I’m a true child of the 80’s, I plastered my walls with Tiger Beat posters while wearing jelly bracelets and watching movies like 16 Candles and Pretty in Pink. This week while watching TV it occurred to me that the Pretty in Pink cast has changed, a lot! When did they get so ‘old?’ And does that mean I am really getting old too?
Take a look and decide for yourself…
Molly Ringwald as Andie in Pretty in Pink
Molly Ringwald in The Secret Life of an American Teenager (2008-2013)
Andrew McCarthy as Blane in Pretty in Pink
Andrew McCarthy in Unforgettable
John Cryer as Duckie in Pretty in Pink
John Cryer in Two and a Half Men
James Spader as Steff in Pretty in Pink
James Spader in The Blacklist
So which of the Pretty in Pink cast was your favorite then? And who are you still watching now?
I have to admit that as beautiful as I thought Andrew McCarthy was, I was rooting for Duckie to get the girl way back when. As for these days, I’m still loving Jon Cryer in Two and a Half Men. I haven’t seen Secret Life of an American Teenager or Unforgettable but did attempt to watch The Blacklist last night and it was just too much for me. I watch some pretty graphic and intense shows and maybe it was just a sensitive day for me but I got to the point that I was literally getting queasy from watching. (I do think it was great writing and acting though so if you aren’t as much of a wuss as I am, check it out.)
