Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze shared some of the most sizzling film scenes of all time when they worked together in Dirty Dancing.
Rumours say that the pair didn’t get on well at all, and wouldn’t talk to each other outside of takes. However, you couldn’t tell when watching their chemistry on screen!
Sadly Patrick Swayze passed away in September 2009, but Jennifer Grey is now 59-years-old and still working as an actress.
Grey opened up, on a rare occasion, to The Hollywood Reporter about her relationship with Patrick. Talking about her time working with the late star, Jennifer gave a small insight into her experience of getting up-close and personal with Patrick Swayze.
“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.”
Grey has her own ideas about what made the duo such a great on-screen partnership. “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.
What we would have given to dance with Patrick Swayze! You’re a lucky woman Jennifer…
