Dakota Johnson Remembers Growing Up With Grandmother Tippi Hedren's Tigers & Lions

Dakota Johnson is opening up about what it was like knowing her grandmother, The Birds actress Tippi Hedren, had lions and tigers in her home.

The 30-year-old star chatted during an interview with Graham Norton about the big cats her grandmother and grandfather, Peter Griffith, had in their home. Dakota‘s mom Melanie Griffith, grew up alongside them all.

“She has 13 or 14 lions and tigers [now],” she shared. “But there used to be like 60 cats. But now, there’s just a couple.”

Dakota added that “by the time I was born they were all in huge compounds and it was safer. It wasn’t as totally psycho as it was when they first started.”

There’s a famous article of Tippi and her family with the big cats. It was published in 1971.

Just recently, Dakota opened up about how to deal with anxiety during quarantine.
