Molly Ringwald jokes on Reddit: 'I drink the blood of Kristen Stewart' to stay young
Molly Ringwald shared insider stories about some of her most famous films and joked about a "Twilight Saga" star during her "Ask Me Anything" interview on the social news site Reddit on April 25.
The actress participated in the interview, which features questions from the site's community of users, and also revealed she's working on a jazz album.
When asked by a user accioc, "How did you manage to get hotter with age," Ringwald joked, "I drink the blood of Kristen Stewart."
The 44-year-old actress fielded a lot of questions about her work with director John Hughes. Her infamous "Breakfast Club" scene with the lipstick trick? The actress wrote that it was "movie magic."
"There is a story behind that: John Hughes wrote it but never actually thought about me having to do it. He kept putting it off until the end of filming that long scene. I kept bringing it up, like, 'Hey. We gotta figure this out," she said. "Are we going to have robotic breasts?' Finally we decided it was better to see less and let everyone assume that I was particularly skilled."
She also confirmed a bit of IMDB movie trivia for "The Breakfast Club" film that said Judd Nelson was nearly fired from the film for mistreating Ringwald off camera.
"This is true. I think Judd was doing the method actor thing during rehearsals. He was wearing Bender's clothes and trying to annoy me," she wrote. "I was fine but John Hughes was very protective of me. We ended up having a powwow, led by Ally. I remember her telling me, 'We have to get him focused. Like a laser!' I think a bunch of us including myself called John and asked him to reconsider. I am thankful he did."
Ringwald also joined Twitter on April 19 and has already amassed 11,790 followers at the time of this writing.
She currently stars on the ABC Family series "The Secret Life of the American Teenager." Ringwald published her first book called "Getting the Pretty Back" in 2010 and has three children, 8-year-old daughter Mathilda and 2-year-old twins Adele and Roman, with husband Panio Gianopoulos. The couple wed in 2007.
