Brittany Murphy Tribute – Quote of the Week : Spun (2002)

“The state took him away. It’s weird, cause stuff happens and you don’t really notice it while it’s happening… life is sort of passing by. I held him once. Yeah, he felt so nice in my arms. And then they took him away. And I’m gonna hold him again. I’m gonna hold him real tight. I’m gonna hold him so tight that no one can ever take him away from me ever again.”

Nikki (Brittany Murphy) reveals to fellow speed addict Ross (Jason Schwartzman) that she has a son in Jonas Akerlund’s Spun (2002).

Brittany Murphy died tragically today at the young age of 32. She had a talent some top performing actors do not – versatility. Brittany had the ability to drift from one genre to another, whether it was a romantic comedy – Just Married (2003), a horror film – Deadline (2009) or a comic book epic – Sin City (2005), she always had tremendous appeal on screen.

And let’s not forget her solid drama performances – Girl Interrupted (1999) she played the the role of a mentally disturbed person in an institution with Winona Ryder and Angelina Jolie, the promiscuous girlfriend of rapper Eminem in 8 Mile (2002) and of course a speed junkie alongside Mickey Rourke and John Leguizamo in Spun.

R.I.P. Brittany – your contagious smile is something we can only now visit by watching your movies once again… thank you for that gift.
