Dakota Fanning has looked back at her experience of working with late actress Brittany Murphy.
The actress paid tribute to her former Uptown Girls co-star during her appearance on Wednesday’s Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.
The film saw Brittany play Dakota’s character’s nanny and just six years after the movie’s release, the actress died in 2009.
Dakota reminisced on the lesson she learnt from the bubbly actress as she admitted: ‘Oh man, she just taught me to always have fun.
‘She was such a ray of light and had such a playful spirit. So I think just…she made every day special for me. She was so wonderful.’
Dakota previously posted a tribute to Murphy on Instagram in 2018, as she remembered how her supportive costar ensured she was enjoying her time making the film.
‘#fbf Brittany Murphy was a ray of sunshine that made every day of filming magical for me. #uptowngirls,’ she wrote alongside an on-set photo of the two smiling together.
Directed by Boaz Yakin, Uptown Girls also starred Heather Locklear, Jesse Spencer, Marley Shelton and Donald Faison.
Her husband Simon Monjack was found dead five months later at age 40.
