May the fourth hottest Lois Lane rest in peace.
Margot Kidder has passed. Most noted for playing Lois Lane in the original Superman movie with noted horseman Christopher Reeve she had a long and varied career. Also noted for one of the most spectacular flame outs where she literally went crazy and ended up homeless and on the street because of mental illness.
One of the things I found most interesting about her was what I read about her many years ago in the book "Easy Riders, Raging Bulls" which was a history of the early years in Hollywood with many of the famous directors who made so many great movies in the 1970's. She was part of a group of actors and film people who hung out all the time with Francis Ford Coppola, George Lucas and Stephen Spielberg. Spielberg was really in love with her. Hopelessly madly in love but she wouldn't give it up. So he turned to Amy Irving who baited her twat and caught him. Margot always regretted that. She would have been on Easy Street. Instead she ended up shit faced and in the bag.
Let that be a lesson to all you young actresses. Don't listen to that Me Too bullshit. Give it up. But make sure he puts a ring on it.
(Bonus question. Who were the three hotter Lois Lanes?)
