His 92-year-old grandmom still owns big cats

Dakota Johnson on The Graham Norton show revealed that their 90-year grandmother(who is now 92) still owns big cats. 

She said her grandmom Tippi Hedren still owns 13 or 14 lions and tigers. She said there used to be sixty cats before, but there are just a couple now. 

By the time she was born, they were all in huge compounds and it was a lot safer, and it wasn’t as totally psycho as it was when they first started. 

But her mom Melanie Griffith did not have an ordinary childhood. She grew up with lions, tigers, and two elephants.

Growing up with the big cats, there was also a big risk. Hedren also admitted regretting letting a fully-grown lion live with the family and that she would never have taken those risks. 

The 1981 film Roar co-staring Tippi Hedren, her then-husband Noel Marshall, and daughter Melanie was one of the most dangerous films ever made because they used the real lions, tigers, leopards, cougars, jaguars, and a 10,000-pound bull elephant named Timbo

The director Noel Marshall and Tippi first got the idea of directing Roar after visiting a game preserve in Mozambique. Then they visited the house inhabited by thirty lions. 

The ex-couple started raising lion cubs in 1971 at their residential home in Sherman Oaks, California

Since the film used real animals, mauling was frequent on the set of Roar, which led Hedren and Griffith to be hospitalized. 

Hedren, in her memoir, recalled a moment when Griffith, at one point, did quit the film, saying she didn’t want to come out of that with a half face. 

However, she returned to set but was so severe that she had to undergo reconstructive facial surgery, while Hedren developed gangrene after Timbo, the elephant, crushed her leg between the trunk and tusk. 

She was also bitten at the back of her head by a lion and had her leg fractured after Timbo threw her while she was riding. 

Marshall’s son John Marshall who was also in the film, had to receive 56 stitches after the lion bit his head. 

During an interview, Marshall said that his father was a f**king a**hole to do that to his family. 

The film ended with 70 on-set injuries. Hedren later admitted to saying that no one was killed.
