Grey turned down Botox for husband

Los Angeles: `Dirty Dancing` star Jennifer Grey, who returned to spotlight with `Dancing With The Stars` says she was contemplating Botox before the show but her husband talked her out of it.

Grey says she decided against the Botox when her husband Clark Gregg told her that she looks great as she is, Us magazine reported.

"Before the show, I thought, Oh, I should get some Botox, get rid of the wrinkles under my eyes. When you put a lot of make-up, the lines become very apparent.

"But Clark told me not to touch anything, to be who I am, because I look great," Grey said. Grey`s promising career in Hollywood was cut short after a botched nose surgery, which left her looks so altered that she couldn`t land parts in TV or film.

The actress, now 50, is currently competing in the US reality dance competition with professional partner Derek Hough.

Despite contemplating the skin-smoothing injections, Jennifer believes surgery is a "pitfall" of modern society. Grey, who has eight-year-old daughter Stella with her husband of nine years, has also admitted she wasn`t happy in her own skin when she was younger.

"Aging is inevitable and the idea that we can be eternally youthful is the pitfall of our society. When my body and face were perfect as far as youth, I wasn`t happy. If you
try to hold on to something you don`t have anymore, you can`t be happy in the moment."
