Molly Ringwald is the New Queen of the Internet


Her Twitter feed describes her as “your former teen-age crush,” but it was your father who was really nuts over Molly Ringwald. Now the mother of twins is a major MILF crush after scoring an epic win in her Reddit AMA interview. (That stands for “Ask Me Anything.”) The last celebrity to face the fickle Reddit audience was Woody Harrelson, and that was a real disaster. It went so bad that most people assumed it was Woody’s publicist typing away. Molly, however, hasn’t seemed this hip since 1986. Here’s the full interview, but let’s enjoy these hot highlights from a woman old enough to play the mom in The Secret Life of the American Teenager. And we’re sure impressed if this turns out to have been Molly’s publicist:

On how she looks so young: “I drink the blood of Kristen Stewart.”

On seeing an Etch-a-Sketch portrait from a Reddit guy: “I’m going to make this my new headshot.”

On a strange evening out: “Weirdly, I was having dinner with Bet Easton Ellis who I hadn’t seen in a decade. We were seated at the Chef’s table when we saw James Spader touring the kitchen. I think it was surreal for everyone involved, like a wormhole from the eighties opened up.”

Some romantic advice: “Well, what I think really makes a girl feel special is to propose through a Jumbotron at a major league baseball game.”

On how to enjoy her recent work: “Do you play the Secret Life drinking game? You have to take a shot every time you hear the word ‘sex.'”

Sadly, Molly had to eventually leave to put her own kids to bed. You could still feel the Reddit kids swooning. Looks like Hollywood doesn’t have to be afraid of AMA interviews anymore. Now here’s Molly in her most important cinematic moment, handing out more good advice for teens in 2001’s Not Another Teen Movie:
