In a statement, Park County, Montana coroner Richard Wood said Kidder "died as a result of a self-inflicted drug and alcohol overdose".
Kidder's daughter, Maggie McGuane - during a chat with the Associated Press - said she and the rest of their family wanted to be honest about her death to avoid the "cloud of shame". "It's a big relief that the truth is out there", McGuane tole the news agency.
Kidder was famously outspoken and candid about mental illness and her struggles with bipolar disorder after making headlines in 1996 when she disappeared for four days and was found in a backyard in Glendale, California. She reprised the high-profile role in the three more films in the franchise.
She says it's a unique sort of grief and pain and that she would like to reach out to every family who is suffering through a loss by suicide. She was also a political activist who was arrested in Washington in 2011 at a protest over the proposed Keystone XL pipeline.
Both Kidder and co-star Christopher Reeve, who played Superman, were relative unknowns when they got their leading parts, and neither saw many major roles afterwards.
Kidder and other environmentalists protest outside the White House in Washington in August 2011. In one of her final interviews, with the pop culture site Hey U Guys in 2016, Kidder said that she never anticipated the success of the Superman film and was unprepared for the instant worldwide stardom that it brought to her.
"In her last months, she was herself - same kind of love, same kind of energy", Kesich said. "She was really a blazing energy".
If you're anxious someone you know may be at risk of suicide, you should talk to them about it, says the Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention.
