Jennifer Grey's had difficulty spinning around in the dance finale of 'Dirty Dancing'.

The 56-year-old actress, who played the role of Baby in the popular 1987 movie alongside the late Patrick Swayze, has revealed there were a number of calamities whilst filming the production, and has admitted the stage had been painted and her feet kept getting stuck in the product when she took to the fore to perform the iconic routine.

Speaking to Marie Claire Online about the romantic comedy, she said: ''I remember doing the big dance finale and they had just painted the stage and it was sticky. The paint would stick to my feet so I couldn't turn.''

And the star has admitted whilst she was continuing with the dance she feared the audience was going to see her ''fall on [her face].''

She explained: ''All the extras were sitting around, just hundreds of people, watching you about to fall on your face.''

Jennifer has praised herself for getting in the ''very, very, very cold'' lake to practice the signature lift, although she didn't think it was ''healthy'' for her to be in the water.

She said: ''I remember swimming in the lake was very, very, very cold. You have to be really young and hungry to get in water that cold for that long. It was not good. I remember thinking: 'Can you die if your nipples explode?' It just didn't feel healthy to be in that water.''
