We can’t decide if this is sweet or really creepy, but let’s be honest… wax figures are unsettling even when the people they depict are alive and kicking.
On Tuesday, Oct. 18, Madame Tussauds Hollywood unveiled their “Dirty Dancing” era wax figure of the late, great Patrick Swayze, who lost his battle to pancreatic cancer in Sept. 2009. Swayze’s widow, actress and dancer Lisa Niemi, was on hand for the ceremony.
The sculpture’s display is designed to allow fans to re-enact the famous river scene from the iconic film, but somehow, when his widow does it… it’s a little bit weird for us. The only thing weirder would be Jennifer Grey herself getting up on that log.
