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.
- Fyre Festival — organized by Ja Rule and billed as a luxury event — has turned into a total shitshow and people are livid 💸😱
- We found about one false statement per day from Trump and his aides throughout the president's first 100 days in office 💯
- The new leader of Marine Le Pen's National Front party in France has stepped down amid accusations of Holocaust denial.
- Arkansas executed Kenneth Williams Thursday night — just days before one of the state's execution drugs expires.
