Interesting Facts

1 In the Banacek episode "A Million the Hard Way" (1972) when Banacek (George Peppard) introduces himself she replies, "Banacek, just one name? Like Superman?" That was six years before her first appearance as Lois Lane.
2 Actively supported Jesse Jackson's presidential campaign in 1984.
3 After living in the US for 34 years, she became a US citizen in August of 2005 so she could vote against US President George W. Bush as part of her protest against the war in Iraq.
4 Although born in Yellowknife, the road that is named Lois Lane in Yellowknife is actually named after a long time Yellowknife resident Lois Little and not after her character in the movies.
5 Shared a beach house in California with actress Jennifer Salt in the 1970s.
6 Went to 11 schools in 12 years.
7 Along with Christopher Reeve, Jackie Cooper, and Marc McClure, she is one of only four actors to appear in the first four Superman films: Superman (1978), Superman II (1980), Superman III (1983), and Superman IV: The Quest for Peace (1987).
8 Her father was American, from New Mexico, and her mother was Canadian, from British Columbia. She is of English, and some Welsh and Northern Irish, descent. Several of her family lines lead back to New England of the 1600s.
9 Aunt of actress Janet Kidder. They both appeared in the same episode ("Walk on By") as Nikita's mother Roberta, young and old, in the TV series La Femme Nikita (1997).
10 On Aug 25, 2002, she suffered a broken pelvis near Belfast, Maine, when her GMC Yukon hit a raised pavement and rolled over several times. She had just come from hosting the 15-Minute Festival, a series of original plays staged at the National Theatre Workshop of the Handicapped. She was on her way to Montreal at the time of the accident. Kidder's friend, David Stuckey, said that the actress won't require surgery but will remain for several days at Waldo County General Hospital in Belfast. Stuckey said Kidder was in a lot of pain. "But she's in good spirits," he said. "She's OK."
11 Best known as Superman's favorite person, Lois Lane. Her much publicized behavior in 1996 was due to manic depression. She was living in a state of paranoia, convinced that her first husband was trying to kill her. Kidder soon lived as one of the homeless. She narrowly escaped being raped, and wandered about the streets of Los Angeles (barely recognizable after cutting her hair off and removing some of her dental work) before hiding underneath a family's porch that was located near the studio where Superman (1978) was filmed. Fortunately, her life is back on track after having faced the "demons" of her condition.
12 Found by police in a distressed state, hiding in someone's garden claiming she'd been stalked and attacked. Had apparently cut her hair off with a razor blade. Placed in psychiatric care. Police said there was nothing to support her story. [April 1996]
13 Has a daughter, Maggie McGuane (born October 28, 1976), with first husband Thomas McGuane.
14 Was in a serious car crash in 1990 and couldn't work for two years. She went bankrupt.

Superman (1978) $110,000


1 [On Martin Scorsese] Marty seemed wildly dedicated to creating a new kind of film, a film of substance, to putting his personal vision on film, to marrying his confusion at being a Catholic boy and the intensity of his own spirit with film itself. He loved people trying new things, he loved bravery of personal expression, and he talked about it a lot, very eloquently, albeit very quickly. I don't remember many silly talks with Marty about nothing.
2 [on Richard Pryor] I fell in love with him in two seconds flat... He was smart and funny and sexy, and you wanted to take care of him. He was wonderful. Oh gosh... he was just - Richard was irresistible.
3 [on The Amityville Horror (1979)] What a piece of shit! I couldn't believe that anyone would take that seriously. I was laughing my whole way through it, much to the annoyance of Rod Steiger, who took the whole thing very seriously.
4 [in 2008, on acting roles] There aren't a lot when you get to be my age if you refuse to have facelifts. They'd run me out of Montana! You don't need a facelift in Montana.
5 I think the "curse of Superman (1978)" stuff is nonsense. I think it's just nonsense! The reality is if you get any group of people and you statistically say get a group of 100 people, X number is gonna have some sort of calamity in their life 'cause that's what life is.
6 [on Superman IV: The Quest for Peace (1987) A noble attempt at saying something about the nuclear proliferation on the planet through Superman. Unfortunately the script was just dreadful. I mean there's no two ways about it, that script was terrible. And there's that old saying in Hollywood - you can make a bad movie out of a good script, but you can't make a good movie out of a bad script. And I don't think it had a chance from the get-go.
7 What happened to me--the biggest nervous breakdown in history, bar possibly Vivien Leigh's--is not so uncommon. I've had thousands of supportive letters from all over the world. It's just that mine was public. If you're gonna fall apart, do it in your own bedroom.
8 With any group of people in life, sad things happen, and crazy things, and happy things. When you're in the public eye, it's just amplified, that's all. There's no curse.
9 It was a wonderful time to be young. The 1960s didn't end until about 1976. We all believed in Make Love Not War - we were idealistic innocents, darling, despite the drugs and sex. We were sweet lovely people who wanted to throw out all the staid institutions who placed money and wars above all else. When you're young you think that's how life works. None of us were famous, we were broke. We didn't think they'd be writing books about us in 30 years. We were just kids doing the right thing.
10 The thing about being famous is, first of all, it's weird. The only people who get how weird it is are other famous people. So there's this unspoken club where you go, and say to each other: 'Oh God, if they only knew how ordinary I was, they wouldn't be interested.'
11 It was exciting, but for a while being typecast as Lois made my vanity and narcissism scream. Hadn't people seen my other work? But now my grandkids watch it, and think I was Superman's friend, so that's a thrill.
12 I guess I came to terms with my demons. Or else I'd be in big trouble, wouldn't I? Horrifying as it was to crack up in the public eye, it made me look at myself and fix it. People were exploitative; that's human nature. I'll tell you, being pretty crazy while being chased by the National Enquirer is not good. The British tabloids were the worst. But you take the cards you're dealt, and I got better. I'm now ferociously healthy in body and mind. You couldn't pay me to go near a psychiatrist again. Stopping seeing them was my first step to getting well.
13 My grandson sees me as Lois on TV every Christmas, and that scores me points.
14 Acting's fun, but life's more important.
15 God, [George W. Bush] makes me want to slash my wrists. He's so embarrassing I have to leave the room when he's on the news. What a monkey.
16 Nudity in the flesh doesn't bother me. But having my mind uncovered - that scares the hell out of me.
17 I suppose that if you want to be famous and suddenly it happens and you don't like it, it's nobody's fault but your own.
