Spider-Man Star Commits Suicide

| Filed under: AnglophiliaR.I.P.

It was reported early this morning that British actress Lucy Gordon was found dead on Wednesday.

She apparently hanged herself in her Paris, France, apartment.

Authorities are not running an investigation, claiming it is a "clear case of suicide."

The young actress was to turn 29 this week and was said to be devastated by the recent suicide of a friend, supplying a possible motive for her tragic death.

An agent for the actress confirmed that she "ended her own days."

Gordon had a film screening in Cannes this week: a biopic about singer-songwriter Serge Gainsbourg in which she played British actress Jane Birkin. She also has been seen in such films as Spider-Man 3, Serendipity, and Frost.

Our thoughts go out to her family and friends.

    to be the "star" of a movie, you have to have had a starring role in that movie, or at least a memorable role…she's a very pretty girl, but i don't remember her face, much less being the "star" of spider-man.



  2. 2

    ummm…could she really be considered a star in spider man??

    RIP

    it's so sad & devastating.

    may she rest in peace.

    WTF was she thinking? Beautiful, successful, seriously, WTF????? Mental illness is not taken seriously enough in this world today. It is seen as something so shameful that needs to be hidden, when really it is all too common and needs to be addressed in a MAJOR way.

    Re: crazyinlaRe: obbie doobie! – Does it matter if she was a "STAR" or not. The girl is dead, have sympathy. What was Perez supposed to write "young actress in SuperMan dies". I have to say some people are so stupid with the things they post. If she made it on the big screen and to Cannes well than I guess she's considered a Star.



  11. 11

    R.I.P. Lucy. Well at least it was a nice review of her.



  12. 12

    Re: Shakermaker – I have a hard time feeling sympathy towards those who take their lives as well, but did you stop to think that maybe the people she left behind wouldn't like you to call her a stupid selfish bitch, dumb ass?



  13. 13

    Was she the blonde girl in Spiderman 3? I can't place her.



  14. 14

    i agree with #14 it doesnt matter if she was a star or not, she could be anybody, but the point is she commited suicide, more point to prove that the world isnt as beautiful as people are claiming…



  15. 15

    Tragic…
    R.I.P. honey



  16. 16

    That's truly sad :(

    Re: TheSoonToBeMRS… – i wasn't trying to be insensitive, i just think perez shouldn't put misleading titles on his articles just to attract readers…



  18. 18

    I have no sympathy for the person who commits suicide. I DO have great sympathy for her family and friends because she left them in the most selfish way. Obviously, she knew first hand how unbearable the pain of a loved one dying was. She KNEW that she would inflict that very same unbearable pain on others.
    ————-
    Depression is treatable, I know, because I have been there ages ago.



  19. 19

    This is just too sad when somebody this young feels the need to committ suicide. I wish she could have talked to somebody about her feelings and gotten professional help before she decided to take this step.

    R.I.P.



  20. 20

    Sad, she looks a lot like Evangeline Lilly… RIP



  21. 21

    Re: amichg – Yeah, that's why is so sad to read in this same blog how Perez wishes people like Lindsay Lohan & Britney Spears their death, he can be a real jerk most of the times and it's even more hateful to read comments asking this girls who obviously have mental issues to pull the trigger already!



  22. 22

    AWW SO SAD!

    REST WITH THE ANGELS DARLING!



  23. 23

    r.i.p. what a sad story, its so sad that someone so young has been driven to take her own life. my heart goes out to her family



  24. 24

    Whats sad is that she didnt get help in time - she could have been deterred from commitiing suicide via therapy etc if her depression was noticed



  25. 25

    Re: TheSoonToBeMRS… – how was i was being insensitive? i was asking a general question. perez stated a "star", my first thought was who is she? i don't remember her, so how could she be clasified as a star? i didn't even mention anything about her suicide. he could have put "star of spider man caught ass fucking" and i would again ask if she was really a star.



  26. 26

    Wow how tragic.So young, so gorgeous.Life is so precious.



  27. 27

    Lucy was a decent, kind and lovely person. This is a tragedy. Her family must be devastated. I'm so sorry to read this awful news. I knew her briefly and liked her very much. She appeared to have a bright future ahead. May she find peace from the pain she was trying to escape from.



  28. 28

    Re: obbie doobie! – man oobie…….. you're a real pile of crap. who cares whether you knew her or not. show some respect, this poor girl is gone.



  29. 29

    It's so sad. Rest in Peace Lucy

    I find it very sad that mental illness / depression isn't taken as seriously as it should be.



  30. 30

    People who think she was selfish for killing herself - Grow the eff up. It's as much everyone she knew's fault as it is hers. There is always signs of depression, people close to her should of seen them. And I find it strange how her boyfriend could of slept through her hanging herself. There's more to this than meets the eye, there always is.

    You're a fucking idiot.

    How is it ANYONE ELSE'S fault she killed herself? If someone wants to kill themselves they will, no matter how much you baby them. Only stupid people kill themselves, and the world is better off with less stupid people, IMO.

    she must have suffered from depression or some other type of mental issue BEFORE her friend committed suicide. I can't imagine someone healthy in mind killing themselves just because a friend did it. The death probably was just the last straw. Sometimes people don't talk about their own depression because they are fearful of what others will think. Friends and family can't help with something they now nothing abou;; they can't read minds.



  34. 34

    Re: karijane

    No, just no. Some people don't give off obvious signs.

    It is selfish, she knew more than anybody else she needed help and she took the easy way out. No sympathy from me towards her.

    White culture and a waste of good cooch!

    do you mean "hung".

    haha.

    ;)

    WHAT IS UP WITH ALL THESE SUICIDES????? IT SEEMS LIKE THERES MORE AND MORE EVERYDAY… SO SAD. ITS TRULY UPSETTING THAT PPL FEEL SO CERTAIN THAT THEIR LIFE IS MEANINGLESS AND NOT WORTH IT….



  39. 39

    Re: Shakermaker – Extreme physical or mental illness and the pain and anguish they cause can cause people to reach a limit they can no longer endure. They simply can't take it anymore. A normal person would feel compassion for her and for her grieving family and friends. Brutal insensitive comments like yours sure don't help anyone. Pity she didn't get the help she needed. It's not too late for you however.

    i knew her and we were friends , i got the call this morning and i just wish nobody would have this kind of phone calls… She was supposed to go to Cannes and seemed very happy
    i don't understand at all what happened and i feel terrible pain reading this as its more "real"
    she was an adorable girl with an amazing sense of humour , she was kind and generous, she had the loudest laugh ive ever heard and its hard to believe that she's gone
    don't hate please, just send her , her family and us friends and relatives your prayers because we need them

    and thank you perez for showing her some compassion

    I can understand. When you welcome someone into your life, and they devastate you, for whatever reason, you feel lost, completely and utterly lost. It is bad enough when that devastation comes from physical and emotional abandonment, but when it involves death…like a suicide, as a part of that abandonment, how can a mind not become unhinged? You can be hit with a perfect storm of suffering, one betrayal and disappointment after another…and when that happens, sometimes you can't be consoled.

    depression is something that should NEVER be taken lightly! i'm not sure how the hc system is in france but it's a disgrace in the US. depression can be quite debilitating and if you are too depressed to work you won't be able to get treatment……the hc system is too inaccessible for people with depression. we need hc reform now so that lives can be saved. google depression sites and you'll see what most people with this disease experience. it fucking sucks beyond belief!

    i hear you

    Re: Shakermaker
    i feel sorry for you b/c of your lack of education. don't you EVER say that about people who commit suicide and have depression.
    why don't you go ahead and google the latest neurological research that proves that etiology of depression is in fact physiological. its a disease like diabetes and cancer. wake up and get educated!!!!



  46. 46

    Sounds fishy. Beautiful women don't kill themselves..



  47. 47

    Poor girl….. that's really sad. Her problems must have been huge. And thats the only way she saw. That's a horrible death. Poor poor girl and my prayers go out to her family and friends!



  48. 48

    Re: amichg – mental illness is taken very seriously…there are numerous organizations and clinic dedicated to this problem.. it's just a matter of people accessing them. Sometime depression is so severe, that medication and various forms of therapy are not sufficient to alleviate the symptoms. Image how helpless, lost, and out of options she must have felt to take this drastic measure…



  49. 49

    Re: fairystar – yes. thank you for replying to such ignorance and lack of compassion for people who are truly mentally ill. i'm bipolar and i've attempted suicide before. if it wasn't for therapy ad medication i'd be in a very dark place, or even dead. most people just don't understand.

    "hung" herself you mean. She didn't "hanged" herself.



  51. 51

    R.I.P.



  52. 52

    Re: hobieluv83
    Dust up on your English lessons fool – the past tense of "hang" is "hanged," not "hung." In future, do your homework before embarrassing yourself.



  53. 53

    Re: hobieluv83 – I agree

    Re: Johnny Machine – your so stupid

    She doesn't deserve recognition. The woman HUNG herself which means she wanted to leave this world so let's forget about her and move on.



  54. 54

    she was pretty!…:(



  55. 55

    wow i wonder why??????

    Re: Shakermaker
    clearly not a spelling be champion.

    where did you get those statistics?

    turd? really!?

    wow.



  57. 57

    Re: miss_couture
    Of course you'd agree with hobieluv83, which in itself is proof positive that you are a class A idiot. Just because you are so ignorant as to ASSUME that "hung" is the past tense of "hanged," it doesn't make it correct. And YOU trying to school ME in grammar??? Oh the irony!!! Just look at the illiterate comment you directed towards me – the word is "you're," not "your," you heinously retarded dimwit.
    By the way, are you aware of what a dictionary is? If so, try using one before claiming your idiotic assumptions as fact, you witless fucktard. You'd do well to refrain from making such an utter embarrassment of yourself.

    Re: jenki75017 – Since you knew her; would you tell she could be possible to kill herself? althought she was so kind and all, could she be hiding some extreme pain and leaving it only for her?
