Must See 21/08/2019

Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze shared some of the most sizzling film scenes of all time when they worked together in Dirty Dancing, 32 years ago today.

The pair rocketed to stardom thanks to the movie, that was predicted to be a flop.

Years after the film Dirty Dancing was released, rumours began swirling revealing that Jennifer Grey (Baby) and Patrick Swayze (Johnny) didn't get on at all during filming of the iconic film.

Last year, Jennifer Grey who is now 59 and still working as an actress, opened up to The Hollywood Reporter about her relationship with Patrick. 

And it turns out the rumours weren't quite accurate.

“It was our second movie we’d done together within a short time,” the actress explained. “We did Red Dawn first and then Dirty Dancing. He was a great dancer and he was fearless.” she said.

“His fearlessness with my fearfulness…together was like a marriage where you have two opposites” she mused. “He’d do anything and I’d be scared to do anything.”

It seems like a 27-year-old Jennifer Grey couldn’t help but fall for Patrick Swayze’s charms, despite previously admitting she found his penchant for playing pranks on the cast annoying! “He smelled really good, his skin was really nice” the actress confessed. “He was really strong and he was very protective and his heart was very much in it,” she said.
