Canadian actress Margot Kidder became a U.S. citizen Wednesday in Butte, Montana.

Kidder, who played Lois Lane in the Superman movies, said she did it to avoid possible deportation to Canada when she begins protesting the war in Iraq.

Kidder, 56, has lived in the United States for 34 years and has a residence in Livingston, Montana.

Kidder said her sole motivation was to protest the war in Iraq.

The actress was born in Yellowknife in 1948, and her family later moved to Vancouver.

In 1996 she made headlines when she was discovered in a delusional state in a Los Angeles neighbourhood. She later talked of her battles with manic depression.
