Molly Ringwald, John Hughes holiday again



Molly_and_john Two of the biggest '80s icons share a birthday today. This is your day, Molly Ringwald and John Hughes!

Hughes (59) and Ringwald (41) have maintained a mystical relationship from the start. Molly starred in three of Hughes' classics: Sixteen Candles, Breakfast Club and Pretty in Pink. And if he'd had his way, she'd also have appeared in Some Kind of Wonderful (which went to Lea Thompson instead, despite her dreadful turn in Howard the Duck).

Still not sure? Read this 1986 article in which Molly interviewed John in Seventeen Magazine. They complete each other's sentences!

Hughes is still MIA these days; his most recent work was writing the story for 2008's Drillbit Taylor (under his pen name, Edmond Dantes). Molly's as busy as ever, currently co-starring in ABC Family's The Secret Life of the American Teenager.
