During an at-home appearance onThe Graham Norton Show, the actress spoke about her famous grandmother's passion for saving wild animals. When Norton asked if she still owned big cats, Johnson replied: "Yes, she has 13 or 14 lions and tigers." While that may sound like a lot, it's only a fraction of Hedren's former brood. "There used to be like 60 cats, and now there's just a couple," explained Johnson. 

Norton then shared vintage photographs of Hedren with the cats, including one of a giant tiger jumping through the kitchen window. "Classic," Dakota joked about the absurdity of the image, adding: "Happens to me all the time." There was also a snap of Dakota's mom Melanie Griffith as a child jumping into a swimming pool while a lion grabbed her leg in the air. "She didn't lose the leg," Johnson confirmed.
