Ready to feel old? The '80s classic "Dirty Dancing" celebrates its 25th anniversary Tuesday and star Jennifer Grey has been dancing her way across the country to help fans celebrate.

Grey partnered with Skinny Cow ice cream to host a series of "Dirty Dancing" screenings. During the tour's stop in Atlanta, she visited CNN to talk about the movie and her late co-star Patrick Swayze.

"I always thought of Patrick as being so vulnerable," she said. "Everything he did he did so fully, but I could always see in him, this beautiful, beautiful vulnerability and I think that's one of the many things that make him someone that we all miss."

CNN's iReporters also had plenty of questions for Grey, whose career spans more than 25 years and includes roles in "Red Dawn" and "Ferris Bueller's Day Off."

Katie Gardner asked if Grey was still planning to pen her autobiography.

"I decided to wait till I was a little bit older," Grey said. "I'm not interested in writing a book that would make other people uncomfortable and I don't know how you write a book like that, so I just decided to think more about how it would make other people feel about reading the book and it kind of made me lose interest."
