up artist prior to his death.
Like Murphy, he made headlines following his unexpected death at the age of 40.
Over the years, Monjack had written the films Factory Girl and Two Day, Nine Lives.
“He was a disturbed individual who was used to conning people and Brittany was one of his last victims,” director Cynthia Hill said via People.
“There was a pattern of behavior that became very obvious the more research that we did.”
What was Brittany Murphy’s cause of death?
Brittany was found dead at her home in Los Angeles on December 20, 2009.
The Los Angeles Coroner ruled her death was due to pneumonia, anemia and drug intoxication due to prescription pills.
In the new documentary What Happened, Brittany Murphy? make-up artist Trista Jordan – who worked with Brittany on her last film, 2009’s Something Wicked – reflected on the actress’ concerning appearance in her final months.
Trista said: “Her eyes were so sunken, and she just seemed so sad.
“She wasn’t herself. She was in so much pain. She had Bambi legs and couldn’t stand up.”
Brittany rose to fame in 90s classic Clueless alongside Alicia Silverstone and Paul Rudd.
She also starred alongside Michael Douglas in Don’t Say A Word in 2001 and Eminem in 8 Mile, for which she received critical acclaim.
How can I watch the Brittany Murphy documentary?
What Happened, Brittany Murphy? will hit screens on October 14, 2021.
The film will be available exclusively on HBO Max.
The documentary was produced by Blumhouse Television and will explore not only her death but the past of her husband.
