he actress Brittany Murphy who has played Jimmy Smithís love interest in 8 Mile has come closer to Eminem than many women will ever come. She has spent a lot of time working with him on the great movie. She is one of the persons who will make you understand that Marshall is a real nice person. In an interview given to TV guide online, the actress described Marshall as an honest and loveable person:
“He’s great. I adore him so far,he’s a good person. He’s an honest person and he’s funny and talented – and really lovely to be around.”
Brittany has even been more than just Eminemís love interest Alex in 8 Mile, she has also been his girlfriend:
“We became very close.”
At the time they played the hot scene between Alex and Jimmy, Brittany first didnít realize how much she liked him:
“(At the time) I didn’t realize that I liked him like that. I was very nervous about it. “
Brittany Murphy can testify that Marshall always treated her respectfully while playing their love scene:
“He’s actually the most respectful person that I ever had a love scene with.
“It’s an extremely raunchy scene. It could have been an awful experience, but instead it was a very private, on a very closed set.
“Marshall was so overwhelmingly respectful; he didn’t make dumb jokes as guys sometimes do when they’re nervous on set. He didn’t make me feel uncomfortable in any way.”I
t is time for his detractors to realize that Marshall isnít a women hater, but a regular and sensitive man in real life. The women who have dated Marshall will confirm that he has treated them as a gentleman. Marshall may have deep wound because two women (Debbie and Kim) have hurt him a lot, but he is not against women in general.
“To me, he was Marshall. He’s a family man, an extraordinary worker and gives everything to his daughter. He’s one of the hardest working, determined, brilliant people that I have ever met in my life and I think that it’s great that the world is getting to know different sides of him. He’s constantly been judged for what he says, tongue in cheek, and finally people are realizing a lot more about him which is great.Ē (Brittany Murphy)
