Tippi Hedren – Dakota Johnson

More often than not, a success story starts with humble beginnings. Such was the case with Tippi Hedren, who had her first modeling gigs in department store fashion shows. After some time, she got the attention of famous filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock, who then gave her a role in two of his acclaimed films: 1963’s The Birds and Marnie, released the following year. Her daughter, Melanie Griffith, also established a career in acting.

Through Melanie, Tippi is the grandmother of actress Dakota Johnson. She got her first on-screen appearance when she was ten years old, appearing in 1999’s Crazy in Alabama, starring her mama Melanie. After a couple of stints as a model and actress, Dakota got her first shot to fame with a role in 2012’s 21 Jump Street. Since then, she has dabbled in other investments, though she is undoubtedly most known for her work in films like Black MassSuspiria, and Bad Times at the El Royale.
