I just read that Brittany Murphy died this morning at 32 after a cardiac arrest. It's so sad; I was a huge fan of her movies.

Los Angeles, California (CNN) -- Actress Brittany Murphy has died, Los Angeles police and hospital officials said Sunday. She was 32.

Murphy was pronounced dead at 10:04 a.m. PT Sunday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, hospital spokeswoman Sally Stewart told CNN Radio.

No other details were immediately available.

Murphy starred in several movies, including "Clueless," "Don't Say a Word," and "8 Mile." She also voiced the character Luanne on the animated TV series "King of the Hill."

"In this time of sadness, the family thanks you for your love and support," Murphy's publicist, Nicole Perna, said in a statement. "It is their wish that you respect their privacy."

Murphy is survived by her husband, Simon Monjack, whom she married in 2007.

I'll be honest. When I read she died, I did not feel any sympathy or pity. Well, the first thing that came to my mine was she was a Hollywood star, she's pretty, she got successful, and she got rich; but in the end, those things won't matter to her because she's dead. The dead couldn't no longer cherish the things she/he used to have, only the remaining live ones.

Sometimes you struggle so hard then you become successful... but unfortunately you died sooner than later.
However, it's best to struggle and do the things you're happy to do than doing nothing and just get old and feel only regrets.

When someone has a very expensive car get into an accident and that expensive car is impossible to be repaired to its top condition, I'm actually smiling. I did not wish for that person in that expensive car to get injured or die. My car is just in worst condition and ugly. In my mind, I'm just thinking, "hah! now, you have an ugly car too!! You got to spend more money to buy a new one." ;P
