After that, Jennifer played for example in If the Shoe Fits, Ritual, and The Road to Christmas. She is married to Clark Gregg since 2001. Few years after their marriage, their daughter Stella was born.
In 1987, Grey was a passenger in a car driven by then-boyfriend Matthew Broderick in Enniskillen, Northern Ireland, that was involved in a fatal accident. Jennifer suffered severe whiplash, and 63-year-old Margaret Doherty and 28-year-old Anna Gallagher were tragically killed when Broderick veered into the wrong lane. A few weeks later, “Dirty Dancing” was released, and Grey has said that she couldn’t enjoy the success of the film because she felt so much survivor’s guilt over the accident.
