“I don’t know if [Natalie is] young enough to play that virgin thing, but she’s so gorgeous. She’s just the best, most beautiful, amazing — and a great dancer," she continued.

After having the time of her life (see what we did there?) at Kellerman's, Jennifer's career took a major hit when she got a nose job. "I went in the operating room as a celebrity and came out anonymous," the actress — who has also appeared in Ferris Bueller's Day Off and Red Dawn — once said of the surgery. Jennifer most recently won the 2010 season of Dancing with the Stars and starred in movies In Your Eyes and Judy.
