Clueless star Brittany Murphy died Sunday morning of cardiac arrest. She was 32.

Variety is reporting that Murphy's mother called 911 early Sunday morning after finding her unconcious in the shower at the home she shared with her husband of less than three years, screenwriter-producer Simon Monjack. The actress was pronounced dead upon arrival at Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
