    The mother of the late Brittany Murphy has announced that she is to write a biography of her daughter.

    Sharon Murphy, who is Ashkenazi Jewish, said the biography would be an accurate account of her daughter’s “life, loves, and career."

    Ms Murphy, an actress famous for roles in Clueless and 8 Mile, died in December 2009 at the age of 32.

    Her husband, British Jewish screenwriter Simon Monjack, died five months later from acute pneumonia.

    Mrs Murphy said she would give a percentage of the profits to charity. “This book will be my way of celebrating and honouring her extraordinary life and career."

    Today would have been the actress's 33rd birthday
