Natalie Portman at Shul with Jennifer Grey from Dirty Dancing
According to an article in US Magazine, Natalie Portman freaks out whenever she sees Jennifer Grey.
Natalie Portman admits to British Elle in its November issue that she freaks out every time she’s around Dirty Dancing actress Jennifer Grey at their Jewish synagogue. Baby’s biggest fan! Oscar-winning actress Natalie Portman may often rub shoulders with A-listers in Hollywood, but there’s one fellow actress that she can’t stop freaking out about — Jennifer Grey! The Black Swan actress revealed that she gets quite nutty whenever she bumps into the Dirty Dancing star at their Jewish synagogue.
“We go to temple together. And I freak out every time I see her. I’m such a nerd!” the brunette beauty said to Elle UK in its November issue. “Of course [we talk about Dirty Dancing]. I can’t talk about it too much or I’ll start getting teary.
She added: “There are other movies that I love but no other movie that I have watched over and over again.”
Grey, 53, better watch her back! The Thor actress also admitted that watching the 1987 classic so often has left her pretty persistent in their interactions. “When she comes she knows that I’m going to jump on her,” she said.
Portman was just 6 years old when the famous indie film starring Grey and Patrick Swayze premiered. “I wish I weren’t as nervous as I am around her,” she added about the former Dancing With the Stars contestant. “I can’t get over it,” she gushed.
