RIP Brittany Murphy

The late Brittany Murphy is asked to remove her shoes in the movie Uptown Girls.

Thanks go to Sandro for pointing this one out.

Funnily enough, I mentioned another Brittanny Murphy film on this blog a while ago, Ramen Girl.

having re-watched it, I must say though no reluctance but some momentary embarrassment/confusion/surprise is shown by Molly, Brittany's character, when she hears the little girl's "Shoes!" and for second is looking at her sandals before starting to take them off. Is it because the word "shoes!" was too loud? or unexpected? I don't know

Ms. Murphy's death was one of the ones that happened in 2009, right? Is it just me, or was that a bad year to be a celebrity (given the many deaths that happened amongst them)? 2010 hasn't been much easier on them either. For instance, earlier this month, J.D. Salinger, whose book 'Nine Stories' I had referenced a couple of times in previous comments, died.

Speaking of celebrity deaths, there's an adult-oriented animated series called 'South Park'. One of the more frequent characters is a grade-school-age Jewish kid named Kyle. In one of the more recent episodes, his younger (adopted) brother Ike (who, as it was revealed in one of the earlier seasons of that show, is Canadian) keeps seeing ghosts of recently dead celebrities (Micheal Jackson, Farrah Fawcett, to name a few). In therapy, Ike even says, "I see dead celebrities." (This is a satire of the movie "Sixth Sense" where a boy claims he sees dead people who don't realize they are dead.) But I think that episode was made before Murphy's death though. I don't remember right off. I will say this, I don't think I saw her death coming.

MM, I suppose none of us should be fooled into thinking that celebrity life is easy.

Sandro, saying 'shoes!' as a way of requesting shoe removal is a bit rude.

I remember seeing a police drama where a police officer said 'shoes!' to a criminal who was being booked into the cells and had to remove his shoes.

I think it is okay to say 'shoes!' to a close friend who ought to remember that you have a shoes-off policy.

I agree
