Brat Pack pin-up ANDREW McCARTHY was struggling with hangovers all the way through cult teen movie PRETTY IN PINK.

The actor, who is on the rise again in America thanks to his role in STEPHEN KING's TV series KINGDOM HOSPITAL, has revealed he was battling alcoholism while he was starring in a string of movie hits.

He says, "People said, 'Oh, you're so sensitive and lovely in that movie,' and I'm thinking, 'God, I've hot a headache. I'm just dying here. I've gotta go and lie down.'

"It took a while for alcoholism to kick my a**, which it ended up doing completely."
