Jennifer Grey plays a bisexual character in Amazon’s Red Oaks (though usually the topic is reserved for jokes), and she thinks there’s a tie between her character, Judy, and her famous role as Baby in Dirty Dancing:

“What’s really interesting is the person who was cast as Baby is the same person who has been cast as Judy Meyers in Red Oaks. I am the constant in both characters, and sexuality plays a key part in that movie and this show. I think sexuality is such an enormous part of a healthy life. … I feel myself very straight… there’s enough bisexuality in me but I wouldn’t say that I am because I know this is the press and I have to be very careful. But I think sexual energy is like water and it finds its way to where it has to go. I’m with my husband, happily, but the idea of labelling – bisexual, heterosexual – we know there are at least 31 flavours of sexuality.”
