“You know, you look a lot better without all that black sh-t under your eyes.”
Then, maybe. But now?
By today’s standards, at least to me, Ally Sheedy totally looked better in The Breakfast Club BEFORE Claire gave her the hairband makeover. Come on. This…
...is cute, in a Kristen Stewart kind of way.
… is super lame.
You know what that’s called?
It’s called 30 F-CKING YEARS. The Breakfast Club is 30 years old! Yesterday Molly Ringwald and Ally Sheedy were together in Austin at SXSW to celebrate the anniversary. The film has been remastered and will be screened in theatres for a limited run starting next week. I might have to go and look around, see how many other people there are still living the 80s.
Besides style preferences though, you know what else has changed in 30 years? 30 years ago, we could deal with that ending. There was no future for Claire and Bender. There could only ever be an earring. Now? If they ever tried to remake that movie? On Monday they’d walk into school hand in hand. That would kill me.
Yours in gossip,
