MIAMI (AP) - The father of actress Brittany Murphy says he's "broken up" over news of her death and calls her "an absolute doll."

Angelo Bertolotti of the north Florida city of Branford says he's stunned by news of the 32-year-old actress' death Sunday.

He says he still doesn't know many of the details, but that he has many fond memories of his only daughter.

Bertolotti says Murphy showed interest in performance from a very young age and that she had an amazing capacity to connect with people, no matter what the circumstances. He says "she was just a regular girl."

The cause of death for the actress from "Clueless" and "8 Mile" has not yet been released.
