From "The Last Days of Brittany Murphy": The Hollywood Reporter, January 19, 2011

"Simon joked that his wife's bathroom was 'her comfort zone.' He called it the 'Brittany-sized room,' reflecting her diminutive 5-foot-2 stature, and recalled how she spent hours sampling the cosmetics and perfumes that crowded every inch of counter space, critically studying her body image, sometimes singing to herself or writing bits of poetry in a journal, listening to music or paging through magazines from which she would tear out pages with clothes she just had to have."

(the picture above is from a 2009 feature on celebrities and collecting, in which Murphy said she grew up "flea-marketing" and had been collecting vintage perfume bottles over the years. )

She seemed like such a sensitive soul. I hope she'll have lots of joy and lovely things to smell in the next life...
