  • i cant remember if she was w/ Ashton in that movie or not lfl, but she was in Clueless and in 8mile....she had a heart attack and didnt revive. No details as to why yet. Rumors all over the net are drugs or eating disorder. But we won't know for sure till they do the autopsy! the story is still developing. What a year for celebrities aye? :(

  • It is very sad, but I think I know one reason she may have had a heart attack. When you are SO skinny because of say bulimia and anorexia, your body starts to feed off of itself . . it's own muscles. Since your heart is a muscle . . . it can cause you to be more susceptible to things such as a heart attack. I know that I haven't explained this very well, but it's true. I will try to find a link. SO YOUNG! I am 31--that's nuts. At least she didn't have children . . I don't think she did anyway. Poor girl.

  • A heart attack is one of the most common causes of death in those suffering with an Eating Disorder. The below information was reprinted from the American Heart Association.

  • Total shock. My heart goes to her family.

    *Bridget, I understand what you meant...thats how Karen Carpenter died was from a heart attack due to her eating disorder issues.

  • I just watched her in a movie based on a Nora Roberts book, she looked pale and very skinny. I have always loved her in movies but often thought maybe she had a drug addiction... I know it's not right to speculate. I feel bad for her family and close friends.
