Actress Brittany Murphy has hit out at rumours she took cocaine to help her lose weight.

The 8 MILE actress has recently shown off a slimmer, more svelte physique, but she is horrified by the suggestion she has used the narcotic to help her trim down - insisting she has never even tried cocaine.

Murphy tells PAGESIX.COM, "I have never tried it in my entire life.

"I've never even seen it. I am also way too high-strung. I can't even take a Sudafed. Can you imagine? My God. I think my heart would explode."
