The classic romantic flick Dirty Dancing has become one of the staple films for anyone who loves Patrick Swayze. We still get a little excited when Johnny is able to lift Baby in the end.
Now, with the passing of the industry icon, his co-star, Jennifer Grey, has released a statement remembering her friend and colleague. She says:
"When I think of him, I think of being in his arms when we were kids, dancing, practicing the lift in the freezing lake, having a blast doing this tiny little movie we thought no one would ever see. Patrick was a rare and beautiful combination of raw masculinity and amazing grace. My heart goes out to his wife and childhood sweetheart, Lisa Niemi, to his mom, Patsy, and to the rest of their family."
We also continue to send our best to Lisa and the rest of Patrick's family.
