Picks and Pans Review: Spotlight On...Brittany Murphy
Especially in a crowded theater. With the premiere canceled after the Sept. 11 attacks, Murphy found herself plunking down $6.50 to see the movie in Detroit, where she's working on a film. Says she: "I was yearning for some escapism."
She is now offering audiences a double dose with Don't and Riding in Cars with Boys. On the set of that movie the actress, who lives in L.A. with her mom, escaped boredom by prank-calling costar Drew Barrymore's husband, Tom Green. "We'd leave him silly songs on voicemail," she says, bursting out laughing. What kind of songs? She'll never tell.
