I was shocked to hear this. It was reported in the NY Post that her hollywood lifestyle-too much drugs, too little food, and perhaps influence from her weirdo husband, who has a bad rep in many cirlces, cauased her downwards spiral. She was really cute and had a lot of potential. I had seen her in Clueless, Little Black Book and Sin City. I have not seen her in the film she did with Ashton Kutcher. I think it's possible her breakup with him left her heartbroken a little. Maybe she never got over it and hence the drug use, etc.
