Jennifer Grey dishes on who she would love to see in a “Dirty Dancing” sequel.
During her Thursday appearance on Global’s “The Drew Barrymore Show”, the actress assured Barrymore that the upcoming film will have “dancing,” “music,” and “sex” — and then posed this very important question: “Who do you think should be the next inappropriate match for Baby?”
Grey replied: “Somebody who rhymes with Shmarry Shmiles.” More confused silence, and then Barrymore’s brain light finally switched back on: “HARRY STYLES! YES!” she screeched, as the crowd cheered with approval.
During her interview with Barrymore, Grey also recalled filming Dirty Dancing‘s climatic move — the Lift — and how terrified she was. “I did not do it until the day we shot it,” she said. “I refused. I literally was too scared… and I basically just couldn’t do it. I couldn’t make myself until the day when all the people were watching, and then I had to do it.”
