Brittany Murphy's Final Film Is Completed

It took almost three years, but Brittany Murphy's final film, Something Wicked has finally been completed. I remember when she was making that movie and how there was so much going on in her life and she had made them hire her husband as her makeup artist and then of course she died while making the movie. As much as Brittany had a troubled life at least she could act. I was rarely disappointed in her movies. I wonder how good this one will be and whether they should have just left it alone instead of trying to edit her performance so it made sense with what she had already shot.

We miss you Brittany!

I really enjoyed Little Black Book. As cheesy as it was she was really funny in that.

So since it took them that long to finish it, it will be released?

I loved Uptown Girls with Dakota Fanning. I always forget that she's actually gone, and really enjoy pretty much everything she's done. It's too bad her mom wasn't a better influence when it came to Simon.

Usually, if your friends and family are telling you they don't like the person you're with because they're sketchy and don't treat you well, it's because the person is sketchy and doesn't treat you well - not because they're jealous.

uptown girls, just married & of course clueless -- love them all

Have you ever seen Marilyn Monroe's last/unfinished film, "Something's Got To Give"? They pieced it together and it's actually pretty good....she looks fantastic. Beautiful clothes, too.

She was fantastic in Girl, Interrupted.

ReesesPeace said...

I loved her in Girl, Interrupted. Rest in peace, baby.

EmEyeKay said...

I was disagreeing with Enty about her acting ability until @rejected reminded me about Girl, Interrupted.

Freaky: I had a dream about her last night. The French girl from AHS reminds me of her a little, so Brittany has been on my mind.

DBZee said...

Adored her in Clueless and Girl Interrupted. Sad that her life was so short.

That picture makes me think of one of the Olsen twins.

I loved her in her small role in Drop Dead Gorgeous. She was hilarious.

Girl Interrupted...rip brittany...

Em, congrats !! Need an elderly flower girl?

DixieTheNoble82 said...

Girl Interrupted & Clueless were my favorites of hers but I do think she really had great talent in everything she was in. I even named my cat 'Elton', but said as she says it in Clueless, in honor of her. RIP Brittany.

nancer said...

ironically, my favorite performance of hers is 'the dead girl.' she just broke my heart in that movie.
she was a good person and a very good actress who lost her way. i miss her---unlike some people i could name who i won't miss when they're gone.

EmEyeKay said...

Thanks, Agent! I'll keep you in mind :)

We're probably not going to go that route. We both don't want the white dress/ceremony deal. We don't want Vegas, or barefoot in Hawaii, either. It's a tough one, but I figure that we'll come across an idea that strikes us both sooner or later, and we're not in a rush.

Barton Fink said...

I still start to get teary-eyed when I think about her dying, the health issues, the bizarre immigration crap, the possible drug addiction stuff, etc. She was so beautiful. She lit up the screen when she was on her game. She was so beautiful.

Amber said...

@Em - I wanted to extend my congrats, as well! I read it way late in the day and figured I'd wait until I "saw" you again. What about a nice backyard bbq/luau/pig roast/garden party/etc, and have a friend officiate?

Seachica said...

Em, we need to chat. I'm in the same boat as you are. We are leaning toward something small at gasworks park

Alma said...

Wish you much happiness, Em! Loved your reader photo as well.

I want to see this but i hope it was done decently.

EmEyeKay said...

Thanks guys! Really, thank you - it's nice to keep getting the "best wishes", and I pass them all on to Thor/Future Mr. Kay. Thanks for the ideas, @Amber! I live on the beach, on Puget Sound, if we wait until the weather gets better we could do a nighttime bonfire kind of thing...

@Seachica, yes, let's - especially because your engagement story really struck me (I went to your tumblr, just beautiful) and I keep thinking about it. Idea: there's a small lighthouse in West Seattle, near Alki, it has a gorgeous view. I'll send you a link.

I'll get you an email address soon, okay?

AKM said...

Best wishes, EmEyeKay! I like Amber's idea, too. Simple, no stress, lovely. Should I ever get to have a wedding, I would do the same, I think.

And yeah, I see the "AHS" girl connection, too. I KNEW she reminded me of someone, but I just couldn't place it.

Baka Neko said...

My favorite if hers was ramen girl.

Jason Blue Eyes said...

LOVED LOVED LOVED Brittany. When you saw her name in a movie's credits you know that she was going to be the brightest element in it. She did Ed Burn's Sidewalks Of New York and there was no way you couldn't fall in love with her when you saw her in that. I had such a crush. That's the movie I always put in when I want to remember her at her most sexy, charming and lovely.

nessa said...

i tear up too. i was absolutely crushed the day she died. i vowed never to be such a big fan of any celebrities ever again :(

nessa said...

LOVED that movie!

Brenda L said...

RIP

iheartjacksparrow said...

My favorite is Dead Girl. That is such an awesome movie with incredible actors.

IDoTheRobot said...

Congrats Em! :)

Tampa Shawn said...

Gorgeous woman well missed. RIP.

EmEyeKay said...

Thanks, AKM & Robot! :)

The Little Woman said...

She could sing like no other, too. She was a talent.

Elementally said...

Newbie, here. No one has mentioned a GREAT Bad Movie called Freeway, with Reese Witherspoon. Brittany's turn as a scarred, mentally deficient? inmate stood out.You could pick her out in bit parts, even if you didn't know why, She just glowed. Miss her. RIP I hope in your next life you remeber the cost of "I'll do anything to be..."

Kraymond19 said...

I was thinking the same thing about her! Grace on AHS. And congrats, Em!

Kraymond19 said...

We were going to get married in Mendocino, but didn't work out. Gorgeous there!

Sherry said...

I haven't seen any of these movies you all are pointing out except for "...Interrupted ". I meed to watch them.

And congratulations again Em. Do it nearby (the lighthouse sounds perfect) and simply. Spend the $on a nice trip abroad. That's what I did and it was perfect.

Betty K said...

Ramen Girl got panned but I loved it. Brittany gets dumped living from her boyfriend while they are living in Japan. She decides to stay and be a ramen chef.

Loved it. Streams on Netflix

Cornbread said...

Elementally, Freeway truly is one of the great bad movies! Both Brittany and Reese were good in it. So is Drop Dead Gorgeous, which someone mentioned earlier.

She really was a talented girl. RIP.

Silkprint said...

She was so cute .
I remember thinking years ago "this girl is really going t bean excellent actress in her 40"s .. She already was good but I think she was going to be great . I really wish her last year of life wasn't so bad , with all the rumors and movie problems surfacing so that when she died people could just say "drugs" . when really , it wasn't drugs .

Silkprint said...

Well , her death wasn't drugs . Then her husband Simon dying like that 6 months later of the same damn thing ( I will NEVER get what she saw in him but I hope he made her happy and treated her good)
Does anyone live in tat house now??

Gabby said...

i'm pretty sure she died of a "mixture of so-called legal drugs" because her heart was beating so fast that it stopped. And I'm pretty sure Simon got her into all kinds of nasty stuff. I was very sad to hear that she died, but I can't say the same for him.

cinephreak said...

She was superb, absolutely loved her. I remember being so so sad when I found out she had died.

cinephreak said...

Oh and Freeway is probably one of my most favorite bad movies OF ALL TIME. Such a great cast for such a crap movie lol
