Jennifer Grey Refuses to Get Botox

Jennifer Grey’s Road Back to the Dance Floor

You have to give Jennifer Grey a lot of credit. As a recent survivor of thyroid cancer, she had every reason to avoid a high energy stint on Dancing With the Stars.

Working only occasionally on her acting chops in the last few years, she may also have had second thoughts about strapping on ballroom dancing shoes after her leading role in the classic movie, Dirty Dancing.

Even more courageous is the actress’ attitude about making a comeback at 50 years old. While most stars her age (and younger) are lining up for injection cocktails, Jennifer Grey has decided to pass on Botox after briefly considering getting “work done” before the show started.

Although she regretted altering her appearance with a nose job in the 1990s, Grey recently told US magazine that she briefly contemplated having work done when she accepted the offer to appear on Dancing with the Stars: “Before the show, I thought: ‘Oh, I should get some Botox, get rid of the wrinkles under my eyes.’ When you put a lot of makeup, the lines become very apparent.”

Her husband, Clark Gregg (who starred opposite Julia Louis Dreyfuss in The New Adventures of Old Christine), told his wife not to touch anything because she looks great. Grey listened to his advice. “Ageing is inevitable and the idea that we can be eternally youthful is the pitfall of our society . . .If you try to hold on to something you don’t have anymore, you can’t be happy in the moment.”

Update: What’s Jennifer Grey up to see since winning the mirror-ball trophy from ‘Dancing with the
Stars’. The actress is having surgery to fix a disc in her lower back that she ruptured during one of her performances.

Even though she experienced extreme pain, she told Access Hollywood it was all worth it: “I just have some discomfort in back that needs to be taken care of. OK, it’s a little more than discomfort.”
