Melanie Griffith surprised with her teenage photo

62-year-old Melanie Griffith shared with subscribers an archival photo, in which she is 13 years old. In the photo, young Melanie is captured next to a huge lion.

When I was 13 my best friend was a lion

– she wrote in the microblog. But the actress dedicated the publication not to a predatory friend at all, but to the upcoming presidential elections in the United States.

Big cats shouldn’t show their fear. So I had to be strong with him. It left an imprint on me, I was not afraid. But I am afraid for our country, for our democracy. I will stand up for our beautiful America. I will vote!

– Griffith continued.

Earlier, Melanie Griffith’s daughter, actress Dakota Johnson, also said that she grew up surrounded by lions. The fact is that Melanie’s parents kept predators at home. Tippy Hedren, Dakota’s grandmother, is an actress, activist, and animal rights activist.

She now has 13 or 14 lions and tigers. And before it was about 60. By the time I was born, they were in their own fenced area, and it was safe. It wasn’t as crazy as it was before me

– shared Dakota.
