In a TV talk show interview, Brittany hinted at a fling between the two, but nothing was ever confirmed.
On its surface, it was an unusual romance to say the least.
She then broke it off with him and got engaged in 2005 to a production assistant on her 2004 film "Little Black Book," Joe Macaluso. The actress once told tabloid magazine OK that she met Monjack when she was 17 and that the two had kept in touch over the years.
"The easiest decision I ever made in my life was getting married," she said.
The twice-engaged beautiful young actress with the sometimes-spotty filmography and the frumpy British B-movie director/screenwriter with a history of financial struggles who faced deportation just months before their wedding.
Now, just over three years after the revelation of their secret April 2007 nuptials, Brittany Murphy and Simon Monjack are dead, both having collapsed and passed away in the Hollywood home they shared with Murphy's mother.
But the public never actually learned if Kutcher and Murphy were truly intending to walk down the aisle.
Their romantic relationship ended after only a few months.Despite Lifetime's sleazy way of going about these productions and the generally unfavorable sentiment surrounding the movie (Variety referred to it as "a bottom-feeding slice of tacky TV movie exploitation"), there's obviously still legitimate interest in Murphy's life, such as questions about her acting career, her family, her marriage, and even the rumors surrounding her alleged engagement to Ashton Kutcher.Muprhy and Kutcher's romance reportedly blossomed on the set of a 2003 romantic comedy in which they played a starry-eyed pair of honeymooners.At the time of their relationship, Murphy and Kutcher fueled rumors that they were actually engaged to be married when they were spotted wearing matching rings — rings that the Lifetime film likes to emphasize.But the film's director Shawn Levy shot down those allegations, claiming that the rings were just "a tribute" to the movie.
