*People.com is reporting that Jennifer Beals has turned down an invitation to join the next season of “Dancing With the Stars.”

The actress, currently starring in the critically-acclaimed Fox drama “The Chicago Code,” says she will not be following in the footsteps of recent winner Jennifer Grey, stating, “I am not a dancer. They asked me and I said no. You could back up a truck to my door filled with cash and I wouldn’t do it.”

The 47-year-old said she visited the show several years ago to support her friend Marlee Matlin, the Oscar-winning actress who played her girlfriend in Showtime’s “The L Word.”

“The sound of the audience is so loud and the energy in there is so intense. I wanted to start crying just in feeling for her,” said Beals. “I joked with Marlee and said, ‘You don’t know how lucky you are you can’t hear this.’ The noise level is so intense and people’s excitement level is so intense. I could never. I’m not that kind of a performer.”
