  • Margot Kidder's Death Ruled Suicidal Overdose

Kidder's daughter, Maggie McGuane - during a chat with the Associated Press - said she and the rest of their family wanted to be honest about her death to avoid the "cloud of shame".

The official cause of death was self-inflicted drug and alcohol overdose, the coroner ruled in a press release.

Kidder was married to novelist Thomas McGuane with whom she had a daughter, Maggie.

Kidder was famously outspoken and candid about mental illness and her struggles with bipolar disorder after making headlines in 1996 when she disappeared for four days and was found in a backyard in Glendale, California. It is unknown which drugs she ingested.


At the time of her death, Kidder's manager, Camilla Pines, told ET that the actress died "peacefully in her sleep" on May 13.

In addition to her role as Lois Lane in Superman (1978), Superman II (1980), Superman III (1983) and Superman IV (1987), Margot Kidder is known for the original The Amityville Horror, Boston Common, Shell Game and a slew of other works. "She was really a blazing energy".

In the month after Kidder died at age 69 on May 13 in Livingston, Mont., designer Kate Spade and chef Anthony Bourdain took their own lives, prompting widespread conversations about how to prevent what has become a national public health crisis. A friend discovered Kidder's body at her home on May 13th.

She told AP: "It's a very unique sort of grief and pain". She continued to act in many movies and TV shows, most recently the 2017 film "The Neighborhood". "Knowing how many families in this state go through this, I wish that I could reach out to each one of them". She received a Daytime Emmy Award as outstanding performer in a kids' series in 2015 for that role.
