Yes, it may sound surreal, but there was a period in the 80s when the Dirty Dancing star was engaged to both Matthew Broderick and Johnny Depp within weeks of one another.

Per E! News, Grey first met Broderick when the two actors played brother and sister in the cult classic Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

Three years later, Broderick proposed to Grey - but the couple soon split and she moved to Los Angeles.

However, rather than enjoy the single life, Grey was set up on a blind date by her agent with a young up-and-coming actor called Johnny Depp (you may have heard of him).

In her memoir, Grey writes how just two weeks after meeting Depp, he proposed and the newly engaged couple moved in together.

Speaking about the unconventional love triangle on the May 12 episode of The Drew Barrymore Show, Grey - now 62 - said: "I was engaged to Matthew Broderick and Johnny Depp in the same month."

The revelation was enough for both the actors to fall to their knees and start screaming in front of the live audience.

"It was really a sign that there was trouble afoot on my part," Grey told Barrymore. "I just thought it was God rescuing me from one bad situation and just lovingly plopping me into a Johnny Depp soufflé."

"You have to understand, Johnny Depp - 1989 Johnny Dep - so beautiful, you've never seen a more beautiful... it's almost inhuman," Grey told Barrymore.

In an excerpt of her book first published by The Independent, Grey revealed that the couple had a dog named Lulu, who she called their "practice baby".

Grey and Depp were engaged for nine months before eventually calling off their relationship.

According to the Dirty Dancing star, she broke off their engagement due to Depp's behavior.

"He'd started missing his flights home to LA having overslept or, when he did come home, he'd be crazy jealous and paranoid about what I'd been up to while he was gone," she writes.

Grey ended the relationship by leaving Depp a note in his hotel room.

Speaking of the Pirates of the Caribbean star's ongoing defamation trial against ex-wife Amber Heard, Grey told Entertainment Tonight: "All I can say about that trial is that it breaks my heart for everybody involved. I just think it's sad and I wish it was resolved. I just wish everybody well."
