Marvelous Girl Has Moved!

Brittany Murphy was struggling with poor body image

Posted on: December 21, 2009

Since her passing yesterday from cardiac arrest, actress Brittany Murphy’s friends are beginning to speak out about her struggle with a poor body image. 

Clueless director Amy Heckerling believes the problem may have originated from the set of their film:

“She seemed to go through a change on Clueless. Maybe she felt like she was not the, like, skinny, pretty girl, you know? And then the next few movies she was, you know, thinner, blonde … going out with Eminem and Ashton Kutcher.”

Another source said:

“A lot of her problems were due to poor self-image. She wore extraordinary amounts of makeup, tons of fake eyelashes, got her teeth capped, dyed her hair blonde, lost weight – she wanted to be a beauty. She didn’t want to be the fat girl from Clueless. She didn’t eat a lot. She would drink copious amounts of coffee.”

32-year-old Murphy was rumored to have troubles with drug abuse and eating disorders.  The authorities found several prescription medications in the actress’ home and she had been suffering from flu-like symptoms in the days leading up to her death. 

Murphy’s body is currently undergoing an autopsy, against the wishes of her husband Simon Monjack.  The autopsy will take four to eight weeks for toxicology results to come back with a final cause of death.

Calling her the “fat girl from Clueless”? I think this article is part of the problem.
