Do you believe in ghosts? What scares you? How are you celebrating Halloween? We want to know!!! Tippi Hedren, star of Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Birds”, gives us all of her favorite Halloween memories…
1. LKL Blog: What is your favorite Halloween memory and why?
Tippi: I had a Halloween party for [daughter] Melanie [Griffith] and her friends when she was about 8 and while they were having their lunch I snuck around to the window in my witch outfit and scared the daylights out of them. Melanie still remembers this.
2. LKL Blog: What is your favorite scary movie and why?
Tippi: The Exorcist – My ex husband, Noel Marshall, was the Executive Producer and I read it as the script was being written. In fact, I remember elbowing Noel one night and saying that he had to get this thing produced. Demons have been know to take over humans for century's. The movie depicted this in such a vivid way that I haven’t been able to watch it again, since it came out.
3. LKL Blog: Favorite Halloween candy?
Tippi: It may sound so stupid but I love candy corn.
3. LKL Blog: What is your favorite Halloween costume?
Tippi: I like dressing up as a witch. Sometimes a good witch and sometimes an evil witch. There are times I can relate more to Elphaba than Glinda. My mode of transportation is not a broom, but a feather duster. Seems more glamorous to me.
4. LKL Blog: Do you believe in ghosts? Any ghost sightings or experiences?
Tippi: Absolutely I do! In fact, I think I have had a ghost in my house. Although not active lately, unexplainable things would happen and the kitties were particularly sensitive – especially, Marlon Brando ... the cat not the man.
5. LKL Blog: What scares you?
Tippi: Spiders! Honest to God, all my life I have had such a fear of spiders. In fact, I use to have a reoccurring dream about one. Very clearly, it was black with a red head. It would sit up in the corner of the bedroom and when it started getting closer, I would wake up in a panic.
