Some actresses get famous after their debut movies and others take a while. But most actresses don’t ever get as much fame as actress Jennifer Grey, who rocketed to stardom after a series of hits in the mid-1980s that reached its pinnacle with the 1987 blockbuster Dirty Dancing.
Jennifer’s parents were closely associated with Hollywood, her father being Academy award winner Joel Grey and her mom singer and actress Jo Wilder, so she had a bit of a leg up. Grey had worked on several Hollywood projects since she was very young, including 1984’s Reckless and Red Dawn, as well as the 1986 hit Ferris Bueller’s Day Off that became a cult classic.
Her first public appearance was on a Dr. Pepper ad when she was just 19. After that, her career never really halted until a big accident. Jennifer and her ex-boyfriend caught an accident which led her to stop dancing and acting for a while.
However, the actress took a leap from all her pain when she got back to dancing and even won a season of Dancing with the Stars. The show was a super hit.
In the present, Jennifer is 62 and living her best life. Although she has had pretty eventful and tough times in her life, she is happier than ever. Not to mention, her beauty remains as radiant as ever even at 62. She is definitely an actress one should follow!
