This gives me an opportunity to discuss some topics that interest me. Daughter shared mother’s day (10th of May) with mom at her mom’s big cat sanctuary. The photo was posted on Instagram.
Tippi Hedren is left-handed. She has left-handed looks. There is a certain appearance about left-handed people and it often comes through as attractiveness and symmetrical facial anatomy. Tippi was and still is very attractive. Hitchock was obsessed with her. A film is being made about their relationship. She was the star of two Hitchcock films, The Birds and Marnie. She may have starred in more but I forget them.
Talking about looks, Melanie Griffith has messed up her cute attractiveness with plastic surgery. She has probably had some reconstructive surgery subsequently to correct the mess of the original but it shows. What a shame.
Her mother Tippi Hedren looks better for either not having plastic surgery or having less of it.
God, I wish women would learn to accept their appearance and recognise the obvious truth that a beautiful face that has aged is even more beautiful as character patinates it. It is physical beauty enhanced by life experience. We should accept ourselves at all stages of life and women should resist the temptation and social pressure to alter their appearance with the knife.
Is there is a connection between altering appearance through plastic surgery and altering the anatomy of a cat through declawing? There may be a similar driving force or an easy acceptance of altering what nature gave us. We should accept and respect what nature gave us unless nature messed up.
The irony is that plastic surgery hardly ever works because it is nearly always overdone. The person looks unnatural and anyone can spot that in an instant.
Tippi Hedren has had what seems to be a lifelong interest in big cats. At one stage she had a lion in the house and her daughter in bed with the lion! Tippi looks back at that with horror. She admits it was a mistake.
‘We were stupid beyond belief to have that lion in our house’
Tippi advocates against keeping big cats as pets and the trade between US states of big cats. She was instrumental in the enactment of a 2003 law ending this traffic.
You probably know that Tippi Hedren has a big cat sanctuary at “Shambala” in California, north of Los Angeles. She lives there. She rescues abused big cats and receives death threats and criticism from the exotic big cat breeders and abusers. These threats prompted her daughter to ask her mom to move away from Los Angeles but she gamely stayed put.
