LOS ANGELES, Dec. 22 (UPI) -- U.S. actor Eric Roberts said he is saddened by the death of Brittany Murphy, his two-time co-star and someone he described as an "incredible actress."

Murphy and Roberts appeared together in "Spun," and will be seen next year sharing the big screen a second time in "The Expendables."

"I would like to this time to offer my sincere condolences, deepest sympathy and prayers to the family of Brittany Murphy," Roberts said in a statement Tuesday. "I am saddened by her passing. She was a terrific young lady and an incredible actress. It was a genuine pleasure to have worked with such a talented individual. Brittany will be greatly missed by her family, friends and fans. Her untimely passing is a tremendous loss for Hollywood."
