Subscribe to Molly Ringwald alerts

Actress Molly Ringwald is writing a new book about life as a 40-something.
The star, who became the face of many 1980s teen movies including Pretty in Pink and The Breakfast Club, turned 40 last year (Feb08) and realised it's such a significant age, she's writing about it.
Ringwald, who is pregnant with twins, has struck a deal with publishing house HarperCollins and her untitled literary debut will hit stores at the end of 2009.
The actress says, "It's not just about 40, but people of my generation catching up and what that's like, and how you have to re-identify yourself at that age in a culture that's pretty youth-driven.
"Once you've been 40, you've been through a few car wrecks and there's a lot on interesting stuff to examine."
