MOLLY Ringwald is most known for her appearances in John Hughes movies, but her acting credits go farther than that.
Lately, she can be seen in popular teen media including CW shows and Netflix movies.
Who is Molly Ringwald?
Molly Ringwald is an American singer, actress, and author who was born in 1968 in California.
After playing an orphan in a stage production of Annie, Ringwald was cast in her first major role in the NBC sitcom, The Facts of Life.
She made her film debut in the film Tempest, which earned her a Golden Globe nomination.
However, it was not until Ringwald began working with John Hughes that she became widely known as a teen idol.
Her most famous roles are in Hughes’ The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, and Pretty in Pink.
In more recent years, she appeared on Riverdale and Netflix’s teen comedy movie series, The Kissing Booth.
The third installment of The Kissing Booth starring Ringwald comes out on August 11, 2021.
What is Molly Ringwald’s net worth?
According to Celebrity Net Worth, the 80’s star is worth $11million.
The star has been married twice to Valery Lameignère from 1999 to 2002 and then to Panio Gianopoulos in 2007.
She has three kids with her current husband: Mathilda Ereni, Adele Georgiana, and Roman Stylianos.
Which foundation did Ringwald partner with?
Ringwald has been outspoken through her work with the 16 Vaccine Initiative nonprofit.
The foundation along with the National Meningitis Association helps ensure more parents and teens know about the importance about receiving the second dose of the CDC recommended vaccine to prevent Meningococcal disease.
She spoke to SheKnows in July 2021 about her involvement with the cause.
“I got involved as a possible spokesperson because I think a lot of people know me from the work I’ve done that has to do with teenagers — from the movies I did when I was a teenager to Secret Life of the American Teenager to Riverdale — I’m sort of inextricably connected in some ways to the teen life and existence,” Ringwald said.
“But I’m also the parent of a teenage daughter, a 17-year-old, and two pre-teens. My twins are 11 years old. And I’m very conscious and aware of what I can do as a parent to protect them.
“Of course, as a parent, you want to do everything you can and some things are out of your control but the one thing that we can control is getting them vaccinated. So I would like people to know more about meningococcal meningitis because it’s not even on a lot of people’s radar.”
