Cate Blanchett in 'Veronica Guerin'
Cate Blanchett (1969 - )
The Man Who Cried (2000) [Lola]: Killed in an explosion when a German plane drops a bomb on the ship, while she's swimming in the ship's pool. (Thanks to Erivelton)

The Shipping News (2001) [Petal Bear]: Killed in a car accident when her car goes through a guardrail and into the water; her body is shown afterwards when the car is pulled out of the water. (Thanks to Shelley)

Heaven (2002) [Philippa]: The final scene shows Cate and Giovanni Ribisi ascending straight up in a helicopter until they disappear from sight; although the scene appears symbolic, if interpreted literally, they both presumably die in the inevitable crash shortly after the movie ends. (Thanks to Diahann)

Veronica Guerin (2003) [Veronica Guerin]: Shot repeatedly by a hitman while sitting in her car at a red light. (Thanks to Davis)

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008) [Daisy]: Dies of old age/natural causes in her hospital room. (At this point in the movie, she's made up to look much older than she actually was.) (Thanks to Tommy)

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008) [Irina Spalko]: Burned to death/disintegrated by the powers of the crystal skulls when they overload her brain with knowledge. (Thanks to Steve, Hunter, and Josh)

Hanna (2011) [Marissa]: Shot in the head (off-camera) by Saoirse Ronan, after Saoirse first shoots her in the chest with an arrow; the movie ends just as Saoirse fires. (Thanks to Tommy)
