Jennifer Grey of Dirty Dancing is in our thoughts

With a new Dirty Dancing picture in the works, Jennifer Grey may be returning to the part that made her an international celebrity.

When she starred as Frances “Baby” Houseman alongside Patrick Swayze in the film Frances “Baby” Houseman 33 years ago, the 60-year-old actress became a global celebrity.

Jennifer will star in and executive produce an untitled dance film she is working on with Lionsgate.

Because Lionsgate owns the distribution rights to the Dirty Dancing pictures, many fans have speculated that this new initiative could be a sequel.

Although it is widely thought that the sequel will continue the story of the cult blockbuster, this has not been verified.

The new film will be set in the 1990s, whereas the original was set in the Catskills in 1963.

This has fueled conjecture that Jennifer’s next film will be a Dirty Dancing sequel.

Unfortunately, Jennifer’s co-star Patrick died in 2009 from pancreatic cancer.

Fans are hoping that Jennifer, who previously claimed that she does not want to be a part of the Dirty Dancing franchise, has reconsidered.

Prior to Dirty Dancing, Jennifer and Patrick had previously appeared on the big screen together. In 1984, the actor and the duet co-starred in Red Dawn.

She rose to notoriety after appearing in the box office sensation Ferris Bueller’s Day Off as Matthew Broderick’s sister.

Jennifer and Matthew were Hollywood’s most beautiful couple in the months leading up to the Dirty Dancing premiere. After meeting on stage, they became friends.

However, only nine days before the film’s premiere, she was in a horrific car accident in Ireland while on vacation.

Mother and daughter Anna Gallagher and Margaret Doherty were killed instantly in the head-on collision, and Jennifer and Matthew were critically injured.

Jennifer had severe whiplash and tore ligaments in the back of her neck, while he suffered a shattered leg, a ruptured lung, and a concussion.

Broderick was found guilty of hazardous driving and punished for being in the incorrect lane at the time of the incident.

Jennifer would suffer from chronic pain for the rest of her life as a result of the tragedy, and she would be unable to dance for an extended period of time.

The woman stated that she tried massage, hot pads, cold packs, anti-inflammatories, and everything else that would provide relief.

The actor endured serious long-term affects after being unable to act for several years following the disaster due to the emotional toll.

Jennifer then made a decision in the early 1990s that, in her opinion, altered the rest of her career.

She underwent two nose surgeries, the second to correct complications induced by the first.

The actress claimed that because to the drastic transformation, several of her close friends were unable to recognize her.

“I went in as a superstar and came out as a nobody,” Jennifer explained. “It was similar to being under witness protection or going unnoticed.”

The actress considered changing her name to jumpstart her career.

Jennifer married actor Clark Gregg in 2001, after dating various celebrities such as Michael J. Fox and Johnny Depp.

Jennifer participated on the American version of Strictly Come Dancing, Dancing With The Stars, in 2009.

Jennifer underwent surgery to repair her compressed spinal cord and stable her neck.

“I’d been in pain for so long that I didn’t realize how much control it had over my life,” she continued.

“I gave up several of my favorite hobbies, such as dancing, since I didn’t want the pain to get worse.”

During her surgery, however, physicians discovered a small malignant node on her thyroid, which is cause for concern.

Jennifer hasn’t had cancer since the tumor was removed.

Jennifer went through a lot, but she and her professional partner, Derek Hough, went on to win Dancing With The Stars’ 11th season.

Because of her popularity on the show, she was chosen to fill in for head judge Len Goodman on Strictly Come Dancing in 2011.

Jennifer has continued to work as an actor despite her early popularity, taking on supporting roles in films and prominent television series such as House and Grey’s Anatomy.

With the release of a new Dirty Dancing film, Jennifer appears to be on the approach of re-establishing herself as a significant force in Hollywood.

On a mere $5 million budget, the first film grossed a stunning $218 million worldwide.

Furthermore, Frank Previte’s original song, I’ve Had the Time of My Life, was nominated for an Oscar and a Golden Globe.

Jennifer was nominated for a Golden Globe for her performance in the film Baby.
