MARGOT Kidder is on the mend after being admitted to a Sydney hospital with pneumonia on Tuesday.
The veteran Superman star spent a night at St Vincent’s Hospital after tour promoters for the Supanova Pop Culture Expo became concerned that her health had deteriorated following her arrival in Australia last Thursday.

The 64-year-old actress spent the first day of her 10-day Australian tour conducting media interviews in Sydney before attending day one of Supernova on Saturday.

On Sunday she cancelled her scheduled appearance at the convention after taking to her bed with the flu.

A doctor prescribed antibiotics and bed rest, said promoter/tour manager Scott Liston yesterday.

“She was run down and, combined with the Sydney wet weather, she just went under,” Liston said. “We thought she would recover, but by Tuesday she was worse.”

After finding Kidder’s condition had deteriorated ahead of a planned flight to Melbourne that day, Liston said her Sydney minders decided it would be prudent to take her to hospital rather than back to the doctor: “They diagnosed a mild case of pneumonia and said that, as she was famous, they would like to keep her in overnight.”

Liston expected the actress to be released yesterday.

Kidder, who played Lois Lane in the 1978 Superman film starring Christopher Reeve, has a history of substance abuse and depression.

Liston said Kidder would return to her Supernova commitments before flying out of Australia next week
