    Alicia, Whoopi, Other Costars Rave About "Sweet" Brittany Murphy

    One thing is for certain: Brittany Murphy was sweet.

    When so many celebrities use that specific word to describe the fallen star, we know it's not only a matter of opinion but pure fact.

    Clueless may have been filmed 15 years ago, but the candylike taste of her presence remains on the lips of her costars.

    "I'm so saddened to hear this news. I loved working with Brittany. She was so talented, so warm and so sweet," Alicia Silverstone says in a statement. "I always felt connected to her as we shared a very special experience in our lives together. I feel love in my heart for her-and hope she is at peace."

    "Brittany was one of the sweetest people you will ever meet," Donald Faison, who also appeared with Murphy in Uptown Girls, tells E! News in a statement. "She had the voice of an angel and a genuine heart of gold. I'm very happy to have known and worked with such a special person. My heart goes out to all of her loved ones."

    Her Clueless homies aren't the only ones mourning the starlet.

    "It is a terrible loss for us as actors and to the industry but even greater for her family," Murphy's Girl, Interrupted costar Whoopi Goldberg tells E! News. "My thoughts and prayers are with them."

    "Brittany Murphy was in Drop Dead Gorgeous with me and was the sweetest and most adorable," Denise Richards writes on Twitter. "Tragic, sad & devastating. Her poor family."

    "So so sad about Brittany Murphy. I did David & Lisa with her. Amazing talent. Incredible singer! SHE should have played Janis Joplin. I'll miss," mourns Debi Mazar.

    "Another sad, sad loss," writes her Spun costar Eric Roberts. "She was a sweet, smart girl & a real actress."
