It really looks like I’m carrying on a theme here… Do you recognise this teen actress? The diamond earring might be significant ;-)
So who is she? Only one of the most famous red heads of all time! During my recent John Hughes Movie Marathon, I re-discovered The Breakfast Club. To my surprise it’s much better than I remembered, with brilliant performances. This is Molly Ringwald as Claire Standish , posh rich bitch who’s really not as bad as she seems. The whole movie is about turning teenage stereotypes on their heads. About how (to quote George Michael )sometimes the clothes do not make the man, and how not to judge a book by its cover.
And on the subject of bucking expectations, I was very pleased to discover ms Ringwald on twitter , she’s funny and kind , down to earth and accessible. Proof that teen idols are be real people too ;-)
