Baby, is that you?

Jennifer Grey celebrated the 25th anniversary of "Dirty Dancing" in Hollywood last night and, without Patrick Swayze by her side, it was hard to pick her out from the crowd. The 52-year-old actress shot to fame as wannabe dancer Baby Houseman opposite Swayze's instructor Johnny Castle in the 1987 romance. But two decades later, without the curls and her distinct profile, Grey looks nothing like she did in the film that made her famous.

The "Dancing With the Stars" alum showed up to the event at Grauman's Chinese Theatre in a grey tank top, shiny pants, and sleek hair. She spoke about how the film still affected her life.

"It's a part of me," she told the Hollywood Reporter. "This movie is something that is so close to me."

So why does Grey look so different? In the early '90s, she had two surgeries on her iconic nose, which Grey has admitted she regrets to this day.

"I went in the operating room a celebrity -- and came out anonymous," she said in 2006. "It was like being in a witness protection program or being invisible."

It was so bad that, in 1999, Grey starred in an ABC sitcom "It's Like, You Know...," which was inspired by the negative effect the nose job had on her career.

Though the show was cancelled a year later, Grey recently bounced back, winning "Dancing With the Stars" in 2010.
