Swayze’s Dirty Dancing Costar Wants to Hug Him|Celebrity News


Patrick Swayze’s costar in the movie that put him on the map would like to find him.

“It is so sad,” Jennifer Grey, 47, who appeared with Swayze, 55, in 1987’s Dirty Dancing, said of the actor’s cancer diagnosis, reports Britain’s Telegraph.

If I saw him on the streets today, I’d throw my arms around him and love him up,” says the actress.

Grey’s comment follows that of Swayze’s 1990 Ghost costar, Whoopi Goldberg, who said on Thursday’s edition of The View that she owes her Oscar for that movie to Swayze, who insisted she be cast in the role (as a fast-talking medium who channels his love to his widow, played by Demi Moore.

We want you to feel better and we will talk soon, I hope,” Goldberg, 52, said on TV.

    Patrick gives the whole world hope. Whenever people hear horrible things like a cancer diagnosis, often times, they lose hope. Patrick’s unending strength is truly admirable for all others in similar situations.

  7. Ken & Darlene Fuller Says:

    Patrick, You are one strong man. Keep the faith. God is the Great Physician. Work on getting healthy like it all depends on you and pray like it all depends on God. We are praying for you also. Lisa, thank you for being strong for your husband. God bless you both. Remain strong in your marriage and your faith.

  8. Jeffrey B Thorson Says:

    Dirty Dancing is one of my all time fav’s. The dance those two did at the end of the movie really lit up the screen. The best acting I’ve ever seen. If Jennifer Grey really wants to throw her arms around Patrick Swayze and love him up then why don’t they do an oncore. On Dancing With the Stars. It would be awesome if they would get back together and do the same dance that they did in Dirty Dancing. I’m serious. They should do it. What an experience it would be for everybody.

    I wish I could help you. I love your movies and especially North and South and Dirty dancing. You were great.

    The value of Pfizer stock shot up yesterday, following good news about a drug that was developed in La Jolla. The company says the next step is FDA approval. KPBS Reporter Tom Fudge has more.

    Sutent is a drug that’s been tested to treat an unusual form of pancreatic cancer, called eyelet cell cancer. And the drug has done very well in clinical trials. So well, in fact, that an independent board called for the trials to end so patients, taking the placebo, could start taking Sutent. That news was followed by a dramatic 10 percent increase in the stock value of Pfizer, which makes the drug. Sutent was clinically developed by researchers in Pfizer’s La Jolla campus. The form of cancer examined in the trial has afflicted, among others, Apple CEO Steven Jobs. Sutent has already been approved for advanced liver cancer. Pfizer officials now say they’ll apply to the FDA for approval for use in pancreatic cancer. Tom Fudge, KPBS News

    Yesterday’s “dirty dancing”‘ on German TV made me think of Jennifer Grey (of which I haven’t heard anything at all….) and particularly Patrick Swayze.
    I watched the 20.15h session as well as the repeat at almost 01.00h to see them dancing – especially P.S.; watching him was very special…..
    They both were awesome!
    I did not follow P.S.’s career but of course heard about his cancer.
    I wish him well for that he soon recovers to the full.

  15. Angela Says:

    R.I.P Patrick, we miss you. Hope you are singing and dancing with the greats and the gods!

  16. Suzanne Says:

    Patrick, tu étais un grand homme. J’ai suivi ta carrière et j’ai vu tous tes films. Je suis de ta génération, à deux ans près.

    Je me plais à imaginer que tu es parti de la même façon que Sam… en emportant avec toi tout l’amour que tu as en toi.

    Lisa, puisse l’amour qui vous a unis tout au long de ces années emplir votre coeur,vous réconforter et vous aider à lui survivre. Il est toujours là, près de vous et vous tiens la main, j’en suis certaine.

    De tout coeur,


  17. Suzanne Says:

    Approximative translation of the precedent message…

    Patrick, you were a great man. I followed your career and I saw all your films. I am of your generation, in two years near.

    I like to imagine that you left in the same way as Sam by taking with you all the love which you have in you.

    Lisa, may the love which united you throughout these years, fill your heart, comfort you and help you to survive him. He’s always there, near you and hold your hand, I am sure of it.

    From the deep of my heart,

    Suzanne (Quebec)
