Twenty-five years ago this week, 'Pretty in Pink' hit theaters, digging its hooks into teens across the country. The film not only stands as one of the great teen romances, it's also an iconic '80s film and a creative peak for its mastermind John Hughes and his red-headed, feminine muse, Molly Ringwald.
In 'Pretty in Pink,' Ringwald stars as Andie Walsh, an independent-minded outcast in high school who begins a tempestuous relationship with Blane (Andrew MccCarthy), a rich, preppy boy who may not be man enough to endure the taunts of his snobbish friends for dating a poor girl. Caught in the middle is Jon Cryer's Duckie, who loves Andie with all his heart, even if she doesn't return the feeling.
To celebrate the movie's 25th anniversary, we thought we'd find out Where Are They Now: The Stars of 'Pretty in Pink.' (Very special thanks to 'You Couldn't Ignore Me If You Tried,' Susannah Gora's excellent book about the Brat Pack, now out in paperback.)
