Nathalie “Tippi” Hedren (New Ulm, Minnesota, January 19, 1930) is an American actress, whose image is associated with Hitchcock’s film The Birds.
She was discovered by Alfred Hitchcock, who saw her in an advertisement for a diet drink when she was looking for a blonde actress, out of the ordinary and who looked like Grace Kelly, since the relationship with the latter cooled down after the prosperous mutual work realized in mythical films like the indiscreet window (1954) and perfect Crime (1954). Hedren starred in Hitchcock’s films The Birds (1963) and Marnie the Thief (1964). Until then he earned his living as an advertising model.

Working with Hitchcock

The appearance, elegance and femininity of Hedren turned out to be a successful choice of the director of suspense for this film.
The filming was very hard and dangerous, according to Hedren’s own story; as an example, during the recording of the last scene in which the birds attack, Hitchcock forced her to repeat the scene numerous times while they were throwing real wood birds at her. One of them hit Hedren’s eye and caused a retinal spill even.

She had to be taken to the emergency room. However, this hardness was rewarded when she won the Golden Globe for the revelation actress.
The following year, he stars, also under the direction of Hitchcock, the movie Marnie, the thief. After this film, and due in large part to the controlling obsession of Hitchcock, who even tried to direct Hedren’s professional career, manifesting a sexual harassment, because of this the relationship between the director and the actress cooled off (similar to the Grace Kelly case). According to the actress, Hitchcock sent her a final note telling her that she was going to ruin her career.
– “As they say in Hollywood, my name was hot [to be nominated for an Oscar]. But he told me he would ruin my career and he did it. He was one of the most powerful men in Hollywood and he got his way “,
– “It was a very uncomfortable situation that had nothing to do with love. I was the object of an obsession in which I was not interested. He followed me, analyzed my writing, stalked me. That was not love “
