Superman actress Margot Kidder’s home ‘taken over’ by meth addicts
Superman actress Margot Kidder died surrounded by the meth addicts she was trying to help, according to a friend.
The actress, who was dubbed the most iconic Lois Lane after playing the sleuth reporter in the 1978 hit film, passed away at home earlier this month aged 69.
In the lead up to her death, Margot’s home in Livingston, Montana, is said to have been taken over by addicts who cooked up meth in her basement and ‘took advantage’ of her.
The friend says they also stole from her home without her knowing.
"Margie was a real bad judge of people," environmental activist Louisa Willcox told the Daily Mail.
"She became a target for Livingston’s meth scene," Louisa, who had been friends with Kidder for 30 years, added. "They took her jewelry, her silver, anything they could get their hands on."
She went on: "She hadn’t realised what was going on. She couldn’t understand why all these strange cars were turning up at her home at odd hours of the day and night."
Another friend claimed to publication that Margot’s drinking habits "were getting the better of her".
Doug Peacok said: "She would go on benders and drink too much. From what I heard she was recovering from one of those and went to sleep and never woke up again."
The cause of death is still unknown. According to the Mail, authorities are awaiting a toxicology report before determining the cause of death.
Margot starred opposite Christopher Reeve in 1978’s Superman and also in three further sequels. She was open with her struggle with bipolar disorder – after suffering from an extreme manic episode in 1996 which left her homeless for four days.
She later campaigned on behalf of various mental health charities.
The star was still working up to her death, starring in "The Vagina Monologues" on Broadway. She was married three times and leaves a daughter Maggie, 41.
After finding fame in Superman, she won the lead role as Kathy Lutz in horror film The Amityville Horror in 1979, gaining her further mainstream exposure.
