'Superman' star Margot Kidder died from 'self-inflicted drug and alcohol overdose'

'Superman' star Margot Kidder died from 'self-inflicted drug and alcohol overdose'

Kidder's longtime friend, Joan Kesich, who found her body, called the actress and activist "fearless".

Park County coroner Richard Wood said in a statement released today that Kidder "died as a result of a self-inflicted drug and alcohol overdose" and that no further details would be released.

Kidder's daughter, Maggie McGuane, told the AP, "It's a big relief that the truth is out there".

Kidder was married to novelist Thomas McGuane with whom she had a daughter, Maggie. Off-screen she was one of the kindest, sweetest, most caring woman I've ever known.

In what was an obvious reference to the Superman movies, Kidder made a cameo in Smallville along with the series' stars Michael Rosenbaum and Allison Mack. She reprised the high-profile role in the three more films in the franchise.

But the task of approving the export permits fell to the ruling Liberals, who were lobbied by human rights activists to say no. Trudeau was speaking in Montreal this afternoon at a news conference regarding funding for aerospace company CAE.

Kider also appeared in The Great Waldo Pepper with Robert Redford in 1975, Brian De Palma's Sisters in 1973 and The Amityville Horror in 1979. The Canadian-born actress had always been open about drug and alcohol addictions, which she said partially triggered her very public breakdown in 1996.

Kidder also battled bipolar disorder and was homeless for a short time in 1996.

Five months after her manic incident, she opened up to People magazine saying she had "mood swings that could knock over a building".

Kidder dealt with mental illness for much of her life, while a 1990 vehicle accident left her in debt and needing a wheelchair for nearly two years. It is unknown which drugs she ingested.

"The reality of my life has been grand and wonderful, punctuated by these odd blips and burps of madness", she said.
