Worst celebrity year ever?

20 12 2009

Admit it, for all the griping we all do about the amount of coverage given to celebrities, you know you can’t help but reading about it or watching it on TV.
But seriously, what a kick in the gut it was today to read that actress Brittany Murphy died today at the ripe young age of 32.
If anything, 2009 has not been a great year for the rich and famous, whether they were young or old.
Think about it. The following is a partial list of notables who have died so far this year:
Ricardo Montalban, Andrew Wyeth, John Updike, Ron Silver, Marilyn Chambers, Bea Arthur, Jack Kemp, Dom DeLuise, Chuck Daly, David Carradine, Farrah Fawcett, Michael Jackson, Karl Malden, Walter Cronkite, Corazon Aquino, John Hughes, Eunice Kennedy Schriver, Les Paul, Ted Kennedy, Patrick Swayze, Eddie “Umaga” Fatu, Roy Disney, Chris Henry and now, Brittany Murphy.
That’s an awful lot of major notables to die in one year.
Murphy is being eulogized for her roles in “Clueless” and “8 Mile,” but I think her best performance was in “Sin City,” a fantastic movie that never got the credit it deserved.
Here’s clip of Murphy from the flick, in what is one of the finer scenes in cinematic history:
