Marion Cotillard (1975 - )
Pretty Things (Les Jolies choses) (2001) [Marie/Lucie]: Playing a dual role as twin sisters, "Lucie" commits suicide by jumping out of a window. ("Marie" survives the movie.) (Thanks to GLC)

Love Me If You Dare (Jeux d'enfants) (2003) [Sophie Kowalsky]: Commits suicide, along with Guillaume Canet, by allowing themselves to be buried in wet cement at a construction site. The scene cuts from them embracing in the cement to a scene showing elderly versions of them (Nathalie Nattier and Robert Willar) in a nursing home, then cuts back to the cement. It's left up to the viewer's interpretation as to which version of their fate is reality and which is fantasy. (Thanks to GLC)
