Tippi Hedren, Melanie Griffith and Dakota Johnson would star together in a movie, embodying the same woman in her different life stages. Griffith popped up the idea during an interview to Vanity Fair.
Tippi Hedren, Melanie Griffith and Dakota Johnson are the living proof that the acting talent is inherited genetically. The three generations of women have been in the Hollywood limelight since the 1960s. 86-year-old Hedren is Melanie Griffith’s mother and Dakota Johnson’s grandmother. She sums almost 55 years in the industry.
“The three generations just made me think about Mom, born in 1930, and me, in the ’50s, and Dakota, in the ’80s”, says 59-year-old Griffith to Vanity Fair, calling the progression of life “really beautiful”.
The three women, all wearing glam gowns for the magazine’s photo shoot, reveal that, even though they are all sharing the same career path, they never turned to each other for acting advice, nor they bring it up into discussion when they are together. “Isn’t that interesting?”, Hedren said.
What is, interesting, in a non-rhetorical way, is Griffith’s idea of the trio being cast in a movie where they would play the same character. “We could all be the whole life of a woman”, the actress said. And it would truly be a beautiful idea, seeing that they share such similar physical features, an aspect that would confer a movie an authenticity hard to reach otherwise.
Tippi Hedren, originally a model, has been discovered by Alfred Hitchcock in 1961 and cast in one of his most iconic productions, The Birds, in 1963. She is still acting.
Melanie Griffith debuted in Night Moves, in 1975 and gained popularity through her role in Body Double, in 1984. Her latest movie is The Masterpiece, which is scheduled to premiere in 2017.
Dakota Johnson, 27, debuted on the big screen in 1999 in the comedy Crazy in Alabama, but rose to fame in 2015, after starring in Fifty Shades of Grey.
