About Brittany Murphy

Brittany Murphy was born Brittany Anne Bertolotti on November 10, 1977, in Atlanta, Georgia, to Sharon Kathleen Murphy and Angelo Joseph Bertolotti Hollywood Actress. Her father’s ancestry is Italian, and her mother is of Irish and Slovak descent. Her father moved the family back to Edison, New Jersey as a native New Yorker and to be closer to other siblings from previous marriages. While dining out one night in the presence of Hollywood royalty, Brittany at the age of 5 approached an adjoining table when Academy Award nominee Burt Reynolds and George Segal were seated. Brittany introduced herself to the Hollywood legends and confidently told them that someday she too would be a star.

She comes from a long line of international musicians and performers with three half-brothers and a sister. Angelo Bertolotti was torn from their tight-knit family as a made-man with the Italian Mafia. The Senior Bertolotti, who coined the nickname of “Britt” for his daughter, was also an entrepreneur and diplomat for organized crime families and one of the first to be subjected to a RICO prosecution. Brittany’s interests and well-being were always her father’s first goal and objective. To distance his talented daughter from his infamous past, Angelo allowed Sharon to use her maiden name for Brittany’s, so that her shining star would not be overshadowed by a father’s past, with the couple divorcing thereafter.
