About Tippi Hedren (1930 – )
Tippi Hedren was born on January 19, 1931 in New Ulm, Minnesota.

Tippi Hedren's birth name is Nathalie Hedren.

In her teens, Tippi Hedren made her film debut in the 1950 film THE PRETTY GIRL.

Alfred Hitchcock discovered Tippi Hedren while she was modeling and doing a commercial on the TODAY SHOW, in 1952. In 1963, Hitchcock cast Tippi Hedren in THE BIRDS. While filming THE BIRDS in 1963, Tippi Hedren was really cut in the face by a bird in one of the shots. Hitchcock praised her; he also told the Associated Press: "Tippi Hedren is really remarkable. She's already reaching the lows and highs of terror." For Tippi Hedren's performance in THE BIRDS, she earned a Golden Globe award.

Tippi Hedren and her first husband, Peter Griffith, are the parents of Melanie Griffith.

Devoted most of her time and effort to charitable causes; Tippi Hedren is a volunteer International Relief Coordinator for "Food for the Hungry". Tippi traveled worldwide to set up relief programs following earthquakes, hurricanes, famine and war. Tippi is founder and President of "The Roar Foundation."

At the end of shooting MR. KINGSTREET'S WAR, in 1973, Tippi Hedren discovered that the big cats used in the production had no place to go. This prompted her to obtain a parcel of land on her own to establish a home with a natural setting for retired big cats. She named it Shambala and it exists to this day.

On January 30, 2003, Tippi Hedren received a Star on Hollywood Walk of Fame.
