Superman Actress Margot Kidder Passes Away

Margot Kidder Christopher Reeve

Several months later, she revealed her diagnosis to People. "She was a fighter".

She commented: "So saddened by the news that dear #MargotKidder has died peacefully in her sleep yesterday".

She is survived by Maggie, 41, her daughter with first husband, novelist Thomas McGuane. As she once said: "Acting's fun, but life's more important". "She was passionate for a just society, and part of that just society was recognizing how hard the struggles can be with mental illness and that we can do something about it". It was important to be open about those things. She lived on the street for days, until police found her and took her to a psychiatric hospital.

However, her career came to a halt after she was seriously injured in a auto crash, leaving her unable to work for two years.

Kidder became an American citizen in 2005 as well as an outspoken activist against the Iraq War. "He was very aware of that and very happy with that role".

The Canadian-born actress was married and divorced three times. "I'm saying this is the pattern of my life". Hitherto Kidder had played small roles in TV shows like Janacek and Harry O, and in forgotten movies like Quackser Fortune has a Cousin in the Bronx.

"I guess she will always be known for Lois Lane; she will be known for the most popular film she was in".

Jurgen Klopp hails 'nearly ideal season' for Liverpool
Brighton arrived having secured their place in the top tier for next season with a win against Manchester United over a week ago. Some had reservations about his signing given a previous underwhelming spell in England with Chelsea , Liverpool's owner John W.

She wasn't the only "Smallville" star to speak out on social media about Kidder's death. "It wasn't something I really liked or something I was very good at". Cocky, self-assured, and proud of her chain-smoking habit (and inability to spellcheck), she breathed some screwball humour into the film as well as an air of authentic newsroom brassiness.

Kidder's long career is an inspiration, but so too was her tenacity in the face of despair. She leaves behind a legacy of greatness, from Superman to Amittyville Horror and Black Christmas, as well as giving with her charitable work and political activism.

Edgar Wright tweeted a black-and-white picture of Kidder with the caption, "Sad to hear of the passing of Margot Kidder". Kidder was to have been a guest at this weekend's Motor City Comic Con. The cause of death was not immediately known.

"Superman", directed by Richard Donner and released in 1978, was a superhero blockbuster two decades before comic book movies became the norm at the top of the box office. She died in Livingston, Montana at age 69. "We continued to have fun together over the last 40 years".

But it was the role of Lois Lane that launched her into mainstream success. But as she grew older she spent less time on the screen and more time living.

"I don't act much anymore unless I'm broke, and then I'll take a job", she told the Detroit radio station with a laugh.
