Dakota Johnson had a special plus-one for the premiere of her latest movie Suspiria – her 88-year-old actress grandmother Tippi Hedren.
Actress Tippi Hedren rocked the world earlier this year when she spoke out about how film director Alfred Hitchcock abused her on set. When directly asked about the sexual assault claims, Hedren says the harassment of women is commonplace and wanted to raise awareness about being pressured by men. “I did it because this is legion all over the world,” she said. Women complain all the time about somebody trying to make a pass at them or have a relationship in which they are not interested.
Actress Tippi Hedren has claimed that she was sexually assaulted by the director Alfred Hitchcock when she worked with him in the 1960s. “It was an awful, awful moment,” she writes, adding that she felt powerless to tell anyone about the alleged advances because ‘sexual harassment and stalking were terms that didn’t exist’ at that time.
