The term “Brat Pack” was coined by writer David Blum from New York magazine to describe a group of actors who starred in classic, coming of age ’80s films who were ridiculously famous, wealthy and young. This group of young actors ruled the ’80s; however, many of them (if not all) were unable to maintain that level of fame and success into the ‘90s and beyond.
8. Molly Ringwald
Known as the greatest teen star of all time, Molly Ringwald is best known for her roles in “Sixteen Candles,” “The Breakfast Club” and “Pretty in Pink.” During the 90s, Ringwald turned down some pretty major roles in “Pretty Women” and “Ghost,” which solidified the careers of Julia Roberts and Demi Moore. One of the only major roles she has had since her Brat Pack days is on “The Secret Life of the American Teenager.”
