Dakota Johnson says HBO “should have warned” about portraying Grandma Tippi Hedren on ‘The Girl.’

Dakota Johnson has been candid about her reaction to her grandmother Tippi Hedren’s portrayal in the 2012 HBO TV movie The girl.

The film focused on The birds Star Hedren’s relationship with Alfred Hitchcock. Hedren has previously opened up about her experience of being sexually harassed by the famous filmmaker.

Johnson, who is the daughter of actors Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson vanity fair that her family should have been warned before seeing the film for the first time.

“We sat on HBO, my family, and we watched this movie together,” Johnson recalled of Sienna Miller portraying her grandmother in the 2012 film. “It was one of those moments where you just thought, ‘How could you not have warned us?’

“We’re in a room with a couple of executives. Maybe that justifies a little chat beforehand?”

The Independent has reached out to HBO for comment.

Johnson said she looked over at Hedren during the viewing and “saw a woman who just got reminded of everything she’s been through and it was heartbreaking.” “She was an amazing actress and [Hitchcock] prevented her from pursuing a career.”

When Hedren took the allegations against the director decades after his death in 2016, Hitchcock said that Hitchcock threatened to ruin her career after she rejected him. She claimed he was hellbent on destroying her name in Hollywood.

“What happened to my grandmother was terrible because Hitchcock was a bully,” Johnson said vanity fair. “He was talented and productive – and important in terms of art – but power can poison people.”

Johnson added that Hitchcock once sent her mother, Griffith, a replica of Hedren in a small coffin for Christmas.

Hedren previously compared Hitchcock to disgraced film producer Harvey Weinstein. “I look at all the coverage of Weinstein,” the actor said in 2017. “This is nothing new, nor is it limited to the entertainment industry.

“During my modeling and film career, I was constantly confronted with sexual harassment. Hitchcock wasn’t the first.”
