Kidder was 69-years-old at the time of her death, but no cause was given by the funeral home that confirmed her passing.

Margot Kidder, who starred as the Lois Lane to Christopher Reeve's Clark Kent in four "Superman" films in the late '70s and '80s, died Sunday at her home in Montana. The last listed appearance of any kind came in an apparently independent film that was released past year.

- Maureen McCormick (@MoMcCormick7)Margot Kidder should be remembered as much for courageously, candidly discussing her battles with mental illness as for any screen role.

Kidder is seen signing autographs at Comic Con in San Diego in 2005.

In 1996, Kidder made headlines when she was placed in psychiatric care following a severe mental health lapse that found her disheveled and hiding in a neighbor's yard. She went missing for four days before being discovered in a Los Angeles homeowners' backyard.

Years later Margot said she had not had a manic episode for a long time because she had been cured by orthomolecular medicine.

Reeve died in 2004 after being paralyzed and confined to a wheelchair due to a horse riding accident in 1995. She reprised the role in Superman II (1980), Superman III (1983) and Superman IV: The Quest for Peace (1987). After a trip to NY that included seeing a stage production of Bye, Bye Birdie, she first got the idea to try acting. By the 2000s, however, she had maintained steady work in independent films as well as television, with guest-starring roles on Smallville, Brothers & Sisters, and The L Word.

Kidder is survived by daughter Maggie McGuane, granddaughter Maisie Kirn and grandson Charlie Kirn. Kidder Wednesday actor John Heard in 1979 for six days.

She also had a string of high profile relationships including dating former Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, directors Brian de Palma and Steven Spielberg, and comedian Richard Pryor.

The protest outside the White House was broken up by police, who arrested several activists, including Kidder and her friend and fellow actress Tantoo Cardinal.
