Last Friday I went to the New Bev Cinema for the Jason Reitman series and saw these two folks:
I was star struck.
I could’ve cared less that Academy Award nominated director, Jason Reitman (JUNO and Up in the Air), or that Academy Award winner Diablo Cody (writer of the screenplay JUNO) was there. Although, now, I realize how ridiculous that is…
Reitman was introducing one of his favorite movies, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, and announced that he had a special guest from the movie…
Me: THAT’S JENNIFER GREY!
Me: She played Baby in Dirty Dancing and was also Mindy in all of the Friends episodes! I LOVE DIRTY DANCING!
The first time I watched the movie I was 6 years old. (Who lets their 6 year-old watch Dirty Dancing? I didn’t understand half of the movie until I saw it again a few years ago.)
I remember twirling around in our living room singing at the top of my lungs, “I’ve had the time of my life, and I owe it all to you!”
