Don't You Forget About Me: Molly Ringwald's Killer Reddit Interview

BlogHer Original Post

Molly Ringwald took to Reddit last week in an Ask Me Anything interview that put to rest any question that the 80's teen queen is as cool as you would hope she would be.  Because she is. Awesome.

On how she manages to "get hotter with age":

"I drink the blood of Kristen Stewart."

On if she's seen the episode of Family Guy which references her:

"They asked me to do the voice. I was going to do it but it was a scheduling thing. I'm a big Seth MacFarlane fan! I can't wait for the new cosmos he is doing with Neil De Grasse Tyson."

I think commenter youngjeezyvsgbush put it best when he replied:

"Neil De Grasse Tyson"

You really know the way to Reddit's heart.

Though she took her time to come up with a good anecdote, Ringwald did finally respond to requests for a best story from The Breakfast Club set:

"When I did the smoking doobage scene "I'm so popular, everyone loves me at this school," it was basically all improvised and John just let the camera roll for twenty minutes. He was so psyched with everything he got that he dragged my mother into the room where they were showing rushes so she could see how brilliant her daughter was. Of course, my mom was horrified."

And she finally put those rumors of a Sixteen Candles sequel to rest:

"At one point, six years ago, I was considering participating in a sequel to Sixteen Candles. But John Hughes didn't want to have sequels to any of the movies I was in and I didn't feel comfortable doing it without his involvement."

"...I don't remember much about it, but the script eventually became Avatar."

There's so much good Molly for you to read, I couldn't possibly recap all of it here. So for the good of your pop culture street cred, read the full text of the Ask Me Anything interview HERE.
