Picture: Dancer Katya Virshilas arrives at Aldwych Theatre to see 'Dirty Dancing' London, England - 21.09.10
Dirty Dancing star Jennifer Grey's Hollywood dreams were shattered after a "nose job from hell" changed her appearance so drastically, she looked nothing like her former self. The 1980s star's promising career ground to a complete halt overnight in the early 1990s because suddenly nobody recognised her - and even friends would blank her when she bumped into them. She says, "I went in the operating theatre a celebrity - and come out anonymous. It was like being in a witness protection program or being invisible. "I remember going to a restaurant where I had been going for years. I ran into people I knew and would say, 'Hey.' Nothing. "I'll always be this once-famous actress nobody recognises... because of a nose job."
