Jennifer Gray talks about her nose jobs, Patrick Swayze, and 'Dirty Dancing' sequel

Jennifer Gray talks about her nose jobs, Patrick Swayze, and ‘Dirty Dancing’ sequel

“But when I was a kid, I was totally against rhinoplasty. I mean it was like my religion,” She told People magazine.“I loved that my dad did it [underwent rhinoplasty]. I understand it was the fifties. I understand that they were accommodating.”

Gray said her mother was the first to suggest that she get her nose job done. When she finally did, years later, she no longer looked like the woman best known for starring in the hit film Dirty Dancing in 1987.

Gray said that she and co-star Patrick Swayze are not “natural matches” in real life, and this caused some tension that fueled the film’s characters.

“I just thought about Patrick,” she said of Swayze. He died of pancreatic cancer at the age of 57 in 2009. “I feel like if I could say anything to him now, I’d say, ‘I’m so sorry I couldn’t just appreciate and enjoy who I was, instead of wishing you were what I wanted you to be. “

She said she’s been working on the script for the “Dirty Dancing” sequel for years, and that she’d like to get some of the magic of the original script and translate it for a new audience.

“People today think their identity is limited, and the world has told them what it is,” Gray said. “But there are some people who can see other parts of you. ‘Dirty Dancing’ was a fairy tale, a movie and a hit format, where it uses dance as a metaphor to personify your energy and get out of your head, and your limited belief systems.”
