Brittany Murphy's Funeral Set for Christmas Eve

Actress Brittany Murphy will be laid to rest on Thursday (Christmas Eve) at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Hollywood Hills.

The funeral service is listed as “strictly private,” so forget about trying to be a wedding crasher. The family wanted her funeral close to Christmas because it was always Brittany's favorite holiday. So sad!

Meanwhile, Brittany's mother in law Linda Monjack, has opened up about the family's shock and grief following Brittany's untimely death over the weekend.

"He has lost the love of his life," Monjack says of her son, Simon Monjack, in an interview with The Jewish Chronicle.

"It's very hard for everybody, especially Simon and Brittany's mother," she said. "I've spoken to her mother, and she is distraught. Brittany was an only child, and her mother was living with them."

According to Radaronline, funeral details are being kept under wrap, but we're sure Simon-the-opportunist will give an in depth interview about it right after the ceremony.
