'The Birds' actress says Alfred Hitchcock was a total creepster8/3/2012
OK, we admit that when we saw Tippi Hedren's name trending, we thought she'd died. Whew. The 82-year-old actress was just discussing her creepier-than-we-thought experiences working with legendary director Alfred Hitchcock. Describing him as "evil and deviant," Hedren says Hitchcock tormented and harassed her during the filming of "The Birds," making unwanted sexual advances toward her and punishing her for refusing. (In true Hitchcock fashion, he allegedly retaliated by trying to scare the sh*t out of her with prop birds.) "He ruined my career, but he didn't ruin my life," a defiant Hedren says. Her unsettling encounters will be depicted in "The Girl," an upcoming HBO movie starring Sienna Miller as Hedren. [Source]
