Favorite Quotes from Molly Ringwald 

“You never know when you read a script how it’s going to turn out because so much depends on the collaboration between people. If I’d been in some of the movies I turned down, maybe they wouldn’t have been a success.” – Molly Ringwald

“Whatever it is that gives you that confidence will vary from person to person, but I do believe that it is the key to succeeding at anything in life – career, relationships, anything.” – Molly Ringwald

“John had been wanting to write something for me, and he often used song titles for his projects since most of what he wrote was inspired by music. He wrote Pretty in Pink in between Sixteen Candles and The Breakfast Club and based it loosely around the Psychedelic Furs song.” – Molly Ringwald 

“Andrew was cute with a sorta bookish quality. He didn’t come off like some typical jock, which I didn’t think Andie would ever be interested in. He seemed like the kind of guy that Andie would’ve been into because Andie wasn’t that different from me.” – Molly Ringwald 

“The reaction you see on film is him getting legitimately upset with us for pestering him. But that’s the only time I can recall us ever butting heads. I would say that I probably hung out with him more on set than I did with Andrew.” – Molly Ringwald 

“I grew up in a home filled with music and had an early appreciation of jazz since my dad was a jazz musician. Beginning at around age three I started singing with his band and jazz music has continued to be one of my three passions along with acting and writing. I like to say jazz music is my musical equivalent of comfort food.” – Molly Ringwald
