BUTTE, Mont., Aug 19, 2005 (United Press International via COMTEX) -- Canadian-born actress Margot Kidder has become a U.S. citizen so she can protest the government's Iraqi policies without worrying about deportation.

Kidder, who skyrocketed to fame as Lois Lane in the Christopher Reeves "Superman" movies, took the citizenship oath Wednesday in Butte, Mont., the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reports.

Kidder, 56, has lived in the United States for 34 years and has a home in Livingston, Mont., the CBC said.

The actress was born in Yellowknife in 1948 and raised in Vancouver.

Kidder reportedly said her only motivation in becoming a citizen of the United States was to be able to protest the war in Iraq without getting kicked out of the country, the CBC said.
