From the tension on set with Patrick Swayze, to her plastic surgery, to a steamy romance with young Johnny Depp, her tell-all is guaranteed to spill all the behind-the-scenes tea. 

Wait, did I say “romance with Johnny Depp”? You bet I did!

'80s icon Jennifer Grey's memoir comes out on May 3, 2022.

Not only does it have the best title ever, Out of the Corner, but it also spills a bunch of

behind-the-scenes secrets about everyone's favorite film, Dirty Dancing.

However, if you can believe it, I'm not here to talk about that today.

No no, today I'm taking time out of your day to tell you about Jennifer's love affair with Johnny Depp.

I know, right? I had no idea, either!

Jennifer and Johnny got together after she and fiancé Matthew Broderick went their separate ways.

The two split following a tragic car accident in Ireland that left two people dead and both of them injured, surely a traumatic moment that strained their bond.

She even hints that more happened afterward that made it even harder

She writes that after going through some “very, very heavy stuff that went down that changed my life forever,” she dated the Pirates of the Caribbean star for a year.

"There was some heat," she recalls, as per "People."

"It was a [expletive] bonfire. It was literally like, ‘Are you [expletive] kidding me? Are you [expletive] kidding me? I’ve never seen a guy like this.'"

I mean come on now, we all know '80s Johnny Depp was unreal.

"And energetically, what it was like being with him, it was like, 'Oh, I’m being totally, totally compensated for the [expletive] I just went through,'" she added.

I'm just glad that baby is getting her moment and is coming out from that corner, as she deserves!

Her memoir is highly anticipated.

She describes it as a "new feeling", saying, "To take myself out of the corner — and to recognize that I have been putting myself there, through story, through narratives that weren't giving me the best life. [...] I hadn't seen the ways in which I'd made choices."

Choices we're sure to learn all about on May 3 when the memoir is released!
