She may have had the time of her life back in 1987, but Dirty Dancing actress, Jennifer Grey has revealed that fans will absolutely never see the star recreating the famous dance lift ever again!

In a recent interview with The Guardian, Jennifer Grey, who played Frances "Baby" Houseman alongside the late Patrick Swayze in the classic film, revealed that in the 28 years since Dirty Dancing was released she has never recreated that iconic scene! Telling interviewers:

"I only did it on the day I shot it. Never rehearsed it, never done it since. I don’t know how all these people who re-enact it have the guts to throw themselves into the arms of anyone other than Patrick Swayze. It’s insane!"

The scene is one of the most recreated scenes in movies and TV, and over the years you may have caught celebrity pairs such as Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling, Chris Hemsworth and Kate McKinnon and Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence imitating the moves.

So, what are our chances of seeing Grey recreate the dance as a contestant on Dancing with the Stars anytime soon? Well, despite being asked just "about every day" to join the series, she claims it will never happen:

"It’s a non-starter. It happened, enjoy it, watch it over and over again but never ask me to do it again because I’m too f—king old. I have a family and I want to live longer."

Eek, looks like Baby put that idea firmly in a corner. Guess we'll just have to rewatch the original over and over again to get our fix.
