London: Actress Natalie Portman says she becomes flustered around veteran star Jennifer Grey.

The 32-year-old actress said she is a huge fan of the female lead from 1987 film `Dirty Dancing`, reported Showbizspy.

"Yes I`ve met Jennifer. We go to temple together. And I freak out every time I see her ? I`m such a nerd. She kind of gets the `polite eyes` when she comes, because she knows I`m going to jump on her. I wish I weren`t as nervous as I am around her. I can`t get over it.

"Of course we talk about `Dirty Dancing`! I can`t talk about it too much, or I`ll start getting teary. There are other movies I love, but no other movie that I have watched over and over."
