    Default Melanie Griffith and her pet lion

    Here's a bunch of photos of Melanie Griffith and her "pet" lion. Her mom and stepfather were doing a film on the big cats after returning from Africa. It was suggested one live with them. These are amazing.

    Those are great pictures. I wouldn't lie down with a lion though. Too risky.

    Melanie really should have left her face alone. I always thought she was cute back in the day. Oh, and I think that second pic is her mom, Tippi Hedren.

    They're great pics, but I thought I remembered that Melanie was mauled by a lion. Found this:

    During production, Tippi’s daughter Melanie, 19 years old at the time, was attacked by a lioness and needed 50 stitches to the face. The director of photography was scalped.
    “They are dangerous. Everyone in my family has been hurt, so I’m aware of the dangers that exist with [all wild] animals, ” said Tippi at the time, who also had her arm severely scratched by a leopard, and was was bitten on the chest by a mountain lion.Although this did not deter Tippi from dedicating her life to the animals, she now takes a different view on the idea of wild animals in the home and believes they should not be kept as pets.

    They are beautiful creatures. Best left in the wild.

    Gross. That lion swam in that water too, and Tippi is spitting it out from her mouth...I love the big cats, but from a respectable distance. Preferably with a continent or some steel bars between us.

    Beautiful toothless creature, Melanie looks fuller as a teen than she does now

    these are amazing. i'd already seen the one of melanie in bed with the lion but didn't know where they were from and i didn't realise it was melanie griffith in the picture.

    Yeah but it's fucked up to look at them and know she was fucking mauled by the lion later...

    Tippi just seems like she made a lot of bad decisions in raising her all around. Lions in bed and shacking up with Don Johnson at what was it, 14 or 15?

    Wow, young Melanie and young Nicole Kidman could have been twins (at least from the 1st and 3rd picture in OP).

    Agreed. Big cats are NOT pets. Even though they are just over grown kitty cats. (i.e., the 3rd pic). Over grown kitty cats who will eat you.
