Actress Jennifr Grey was far from happy when she learned Patrick Swayze would be her love interest in cult movie Dirty Dancing because she hated working with the actor on a previous film.
Grey let it be known to producers that she had not enjoyed making Red Dawn with the movie hunk – and feared she and Swayze would not have the chemistry needed for the 1987 film.
Producer Linda Gottlieb recalled: “When Jennifer heard that Patrick was playing the part she was not a happy camper. They had performed together in Red Dawn and I gather that was not a wonderful working relationship. They had very different temperaments – Jennifer is a kind of spontaneous girl and she’d be very emotional; she would cry easily. Patrick is the exact opposite.”
