A DAY IN THE LIFE OF BRITTANY MURPHY
Happy Feet, the animated penguin movie, held a press junket at the Beverly Regent Hotel and Brittany Murphy showed up as a last minute surprise. Brittany arrived looking “shockingly emaciated” but she was bubbly and sweet to all. A mountain of Loius Vuitton luggage followed her into her suite. Journalists from all over the country waited expectantly in the hall while Brittany prepared for her series of short interviews. Rack after rack of clothing were rolled into her suite, followed by “forty or fifty pairs of Jimmy Choo shoes.” Hairdressers with bags of hair, makeup people, PR people, and fashion stylists crowded in. Cigarette smoke wafted out of the room whenever the door was opened. Room service delivered coffee and a tray of petite peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with crusts cut off . An hour later when the tray was removed, there were only three tiny sandwich triangles eaten. Massive preparation meant that exhausted journalists waited HOURS for Brittany to appear, but when she did, she charmed them.
