Actress Tippi Hedren says, she hasn't felt any taste or smell
for ten long years. The Birds actress says that due to absence of
the sense of taste or smell, she cannot enjoy her meals.
She says that her two accidental falls, during which she had hit
her head badly in the same place, is the reason for her
"I have no sense of taste or smell anymore, so I don't care
about food. I had two falls and hit my head in the same place,
which affected my olfactory nerves. It was over 10 years ago. I
love chocolate but that's because I loved chocolate before," said
Tippi Hedren also termed her condition as very dangerous and
unfortunate. She had removed all the gas-fuelled appliances from
her home, as she would not be able to find out any leakage if
there, at home.
"It's dangerous having no smell though because I cant smell
smoke. I've had all the gas appliances taken out of the house."
The actress is happy that her daughter and granddaughter have
chosen to be actors. However, Tippi said she didn't suggest her
daughter Melanie about it in anyway.
"I didn't suggest it to her, she just came home one day and
said, 'Mum, I'm going to be in a movie,' " said Tippi.
