It is really interesting, though, what you perceive as your wounds can later on turn into the biggest gifts you have. At the time, I was like, ‘Man I’ve got to toughen up, get a thicker skin,’ whereas in fact, being sensitive and thin-skinned and all the things I still am, lends itself to a career as an actor.

After a trip to Africa, actress Tippi Hedren, her husband Noel Marshall, and their actress daughter Melanie Griffith, wanted to make a movie about lions. At the advice of Ron Oxley, an animal trainer who said that “to get to know about lions, you’ve got to live with them for a while,” they had Neil the lion live with them. Their life was documented by LIFE photographer Michael Rougier.
