Clearly, sorayanala got that feeling from the MANY comments about Brittany suggesting that she had an eating disorder, did drugs, etc. It seems a LOT of people actually want her "messy appearance" to be related to her health and are entertained by the fact that she looks terrible.
It's quite sad, and disgusting, in fact - that people want to relate the way she looks in this movie to whatever health conditions she may have had. In my opinion, I think she was purposely made to look the way she does in the film. Whether or not her husband, Simon, made her look ridiculous with the bad makeup and hair - I think she was purposely made to look the way she does in the film for her character's purpose..
All I know is, this film wouldn't survive without the likes of Brittany Murphy. Everyone else's acting is terrible, but her charm is what's keeping me from changing the channel.
Watching it now. Sorry, but in real life when people look like hell then there is usually a reason for it!!
Watched it on Lifetime this afternoon...at first was shocked at her appearance, and then it became clear it was part of the movie plot.
The girl did crazy quite well, didn't she? RIP.
How DARE YOU say we are "entertained" by her tragedy. wtf is wrong with YOU.
With 20/20 hindsight.
Yes, her makeup appearance in this movie is disheveled. This is for this movie.
But, Why don't you go look at other picture of her during this time. You know, the ones that don't relate to this movie. People suspected she had an eating disorder, did drugs etc for a reason. She LOOKED like she did. Unfor, she might have been dying.
