Brittany Murphy has always been a performer. As a two-year-old tot, she put on little shows for her parents. When she was a student at Herbert Hoover Middle School in Edison, New Jersey, she sang in Les Miserables. By the time she was thirteen, she had moved to Los Angeles and was taping commercials and starring in sitcoms. Brittany got her first break in the movies at age eighteen playing Tai in Clueless, and she has never looked back. With over 60 movie and television credits to her name, Brittany believes that the love and support she receives from her mother not only helped her get a start in show business, it has also shaped her into one of the hardest working actors in Hollywood.
