Molly Ringwald was born on February 18, 1968, in Roseville, California. She was only five when she started performing, first on stage. In 1979, she debuted on television as Molly Parker on the NBC sitcom The Facts of Life. Meanwhile, she made her cinematic debut in the 1982 film Miranda Dimitrius. She first rose to fame for her role as Samantha “Sam” Baker in the coming-of-age film Sixteen Candles. Her subsequent roles on the big screen established her as a teen icon. This was after her performances in the films The Breakfast Club and Pretty in Pink.
She next starred in the feature films The Pick-up Artist (1987), Fresh Horses (1988) and For Keeps (1988). She continued her Hollywood career during the ’90s where she had notable roles in Something to Live for: The Alison Gertz Story (1992) and The Stand (1994). She next starred on the short-lived sitcom Townies. In the 2000s, she became widely known for starring as Anne Juergens on The Secret Life of the American Teenager. More recently, she starred as Paige Wayney on the Canadian series Raising Expectations. She next played Mary Andrews on Riverdale. This year, she had supporting roles in the movies The Kissing Booth and Siberia.
Has Molly Ringwald had Plastic Surgery?
Being a teen icon during the ’80s, it’s easy to spot any major changes on Molly Ringwald’s appearance. Of course, there’d be the process of aging to consider. Nonetheless, many think the actress has had plastic surgery, which intends to deal with her aging in the first place. However, in an interview years ago, she talked about not plastic surgery as not part of her future plans.
“I don’t judge. I understand the pull, but as an actress, I depend on my expressions to get my emotions across. To do something to my face that would inhibit that ability would be a mistake. Otherwise, yeah, you start to look plastic,” Ringwald said. What about Botox? She said: “It’s not the route I want to go. But you could talk to me a year from now and if there’s a line that shows up on my face that really bums me out, I might change my mind.”
