Sexy Brittany Murphy Wallpapers: A Tribute

This is a tribute to Brittany Murphy died on December 20, 2009. She had apparently collapsed in a bathroom. Firefighters attempted to resuscitate Murphy on the scene and she was subsequently transported to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead on arrival at 10:04 a.m. after going into cardiac arrest. In 2006, Murphy was voted 36th in FHM’s 100 Sexiest Women List, and in May of the same year, Maxim named Murphy #49 on its annual Hot 100 List. I personally enjoyed her role in Girl, Interrupted (1999) and Sin City (2005). So as a tribute, I compiled some of her sexiest wallpapers. Just click on the picture to get the full size.
