She goes to James Spader for help, but when he decides to "help" by finishing her off, she staggers out into the street and dies while several other characters try to save her.  (Note: There is also an earlier scene in which James shows a topless photo of Charlize "playing dead" to convince Peter Horton she's already been murdered.)
  • The Devil's Advocate (1997) [Mary Ann Lomax]: Commits suicide by slitting her throat with a piece of broken glass in a hospital room while Keanu Reeves watches helplessly. Her death is later undone when Keanu rejects Al Pacino's satanic offer and everything is restored to as it had been.

("Aeon" survives the movie.)
  • Hancock (2008) [Mary Embrey]: Temporarily flatlines after being shot by David Mattey and Maetrix Fitten; she comes back to life after Will Smith flies away, allowing her healing powers to activate.

  • Kubo and the Two Strings (2016; animated) [Monkey/Sariatu]: (1) As "Sariatu", Charlize dies as she charges at her Sisters (voiced by Rooney Mara) to allow Kubo (voiced by Art Parkinson) to escape. (2) "Sariatu" is reincarnated into the form of "Monkey", and dies again when she sacrifices herself so that Kubo can destroy the remaining Sister with a destructive magical note from his shamisen. "Sariatu" later appears as a spirit at the end of the film.
  • The Old Guard (2020) [Andy]: Charlize "dies" twice in the film, but as an immortal being with regenerative healing powers she returns to life almost immediately. 1) She and her fellow immortals are ambushed and shot by a group of attackers sent by Chiwetel Ejiofor who wanted to film their regeneration. 2) Centuries ago, Charlize and an another immortal Veronica Ngo are hanged as witches.
