Eminem and 8 Mile cast pay tribute to Brittany Murphy
Eminem and the cast of 8 Mile paid tribute to Brittany Murphy ahead of the film’s 10th anniversary.
Brittany died in December 2009 after suffering a cardiac arrest linked to pneumonia and anaemia.
Eminem, Mekhi Phifer, Anthony Mackie, Evan Jones and Omar Benson Miller got together for an upcoming Vibe magazine cover story, where the group reminisced about shooting the 2002 drama, taking time to remember actress Murphy, who played Eminem’s onscreen lover.
Eminem told Vibe, ”Brittany was a good person, a super-nice girl. She was very down-to-earth; she’d talk to anybody.”
Jones says, “(She was) a really good actress. She brought so much to that role,” while Phifer adds, “She was bubbly.”
And Mackie recalls, “She was always speaking positivity, and when it was time to get busy, she got busy! Like Evan said, she brought a lot to the role. I remember reading it and not thinking there was so much on the page.”
Eminem’s feature film debut, 8 Mile, broke box office records earning a whopping $51.2 million in only its first three days.
