ON THE 20TH of this month, we’ll reach the eighth anniversary of the sudden and tragic death of actress Brittany Murphy.

Murphy played so many diverse roles that she still doesn’t get enough credit for. She died at the age of 32, but still managed to squeeze all of this work (and lots more, tbh) into her career.

1. She gave us this brilliantly hilarious (but far too real) scene in Riding In Cars With Boys.

2. She broke everybody’s heart when she played Daisy Randone in Girl, Interrupted.

It’s impossible not to think of her every time you hear The End of the World by Skeeter Davis.
