Molly Ringwald just made one statement that spit all over her legacy and these iconic 80’s movies

Apr 24, 2024

Molly Ringwald was a teen heart throb and an all-America’s sweetheart in the 1980’s, but unfortunately for her, her career took a slide when the decade ended.

Here in the present, Ringwald stays relevant by pushing Hollywood’s woke talking points.

But now the former Brat Packer exposed that she has embraced the woke side and spit all over her own legacy and these iconic 80’s movies at the same time.

Director John Hughes and Molly Ringwald made quite the duo in the 80s.

In 1984, they worked together on Sixteen Candles.

They followed that up the next year with The Breakfast Club.

And they made it three in a row with 1986’s Pretty in Pink.

Hughes made many more classic films without Ringwald, directing the likes of Planes, Trains and Automobiles, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, and Uncle Buck – to name just a few.

He also wrote iconic movies like Home Alone, The Great Outdoors, and Beethoven – again, to just name a few.

However, Ringwald is most known for her collaborations with Hughes.

And after her most recent comment, many fans will likely want to forget all about her roles as Samantha Baker, Claire Standish, and Andie Walsh.

It turns out America’s sweetheart of the 1980’s is just as woke as the vast majority of her peers in Hollywood.

Ringwald was recently honored with the Variety’s Creative Vanguard Award at the annual Miami Film Festival.

After receiving her award, Ringwald sat down for a question-and-answer session with attendees.

And that’s when the Pretty in Pink star’s true dark blue colors went on full display.

“Those movies are really, very white,” Ringwald said. “They don’t really represent what it is to be a teenager in a school in America today, I don’t think. But I think that they were really great and they were of that time, and they really represented John Hughes’ experience.”

Ringwald added that she’d like to see remakes of her classic films – but through a so-called, “Diversity, Equity & Inclusion” lens.

“Those movies, the movies that I’m so well-known for, they were very much of the time,” Ringwald said. “If you were to remake that now I think it would have to be much more diverse, you couldn’t make a movie that white.”

Ringwald let out a nervous chuckle while saying the line, “you couldn’t make a movie that white.”

The comments come as somewhat of a surprise — as Ringwald had mildly spoken out against the most radical elements of the Left in the past.

Last year, in an interview with The Guardian, Ringwald discussed some sexual behavior she claimed to have encountered or witnessed during the filming of some of her biggest movies – without naming names.

However, she also said in that same interview that the cancel culture mob born out of the supposed “#Me Too” created innocent victims and was a cause for concern.

“[A] lot of people have gotten swept up in ‘cancellation,'” Ringwald said at the time. “And I worry about that.”

And she apparently also worries about being associated with movies that are, “really, very white.”
