Jennifer Grey’s 63rd Birthday Bash: How the Dirty Dancing Star Looks Now and Where She’s Been

Jennifer Grey, renowned for her role in “Dirty Dancing,” has navigated a fascinating journey in both her professional and personal life.

Following the triumph of “Dirty Dancing,” Jennifer experienced a gradual slowdown in her acting career during the 1990s. Despite this, she continued to secure notable roles, such as portraying Rachel’s friend Mindy in the television series “Friends” and making a guest appearance on “House.”

In 2010, Jennifer achieved success on the US series “Dancing With The Stars” where she partnered with professional dancer Derek Hough, ultimately clinching the victory. She also temporarily assumed the role of a guest judge on “Strictly Come Dancing.”

Jennifer Grey hails from a prestigious family background. Her father, Joel Grey, garnered acclaim by winning Academy, Golden Globe, BAFTA, and Tony Awards for his portrayal of the Master of Ceremonies in the musical “Cabaret,” featuring Liza Minnelli on Broadway and in the 1972 film adaptation.

Over the years, Jennifer Grey’s appearance underwent a transformation, primarily attributed to a controversial nose job in the early 1990s. She openly acknowledged the negative impact of the procedure on her career, stating in 2012, “I went into the operating room a celebrity and came out anonymous. It was the nose job from hell. I’ll always be this once-famous actress nobody recognizes because of a nose job.”

At present, Jennifer Grey is 60 years old, marking over three decades since the release of “Dirty Dancing” in 1987. She was 26 years old when she portrayed the iconic character Baby Houseman in the film, earning her a Golden Globe Award nomination.

In her personal life, Jennifer has been involved in high-profile relationships, notably with Johnny Depp and her “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” co-star, Matthew Broderick. However, she is currently married to actor Clark Gregg, recognized for his role as Agent Coulson in various Marvel Avengers films and in “Agents of Shield.” The couple shares a daughter named Stella and exchanged vows in 2001.
