Dakota Fanning has paid tribute to tragic actress Brittany Murphy, her co-star in 2003 movie Uptown Girls.
Fanning was just nine when she lined up alongside Murphy, who played her childlike nanny in the comedy.
But she remembers the experience well, and cherishes the time she spent with the late star.
Fanning says, "My thoughts go out to her family and friends. I am just very grateful that I had the chance to work with her."
Murphy died from a cardiac arrest at her Los Angeles home on Sunday (20Dec09). She was just 32.
