She’s best known for teen movies like The Breakfast Club but actress Molly Ringwald showed her acting chops alongside famous actor and director John Cassavettes in his film Tempest, based on Shakespeare’s The Tempest, in her real feature debut – and now is married to Greek-American editor and writer Panio Gianopoulos, from Massachusetts.
Ringwald showed up in a funny Super Bowl ad for Avocados from Mexico but the 51-year-old is especially proud of her family and daughter, Mathilda, 16, and shared photos of her modeling a mini-skirt while on Puerto Rico, looking a lot like – Molly.
The site 2Paragraphs said fans commented on the resemblance between mother and daughter. Ringwald captioned it: “World, get ready for her.” Ringwald will appear next on the big screen in The Kissing Booth 2, a sequel to the 2018 Netflix teen romantic comedy film.
To her fans, she remains the sweet teen of John Hughes’ coming-of-age films that included Pretty in Pink where she could melt a steel door with her looks but it’s clear she’s grown up and now her daughter is carrying on the legacy of looks. Like mother, like daughter.
