Molly Ringwald

Molly Ringwald has acted in some of the most iconic teen dramas of all time but she is worried that her “woke” children might find it troubling.

Molly Ringwald is best known for her films “Sixteen Candles”, “The Breakfast Club” and “Pretty in Pink”. These were all directed by John Hughes.

She is now a mother of 3 and stated that she never found the strength to share her famous acts with her children, Roman and Adele. They are the youngest children she has borne.

Molly Ringwald Has A Woke Daughter

Adele is considered to be the most woke individual Molly Ringwald has ever met and she is only 12 years old. She is scared that her daughter might ask uncomfortable questions as to why she was a part of something like that or how could she even do all that.

Molly Ringwald said that there were certain elements in the film that were quite homophobic but it also had complicated moral values in them.

These movies were for those people who felt like outcasts and Molly considered those elements to make the movie more wonderful.

She also stated that some of the elements were quite troubling and she wants it to change in the future, but not everything. She is extremely proud of these movies and bears a lot of affection for them.

Ringwald previously watched “The Breakfast Club” with her elder daughter, Mathilda, 17, who was 10 at the time. She wrote about the surreal experience and acknowledged how the film might be seen as sexist or problematic in the midst of the #MeToo movement.
