Murphy, who also starred in "Clueless" and "8 Mile," died in 2009, when she was 32.

Dakota Fanning will never forget her late Uptown Girls costar Brittany Murphy.

Fanning, who played an 8-year-old with adult worries to Murphy's immature nanny in the 2003 dramedy, told Brit and Co. Sunday at the premiere of The Watchers that she is very aware of clips from the film going viral on TikTok. And she's a fan.

It didn't take her long to mention Murphy, who died in 2009.

"And I loved Brittany so much and I still miss her, so any time that she has, ya know, sort of a moment where people think about her is also nice," she said in the video below.

Murphy died at 32, days after collapsing in the bathroom of her home in the Hollywood Hills. Ultimately, the Los Angeles County coroner determined that the actress had succumbed to a combination of pneumonia, anemia, and "multiple drug intoxication" from over-the-counter and prescription medication.

"She was really sick with pneumonia, very anemic, and she was taking medication," Coroner Asst. Chief Ed Winter told People, "and all that combined killed her."

Murphy was perhaps best known for her role as Tai in the 1995 comedy Clueless and as a paramour of Eminem's Jimmy in 8 Mile. Murphy also notably portrayed Daisy in the drama Girl, Interrupted (1999), Shellie in Robert Rodriguez's Sin City (2005), Sarah in the romantic comedy Just Married, and, in the 2001 thriller Don't Say a Word, psychiatric patient Elisabeth Burrows.

Fanning has mentioned her love of Murphy before. In April 2018, she posted a photo of the two in costume and noted that Murphy was "a ray of sunshine that made every day of filming magical for me."
