Young Hollywood actress Brittany Murphy died at a young age of 32 years on December 20th , 2009. The reason for her death is one of the series of Hollywood deaths that have made a great deal of controversy. These series of deaths were not made by murderers and assassins as in the movies but because of psychological factors that lead to these wealthy stars to become addicted to toxic drugs that end up taking their lives.
Brittany Murphy started in films like Clueless, Freeway, Bongwater , the Prophecy II, Drop Dead Gorgeous, Girl Interrupted, Uptown girls, Sin city and lately Abandoned which she will not see it when released.
She collapsed in her bathroom in her home shared with husband Simon Monjack. She was pronounced dead on arrival at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center . According to CNN and other news sources, documents written by Investigator Blacklock Brittany Murphy “had been complaining of shortness of breath and severe abdominal pain for 7 to 10 days prior to her death”. According to the notes, she was on dangerous mix of medications that included Topamax (anti-seizure meds also to prevent migraines),Methylprednisolone (anti-inflammatory), Fluoxetine (depression med), Klonopin (anxiety med),Carbamazepine (treats Diabetic symptoms and is also a bipolar med), Ativan (anxiety med), Vicoprofen(pain reliever), Propranolol (hypertension, used to prevent heart attacks), Biaxin (antibiotic), Hydrocodone(pain med) and miscellaneous vitamins.
It is human nature that one seeks fortune as his/her main goal …. but when reaching it , what is one’s goal??? Sustaining it ?? No, because all of these stars whether from Hollywood or music industry like Elvis Presley (42), Marilyn Monroe (36), John Belushi (33), Jimi Hendrix (27), Heath Ledger (28) and many many more all died young, famous and wealthy . So I think that the main problem is that wealth and stardom was too much for them. I think they started by addicting to alcohol which led them to drugs under the fuel of fame and wealth.
I think that when becoming a star whether in the sports, music, Hollywood, TV or other industries , a great burden is put upon you because you have achieved two main objectives by this time, wealth and fame. You then either have to identify a new objective or get wonder into a dark future. Otherwise a dangerous path of Alcohol and drug addiction will be taken to satisfy one’s mental mind. An example of new objectives that are considered in the green light and are actually practiced by many stars during their careers are : entering a business career , involvement in humanitarian activities or just retiring into a quiet life.
For young actors who just entered stardom , they should quickly identify a new objective that should be in parallel to their Hollywood careers because they will find in the near future plenty of free time that needs to be filled with useful activity to prevent oneself from sinking into a dangerous lifestyle full of Alcohol and drugs.
