Jennifer Grey on her nose jobs

As Jennifer Grey promotes her forthcoming memoir, "Out of the Corner," 

She is speaking out about multiple topics, including her two rhinoplasty surgeries.

"But when I was a kid, I was completely anti-rhinoplasty. I mean it was like my religion," she told People magazine." 

I loved that my parents did it [underwent rhinoplasty]. I understand it was the 50s. I understand they were assimilating."

It was her mother, Grey said, who first suggested she get her nose done.

She no longer looked like the woman who had come to fame starring in the 1987 hit film "Dirty Dancing."

Grey said she and co-star Patrick Swayze were not "a natural match" in real life

And that caused some of the tension that fueled their characters in the film.

She said she's been working on the script for a "Dirty Dancing" sequel for years

 Which she would like to have capture some of the magic of the original and translate it for a newer audience.

Grey's memoir publishes on May 3.
