Melanie Griffith expressed gratitude that her mother is “still with us,” as she captioned the photo on Instagram.

She worked with lions, tigers, and other large animals for the first time in the 1981 film “Roar,” which has been called one of the most perilous films ever filmed.

In 1983, Hedren launched the non-profit Roar Foundation and constructed the Shambala Preserve refuge in Acton, California to keep 100 lions and other large cats from the film.

During an interview on “The Graham Norton Show” in 2020, Hedren’s granddaughter Dakota Johnson claimed that the “Birds” actress still resides at Shambala with many large felines.

On November 16, 1983, in Saugus, California, Tippi Hedren speaks on her mobile phone close to a lion at her animal reserve.

“She has thirteen or fourteen lions and tigers. There used to be around sixty cats, but now there are only a few,” said Johnson, 33.

The actress of “50 Shades of Grey” is the 72-year-old daughter of Griffith and Don Johnson.

In 1976, the Academy Award candidate and the former “Miami Vice” cast member were married for six months.

They remarried in 1989, but eventually divorced in 1994.

Griffith also has a 37-year-old son with her ex-husband, 65-year-old Steven Bauer, to whom she was married from 1981 until 1989.

The “Working Girl” actress and Banderas, 62, are the 26-year-old parents of Stella. In 2015, the former couple divorced after 18 years of marriage.

On January 30, 2003, Tippi Hedren and Melanie Griffith attended the dedication ceremony for Hedren’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Hollywood, California.

Griffith maintains cordial relationships with all of her ex-spouses. In 2018, she told InStyle magazine, “I adore all three of my spouses, and we are quite close.”

Monday, Griffith published a slideshow of images from her Thanksgiving celebrations, which featured images of Johnson and his wife Kelly Phleger.

She captioned the slideshow, “A lot of family moments.” “Thankful for each and every one. Love, memories, and laughter.”
