Jennifer Grey remembers Patrick Swayze fondly.  She described memories of her Dirty Dancing co-star; "When I think of him, I think of being in his arms when we were kids, dancing, practicing the lift in the freezing lake, having a blast doing this tiny little movie we thought no one would ever see."  Grey has starred in several films since then, but none became is popular or iconic as Dirty Dancing.  Actress Jennifer Grey starred alongside Patrick Swayze in Dirty Dancing.
After Dirty Dancing, Jennifer Grey was romantically involved with both Matthew Broderick and Johnny Depp before ultimately marrying film director Clark Gregg.  She had their first daughter in December of 2001.

Jennifer Grey had plastic surgery in the early 1990s and accidentally but drastically changed her appearance.  She later tried to repair damages done by the surgery, but never regained her original look.  Grey once commented on the impact of the botched rhinoplasty to her career; "I went in the operating room a celebrity, and came out anonymous. It was like being in a witness protection program or being invisible."

Patrick Swayze died in mid-September 2009 from complications caused by pancreatic cancer.  His death sparks a renewed interest in his historical film roles, including Dirty Dancing.
