Ringwald’s had quite a week on the interwebs. First, she joined Twitter, and most recently, took to Reddit to answer questions about her life and career from inquiring Redditors. You’d think that more than 25 years since the films’ release, Ringwald would have tired of answering questions about “The Breakfast Club” and “Sixteen Candles,” but that’s not the case at all. Which is awesome.
So! We learned a bunch of things. For one, she’s funny!
She also really likes Reddit.
She was sort of offered Julia Roberts’ role in “Pretty Woman”! How crazy would that have been?
“Breakfast Club” was her favorite John Hughes movie (mine too, of course!). She also… has dinner with Bret Easton Ellis. The 80s are alive!
She can’t really do the “lipstick trick” in “The Breakfast Club.” Bummer.
Here’s what she’s talking about, by the way.
- One week into the fight to take back Mosul, expectations for quick success have clashed with the reality of a bloody struggle ahead.
- An adult film actress says Donald Trump, or someone on his behalf, offered her $10,000 and the use of his private jet to come to his suite.
- The Chicago Cubs are heading to their first World Series since 1945 after beating the Los Angeles Dodgers 🐻
- Round of applause: This teen got a standing ovation for her high school presentation on white privilege.
