Jennifer Grey: A "Dancing" Resurgence Continues

by at . Comments

Sure, Brandy and Audrina Patridge can move. But Jennifer Grey proved Monday that she's still the woman to beat on Dancing With the Stars this season.

More or less out of the spotlight for more than 20 years, that's quite a feat for a woman at the half-century mark. Her age has posed some issues, too.

"Before the show, I thought, Oh, I should get some Botox, get rid of the wrinkles under my eyes," Grey admitted in an interview with Us Weekly.

Can anyone stop Jennifer and Derek Hough on Dancing With the Stars?

"When you put a lot of makeup, the lines become very apparent," she adds, but credits her husband of nine years, Clark Gregg, for talking her out of it.

Clark told her "not to touch anything, to be who I am, because I look great."

"Aging is inevitable and the idea that we can all be eternally youthful is the pitfall of our society," says Jennifer Grey, the mother of a daughter, Stella, 8.

"When my body and face were perfect as far as youth, I wasn't happy. If you try to hold on to something you don't have, you can't [live] in the moment."

Dancing with the Stars Quotes

We should have started dancing with one arm waaay before.
