]]>Kathy writes of her friend: “Brittany Murphy was like no other. A bright light. Never a mean or judgmental word, wildly fun, silly, loyal friend. Sweet, funny, smart, unbelievably talented actress and singer. Brilliant, moving body of work. I was lucky enough to know, love and work with her for 15 years. Love to her family and the many many people who adored her and were touched by her. We hope that in honor of her life and in the reflection of her glorious light, the pressures that girls and women face, will fade. Her spirit still soars.”
Actress Kathy Najimy was Brittany Murphy’s costar on the long-running Fox animated series “King of the Hill.” She has now released a statement about the sad death of her friend.
As “Hill” fans know, Brittany did the voice of the beloved character, Luanne.
An autopsy is underway to determine the cause of Brittany’s death. But results are not expected for a few weeks.
