Margot Kidder, the actress best known for playing Lois Lane in the Superman films, has died aged 69, TMZ reports.
The actress reportedly passed away at her home in Montana.
Kidder starred with Christopher Reeve in four Superman films from 1978-87 as the caped crusader's love interest, Lois.
She later used her public profile to raise awareness about the condition, and became an advocate for alternative medicine.
She is survived by her daughter Maggie, the daughter she had with her first husband, American novelist Thomas McGuane.
Kidder and McGuane divorced in 1976 after three years together; she later married The Sopranos actor John Heard in 1979, a marriage which lasted only six days.
Her third marriage was to the French director Philippe de Broca, from 1983-84. »
