Having seen this video about 50 times when the song “Closest Thing To Heaven” came out in 2004, I never knew who the girl in the video was. I just recently was sorry to learn that the “damsel in distress” at sea was Brittany Murphy.
Murphy passed away just over a month ago. Oddly enough, the video is better produced than some of the movies she was in. Tragically, in the world of music video, she was saved. In reality, she couldn’t be.
Check out the video, Brittany Murphy at her absolute best!
