British actress Lucy Gordon found dead in Paris.

PARIS French police say British actress Lucy Gordon, who appeared in "Spider-Man 3," was found dead in her Paris apartment after apparently committing suicide.

An official with the Paris police headquarters says an autopsy has been ordered to determine the cause of death. The official said Thursday it appeared to be a suicide, but gave no details.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because of police agency policy.

Gordon, 28, appeared in a dozen films, including as reporter Jennifer Dugan in "Spider-Man 3." She portrays British singer and actress Jane Birkin in the upcoming biopic "Serge Gainsbourg (a heroic life)" by Joann Sfar.

Wonder why she took her own life? Sad news.

I have no idea who this is, and the Wikipedia article is about Ubuntu.

So if this photo is of any indication, the next ones to go are Wes Bentley and Kate Hudson.

She was the reporter in Spider-Man 3. Which was always so out of place having a British reporter on local American news. Too bad she's gone.

I think more people would have been saddened if it were Lucy Pinder.

Reading the news article on AOL it appears as if a close friend also committed suicide and that could have led to what happened.

Re: British actress Lucy Gordon found dead in Paris.

Pretty or not (and according to the second pic she surely was), it's sad to hear of anyone driven to suicide. And wm, read your Bible. She's dead and therefore concious of NOTHING. She certainly is resting in peace.

Sad to hear. She was a rather beautiful young woman. I have a lot of respect for anyone who commits suicide though. That takes major balls.

Am I going to hell (or RIP) for laughing out loud at this?

O.K., so Wes Bentley is pretty much dead. So please PLEASE let Kate Hudson be next. And by that, I mean her career.
