Voice of Luanne in King Of The Hill

Actress Brittany Murphy – whose roles included voicing the character of Luanne in the animated comedy King Of The Hill – has died at the age of 32

She went into full cardiac arrest early Sunday morning and her husband, British screenwriter Simon Monjack, called for an ambulance. But she was pronounced dead upon arrival at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

The daughter of convicted mobster Angelo Bertolotti, Murphy’s career break came in 1995, when she landed the role of Tai in the Alicia Silverstone comedy Clueless.

She also starred in 8 Mile, Sin City and Happy Feet, in which she was the voice of Gloria the penguin.

Former boyfriend Ashton Kutcher  Twittered: ‘2day the world lost a little piece of sunshine. My deepest condolences go out 2 Brittany's family, her husband, & her amazing mother, Sharon.’
