Swayze battled a painful knee injury throughout the shoot, but his mood was worsened by his irritation with Gray.
He wrote in his autobiography The Time of My Life: “She seemed particularly emotional, sometimes bursting into tears if someone criticized her.
“Other times, she slipped into silly moods, forcing us to do scenes over and over again when she’d start laughing…(I) didn’t have a whole lot of patience for doing multiple retakes.”
Yes, he is talking about that adorable fan favourite scene where Baby can’t stop giggling during a dance rehearsal. It was prompted by Gray’s ticklishness which only added to her co-star’s frustration.
Gray was also extremely nervous about doing some if those iconic but admittedly dangerous moves.
