Being a celebrity offers many opportunities, but one of the most important is the chance to help those in need. Each month I'll focus on different causes and organizations. Please join me; together we can make a difference. Melanie Griffith was born on August 9, 1957, in New York City to model Tippi Hedren and advertising executive and sometime actor Peter Griffith. Her parents' marriage ended in 1961 and Tippi came to Los Angeles to get a new start. Tippi caught the eye of the great director Alfred Hitchcock, who gave her starring roles in The Birds (1963) and Marnie (1964). Tippi married her second husband, agent Noel Marshall, in 1964, and Melanie grew up with three stepbrothers. Melanie also grew up with tigers and lions, as Tippi and Noel were raising them for the movie Roar (1981), in which the family later starred. Her career began as a model at just nine months old and she later appeared as an extra in Smith! (1969) and The Harrad Experiment (1973), where she fell in love with her mother's co-star, Don Johnson. She was only fourteen years old, while he was a twice-divorced 22-year-old. Tippi took a very liberal approach and allowed Melanie to move in with Don at a tender age. As precocious in academics as she was in life, she skipped a grade and graduated from Hollywood Professional School when she was just sixteen. Even though Melanie didn't like modeling, she continued to do so to pay the bills. One day she went to meet with director Arthur Penn for what she thought was a modeling assignment. It was actually an audition for his film Night Moves (1975), and Penn gave her the role of a runaway nymphet. She didn't really want to be an actress, but Johnson encouraged her to do it. She agreed but was terrified of performing in front of the camera. Penn took a paternal interest in her, and she felt confident and gave a riveting performance, doing racy nude scenes. The film got her attention, and it immediately typecast her and led to more nymphet roles, with her beautiful nude body a permanent fixture in most of these films. She married Don Johnson, but it ended shortly after-wards, possibly because her early movie success outshone his. The birth of her first child, Alexander, in 1985, didn't help to save her struggling marriage, and she and Bauer divorced shortly there after. Melanie reconciled briefly with first husband Don Johnson, and he directed her in a guest appearance on his hit TV series "Miami Vice" (1984) in 1987, before they again went their separate ways. Melanie's career skyrocketed when Mike Nichols cast her in the title role of Working Girl (1988), a box-office hit for which she received an Academy Award nomination as Best Actress and won the Golden Globe Award as Best Actress in a Comedy. However, her ongoing substance abuse problems almost destroyed her career yet again, and Nichols pushed her into a rehabilitation clinic. En route to the clinic, she called ex-husband Johnson for support, and they reconciled after her release from the clinic. She got pregnant and they remarried in 1989, and soon thereafter their daughter Dakota Johnson was born. Since 1996 she has been married to Antonio Banderas, and the couple has one daughter.
