Capable of drawing people's attention through her versatility in portraying various human characters on-screen apart from her unusual beauty, Brittany Anne Murphy indeed is one great young talent Hollywood should be proud to have of. A petite yet energetic performer of Italian, Eastern European, and Irish descent, Britt, so she is usually called, was born as the only child of Angelo Bertolotti and Sharon Murphy on November 10, 1977 in Atlanta, Georgia. Her name originally was Sharon Bertolotti, but she later changed it to her current name upon cutting ties with her father who had left the family since his divorce in late 1970s. Raised solely by her mother, the girl spent her early life in Edison, New Jersey where she persistently developed her acting skills in regional theater while attending Herbert Hoover School to then earn appearances in local stage productions of "Les Miserables" and "Really Rosie" at age 9.
