New York, Aug 3 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Veteran actress Tippi Hedren has alleged that the legendary director Alfred Hitchcock ruined her career but not her life.
The actress who is 82 years of age said that if sexual harassment laws were effective in the 1960’s, she would now be a rich woman. The veteran actress is adamant that the legendary director ruined her career when she refused to bow to his advances. However, she is quick to reiterate that he never ruined her life. The comments come as the production of her controversial relationship with the director is wrapping up.
Timpi Hedren spoke of the many sexual harassment encounters that she encountered when she joined popular cast of ‘The Girl’.
