How did your family react?
Melanie [Griffith, Hedren’s daughter] was really little then. And I tried to shield my parents from it. In fact, at the screening of “The Girl,” after the movie was over, nobody moved. Nobody talked. They were stunned. Until Melanie jumped up and said; “Well now I have to go back into therapy!” And that, of course, started everyone talking again.
How was it for you to watch “The Girl”?
It was probably one of the most involved, emotionally tense 90 minutes that I have ever lived.
