During a recent sitdown with Fox News, the 90-year-old actress stated that she was maintaining a close connection with her daughter, Melanie Griffith, and granddaughter through constant phone calls.

Tippi was previously honored by the Women in Film and Video in Washington, D.C., in 1991 as a "Woman of Vision."

 

Although she has no internet access due to fire outbreaks around her home, she has learned how to fill her time up with movies and television shows. "The Birds" star told Fox News that:

"I'm re-watching my favorite show, "The Bold and the Beautiful," that I had previously taped and the History or Animal channels."

Tippi gained global recognition when film director, Alfred Hitchcock, cast her in the 1963 American thriller film, "The Birds." 

According to Britannica, the film focused on a small northern California seaside town that was rendered helpless after an attack by massive flocks of destructive birds.

Although she went on to feature in other movies, they failed to bring her the same level of recognition that "The Birds" did. Some of those films, according to Biography, include "Pacific Heights," "Citizen Ruth," and "I Heart Huckabees."

Tippi also earned some television credits with her appearances in shows like "Murder, She Wrote," "CSI," "Chicago Hope," and "Cougar Town."

Luckily, her contributions to the film world have been honored with several awards, including a Life Achievement award in France during The Beauvais Film Festival Cinemalia 1994; in Spain. 

She was similarly awarded by The Fundacion Municipal De Cine in 1995 and at the Riverside International Film Festival later in 2007. 

Tippi was previously honored by the Women in Film and Video in Washington, D.C., in 1991 as a "Woman of Vision." The 90-year-old star has also received the Presidential Medal for her work in film from Hofstra University.

According to IMDB, Tippi enjoys spending time with her daughter and three grandchildren, Alexander Bauer, Stella Banderas, and Dakota Johnson.
