Jennifer Gray, the famous actress from “Dirty Dancing”, turned 61 on March 26th.
Baby’s role in 1987 has made her famous around the world, but in recent years she has disappeared from the spotlight, and the actress recently revealed the reason.
Jennifer admitted that she ruined her career on her own after resorting to cosmetic surgery.
The star said in an interview that cosmetic surgery destroyed her angelic face, which made her famous, and turned her into an anonymous one because no one recognizes her anymore.
The movie “Dirty Dancing” turned Jennifer and Patrick Swayze into real stars and the two were on the verge of success.
But, just a few years after the film’s release, Baby disappeared from the spotlight and no one knew anything about her, while Patrick took on exceptional roles.
Jennifer admitted, however, that this was because she made the mistake of resorting to cosmetic surgery, and nose surgery in the early 1990s made her unrecognizable, a fact for which her career suffered.
“I entered the operating room as a celebrity and came out as an anonymous. (…) I will always be a famous actress that now no one recognizes because of a nose operation,” the actress told the Daily Mirror a few years ago, stating that he will regret this decision to have rhinoplasty for the rest of his life. The actress said that she went out to eat in the city and no one recognized her.
However, Jennifer Gray has also appeared in small roles in TV series and movies, such as “Red Oaks”, “Grey’s Anatomy” or “The Conners”.
The actress fell in love with famous actors such as Matthew Broderick and Johnny Depp, and in 2001 she married Clark Gregg, with whom she has a little girl, named Stella, aged 19, who is gorgeous and steps on them, being also she’s an actress.
Unfortunately, the pandemic also had its say in the case of Jennifer and Clark, who decided to divorce last year, after 19 years of marriage, the divorce being completed only this year.
“After 19 years together, we separated in January, being aware that we will always be a loving and caring family.
We recently made the difficult decision to divorce, but we remain close friends and are deeply grateful for the life we had together and for having our daughter. P.S. I cry when we make this post “, the two wrote.
Patrick Swayze, her partner in the movie “Dirty Dancing”, died in 2009, at the age of 57, after a long battle with pancreatic cancer.
