A poster from the movie “Dirty Dancing”
Many of the movie personalities of 1980 found it difficult to believe but Dirty Dancing has been a favourite of movie fans the world over for more than three decades. The movie was first released in 1987 and it was assumed to be a flop even by the main actors and producers behind it. But to everyone’s surprise, this amazing tale of love against all odds became a runaway hit. The movie was made with a very tiny budget and starred actors such as
Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey.

Rhodes and Jane Brucker. There was a time when even the creational team felt that they had made a very big mistake by producing and creating this movie to the extent that they were ready to put on the film reels of this movie. This incident was reported by the Mirror. Contrary to the creational team’s expectations, the movie contributed to the most legendary scenes in the cinema’s history of Hollywood. Dirty dancing lift is one of the most recreated moves at weddings and features in many events across the globe. The movie’s success affirmed the promised future of its star cast in the film industry. But the question is what happened to the star cast of Dirty Dancing? The star cast life headed to tragic drugs incidents, shocking surgery and fatal accidents. Sarah Jessica Parker and Sharon Stone both had portrayed strong characters that were slightly cheeky but ambitious enough to bring change in the world. But ultimately, the whole spotlight was credited to Jennifer Grey who was 27 at that time and played the role of a 17-year-old Baby. People loved Jennifer’s on- screen chemistry with Patrick Swayze. But Jennifer dashed the hopes of her fans by admitting that the intense chemistry was a result of clashes between the two backstage. Jennifer Grey said, “The thing is that I believe tension is much hotter- looking than just love.
And I think there was a very complex dynamic between Patrick and myself for the whole movie”,You know you see a cartoon and there is a fight and just you can’t tell who’s who and it’s just a ball, it was a little like that with him and me. Jennifer’s career was about to scale great heights but her wrongly done nose job made her unrecognisable to audiences which ultimately led to her downfall.
Jennifer was barely recognisable after the nose job. Jennifer narrated her experience in 2012,”I went into the operating room as a celebrity and came out anonymous. It was the nose job from hell. I’ll always be this once-famous actress nobody recognises because of a nose job”.
