In a statement provided to The Associated Press, Coroner Richard Wood of the Park County Coroner's Office in Montana where Kidder lived said her death in May at the age of 69 was "a result of a self-inflicted drug and alcohol overdose".

She starred in the Superman trilogy released between 1978-1983 as hotshot reporter Lane, who was also the love interest of Clark Kent - played by Christopher Reeve, who died in 2004. The coroner did not specify which drugs she took, TMZ reported.

Her daughter Maggie McGuane said on Wednesday that it was a "big relief" to have the truth out.

McGuane continued, "It's a very unique sort of grief and pain". The world mourned the loss of chef, celebrity chef, Anthony Bourdain and fashion designer, Kate Spade this past summer as well.

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.
