  • Margot Kidder's Death Ruled Suicidal Overdose

In a joint statement, Kidder's family and the Park County Coroner's Office said they are urging "those suffering from mental illnesses, addiction and/or suicidal thoughts to seek appropriate counselling and treatment".

At the time of her passing, Margot Kidder's cause of death was not revealed, as her manager only offered that she had died peacefully in her sleep.

Margot Kidder, best known for playing Lois Lane in the Superman films in the 1970s and 1980s, died on Sunday, May 13 at the age of 69.

The coroner did not specify what drugs she took.

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".

She continued to act in her later years but her popularity waned after she suffered a highly publicised mental breakdown in 1996.

Iran's foreign minister has said the United States will not be able to prevent the country from exporting oil . Help us grow and continue telling Israel's story to the world.

"It's a big relief that the truth is out there", McGuane said.

Hollywood has been rocked by suicides this year, with Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain also taking their own lives.

Kidder was born in Canada and spent decades acting in movies and television shows before and after Superman, including Some Kind of Hero, The L Word and Smallville.

She told AP: "It's a very unique sort of grief and pain".

Both Kidder and co-star Christopher Reeve, who played Superman, were relative unknowns when they got their leading parts, and neither saw many major roles afterwards. I want what I know about her to be out there because it was glorious. Additionally, ambulances were called to Kidder's home five times in seven months, including at the time of her death. Her film "Robber's Roost" was in pre-production, and the final film she worked on was 2017's "The Neighborhood".
