"It was exciting, but for a while being typecast as Lois made my vanity and narcissism scream", Kidder stated in the interview.

Both Kidder and Reeve, who played Superman, were relative unknowns when they got their leading parts in 1978's "Superman".

The actress died at her home in Livingston, Montana, on Sunday, however her cause of death is now unknown.

Teri Hatcher, who played Lois Lane on the 1990s television series Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, said that it was "a privilege" to have shared a role with "wonderful actress" Kidder. But instead of aiming to get it for the fame that will surely come with it, Kidder has a different reason why she wanted to be Lois Lane. "Nothing prepares anyone for that sudden thing of being world famous, it was such a shock", she said. And of course she remains the best Lois Lane in the magical "Superman" & "Superman II".
