The most iconic moment in Jennifer Grey’s career is being lifted over Patrick Swayze’s head in “Dirty Dancing” almost 30 years ago. 

It’ll be the first clip CNN plays when she dies.  I promise.

But can you believe she’s never done it since?

She says, quote, “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!”

As you may recall, Jennifer won Season 11 of “Dancing with the Stars” in 2010, without the lift . . . even though she claims they pretty much asked her every day to do it.

She says, quote, “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 [effing] old . . . I have a family and I want to live longer.”
