Tributes to Margot Kidder have poured in from fellow celebrities and the public as the woman who defined the role of Lois Lane during the 1970s and 1980s died Sunday in Livingston, Montana, People magazine reported. Her manager confirmed her death at her home in Montana to CNN. "She was all those things in the same way as (Lane)".

"So saddened by the news that dear #MargotKidder has died peacefully in her sleep yesterday", Douglas wrote. "Who's got you?!" when she first encountered the costumed hero as she and a helicopter plunged from the top of a Metropolis building.

Kidder had numerous film's most memorable lines, including "You've got me?! There was nothing to be ashamed of".

The star had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder back in 1988, however Margot later admitted she initially rejected her psychiatrist's findings and refused treatment.

"We are all. a breath away from mental illness, homelessness, all of these things we tend to so look down on", she said in 2006. "No one noticed the difference one from the other - it worked".

She won a Daytime Emmy Award in 2015 for her role on the children's TV show "R.L. Stine's The Haunting Hour".

Kidder also had a small part in "The Great Waldo Pepper" with Robert Redford in 1975, and a leading role in "The Amityville Horror" alongside James Brolin in 1979.

India's Tharoor charged over wife's death
Sunanda Pushkar's body had been found in her suite (number 345) of Delhi's five-star Hotel Leela Palace on January 17 , 2014. The charge sheet mentions marital discord as the cause of suicide and says that one party led the other to commit suicide.

Also known for her political activism, she was among a group of environmentalists to be arrested outside the White House in 2011 during a protest against TransCanada's Keystone XL pipeline. "That's how she wanted to live her life".

Kidder married and divorced three times, according to trade journal Variety. "Ironically a colleague and I were just getting in touch with her the last few months about doing a documentary of her life and she wanted to do that", Wilder added. Kidder told Hey U Guys she thought the film would be a flop. We were very politically active so we had that in common.

After sleeping on the streets, days later Margot was found and placed in psychiatric care, at which point she later revealed: "Finally, I was able to accept the diagnosis".

However, a computer virus prompted the machine to crash - leaving her without files she'd been working on for years. And of course she remains the best Lois Lane in the magical "Superman" & "Superman II".

"There was only one true Lois Lane".

DC Comics, the home of the Superman franchise, also issued a statement on Twitter.

"She led the way brilliantly", Hatcher wrote. "She said, 'I think there's going to be a lot more death like that happening".
