Jennifer Grey, who is best known for her acting with Patrick Swayze in Dirty Dancing, has revealed that she did not think that she could win the competition on the 'Dancing with the Stars'. In an interview to TV Guide, the 50-year-old actress explained how much she was surprised after she won the 11th season of the TV dance show.
Talking to TVGuide.com, Jennifer Grey said, "I was really surprised. It means everything to me because I didn't think I could do it. It's a very satisfying experience." She added, "I had been asked for nine years [to take part in a TV dance show] and I said no out of fear. I would've been robbed of this amazing experience had I not said yes and had the courage."
However, the actress was hospitalized with a ruptured disc just a day before her final show. She was very much scared that she would not be able to dance on the final day of the competition. But her surgeon Dr. Robert Bray gave her steroid injections, which helped her deal with the pain. Finally, she managed to bag the mirrorball trophy.
