‘Brittany Murphy, what happened?’ Shocking Revelations is a documentary about shocking revelations.
The documentary ‘What Happened, Brittany Murphy?’ premiered on HBO Max on Thursday, October 14 – fresh details from the film have emerged.
It’s been more than a decade since Brittany Murphy died at the age of 32, but her fans are still seeking answers about the circumstances that led up to her death.
What Happened, Brittany Murphy?, a new HBO Max documentary broadcast on Thursday, October 14, aims to throw some light on the late actress’s life through interviews with friends and coworkers who knew her well.
Marti Faulkner, a friend of the Murphy family, notes in the film, “Brittany never said a nasty thing about anybody, ever.” “She had a great sense of humour.” Director Cynthia Hill told Amy Heckerling, who directed the Georgia native in the 1995 hit Clueless, that the actress’ cheerful demeanor came out on camera. It was one of the reasons she chose Murphy, who was only 17 at the time, to play Tai.
“She just felt like a sweet girl who didn’t fit in with the others,” Heckerling, 67, adds. “She was just trying and being polite but, like, was lost in this environment.” “And that’s precisely what I’ve been looking for.” Though she was recognized for her parts in films such as Drop Dead Gorgeous, Sin City, and Girl, Interrupted, the Uptown Girls star’s career began to decline around the time she married Simon Monjack in May 2007. The majority of her latter jobs, with the exception of her voiceover work for King of the Hill, were in direct-to-video thrillers and horror films.
Several of the persons questioned in What Happened, Brittany Murphy? make it apparent that they believe Monjack was at least partially to responsible for the Just Married star’s fading career. (The London-born producer died five months after his wife in 2010.) Alex Merkin, who directed Murphy in Across the Hall, one of her final works, says, “I did start to feel some warning signals.” “There was something — I don’t want to say worshiping — about their connection that felt like it was on the verge of becoming that. It was something that felt absolutely unhealthy, and on some levels, ridiculous. “It was all a ruse on his part to keep her under his control and keep his hooks in her.” Murphy’s death was attributed to pneumonia by the Los Angeles County coroner, but her late father, Angelo Bertolotti, suspected that something more sinister was at work.
