72. 1971: Melanie Griffith and her Pet Lion
Melanie Griffith had rather the unconventional childhood; at 14 years old she began a relationship with her mother’s 22-year-old co-star whom she married in 1976 for 6 months. Her parents divorced when she was 4 years old, and she split her time between her dad in New York and her mother who formed the animal preserve Shambala in Antelope Valley, California. Her mother, Tippie Hedren, said about keeping the wild car as a pet: “we were stupid beyond belief to have that lion in our house”.
71. 1978: Tim Allen’s Mugshot
Tim Allen may be more commonly known as The Santa Clause or from Home Improvement, but he was also once a real-life drug trafficker. In 1978, Allen was arrested in the Kalamazoo-Battle Creek International Airport for Cocaine Possession. He pleaded guilty and faced life in prison but he gave the authorities the names of other traffickers for a lesser sentence! Rather than life, Aleen served 2 years and 4 months in the Federal Correctional Institution in Sandstone, Minnesota.
