Movies / The Ashton Kutcher curse / Brittany Murphy (Just Married)

Brittany Murphy was another actress who broke into the mainstream during the decade of the teen movie, coming to the attention of audiences everywhere with her portrayal of airhead Tai Frasier in 1995's Clueless. Her first real taste of box office success came through a lead role in Eminem's semi-autobiographical drama 8 Mile some seven years later, though it all came undone when she starred alongside Ashton Kutcher in Just Married the following year, with veteren film critic Roger Ebert questioning how Murphy could go from her performance in 8 Mile to this "ungainly and witless comedy."

The pair were nominated in the Worst Screen Couple category at the 2004 Golden Raspberry Awards, with Murphy herself getting a nod with a nominee for Worst Supporting Actress. A string of critically abused misfires followed, the lowest points being Uptown Girls and Neverwas, which both scored an embarrassing 14 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. The Atlanta-born actress went on to play emperor penguin Gloria in George Miller's 2006 animated smash Happy Feet, though a possible future in voice acting was cut short when she died tragically at the age of 32 through a combination of pneumonia and anaemia.
