(Newser) – Brittany Murphy voiced concerns about her weight in a final interview that may turn out to be sadly prophetic: "I am a bit thinner now than what I would like to be," Murphy told Fox News' Pop Tarts in early December, citing her regimen of intense ballet workouts, the New York Daily News reports. In a separate interview that day, the 32-year-old star says her New Year's Resolution was to have a child.

"As far as having a New Year's resolution, I'd love to have a child next year," she told Access Hollywood. "I've been very blessed to have a really great loving husband," she said. "I spend more time with my family than anyone else in the world."
