Jennifer Grey Before and After Nose Job – Grey Left Overwhelmed During a Very Rare Awards Show Appearance!
Jennifer Grey, star of Dirty Dancing, spoke up about her two iconic nose operations in a recent People interview, revealing it was her mother’s decision for her to go under the knife. Mother is not always correct.
Jennifer Grey was a well-known celebrity in the 1980s, but after two nose surgery, she was practically unrecognizable to many. While promoting her memoir, Out of the Corner, the 62-year-old admitted that having surgery was originally the idea of her mother, actress Jo Wilder.
“I was so upset with my mother for always telling me I should do my nose,” she said in an April 18 interview with People. “I mistook it for capitulation; I mistook it for surrender to the enemy camp.” ‘I’m good enough,’ I thought. This should not be necessary.’ That’s exactly how I felt. ‘I’m pretty enough,’ she says.
The actress said she had heard the notion since she was a child, saying that her mother was trying to be “pragmatic” and make it easier for her to get cast in films.
“It wasn’t something like, ‘You’re not pretty,'” she remembered. “It’s as if to say, ‘Guess what? Okay, if you don’t want to be an actress. ‘However, if you want to be an actress…'”
Grey gave in shortly after the triumph of her 1987 film Dirty Dancing and underwent the first of two rhinoplasties. The purpose of the second surgery was to correct an irregularity induced by the first, but it left her nose “truncated” and “dwarfed.”
Grey recalled a traumatic memory of attending a movie premiere shortly after her second rhinoplasty, where Michael Douglas failed to recognize her.
“That was the first time I had ever gone out in public,” she explained. “From one day to the next, the concept of being utterly invisible became the thing. In the eyes of the world, I was no longer myself.”
She claimed that Hollywood had shunned her as a result of her decision to alter her appearance. She said, “I expended so much energy trying to figure out what I did wrong and why I was expelled from the kingdom.””That is false. “I exiled myself”
Jennifer Grey Tears Up As She Presents Dad With The Tony Lifetime Achievement Award
Jennifer Grey has made fewer public appearances in recent years, but she made a memorable presence at the 76th Tony Awards on Sunday in New York City. The 63-year-old actress was on hand to award her father, Joel Grey, with the prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award in recognition of his contributions in theater.
She looked stunning in a virtually translucent ruffled black gown that showed off her slender toned figure, while her father looked the part of an old Hollywood star in his tux and waistcoat.
While on stage, she began by stating, “Hello, friends and colleagues of my dad,” much to the delight of the crowd, and stated that it was her “honor” to give the medal to his father.
Jennifer was clearly overwhelmed by the situation, doing her best not to become overly emotional, as seen by her choked-up voice. Following a highlight reel of her father’s finest work, she remarked, “Right?!” before presenting the gathering to “your hero, my hero, Joel Grey,” who received a standing ovation.
The 91-year-old Joel commended the audience for their enthusiastic reception of his work over the years, and he also acknowledged his ever-supportive daughter.
