Brittany Murphy’s father Angelo Bertolotti says he is “disgusted” by “trashy” film defiling his daughter’s memory, The Hollywood Reporter has noted.
Lifetime will air biopic The Brittany Murphy Story this week. With the upcoming premiere, her father has expressed serious dislike of the movie.
“I am disgusted and outraged that Lifetime decided to produce such a trashy project, defiling the memory of my beautiful, talented daughter, Brittany Murphy,” Angelo Bertolotti told The Examiner. “Frankly, I am amazed at their audacity of calling it ‘a true story,’ without conducting any research or consulting with any members of the family. The Brittany Murphy Story is an affront to everything my daughter was in real life. It’s hideous, unauthorized and completely untrue.”
Amanda Fuller will play Brittany Murphy in the biopic.
