Ally Sheedy, Molly Ringwald, Emilio Estevez, Judd Nelson, and Anthony Michael Hall will forever be remembered as the kids who made 'The Breakfast Club' the classic that it's become today. However, each of them have moved on and started their own individual careers, and while some have been successful, others have failed.
Years after the Breakfast Club came out in 1985, we take a look at the cast members and where they are now. Arguably one of the most compelling actresses from the film, Ally Sheedy went downhill after the film came out. She started dating Bon Jovi band member Richie Sambora and became addicted to drugs in addition to become bulimic. After she finally recovered, it was too late to salvage her acting career - so she ended up starring in some bad thrillers and straight-to-video movies.
And then there's Molly Ringwald. Molly was probably the Breakfast Club's biggest breakout star. After starring in The Breakfast Club and Sixteen Candles one year apart, and then landing Pretty In Pink a year later, Ringwald pretty much conquered the teenage market. But then, Molly changed her looks, moved to France, got married, and stopped acting in major films. Talking to her now, she explains, "I don't regret going to France for a second. I'd already been acting professionally for a long time, and I felt like if I was ever gonna do something else for a while,that was the right time. Any time you're successful at a thing, people want you to do it over and over, but I've never been interested in that."
Of course, there's also Emilio Estevez - who's now better known as Charlie Sheen's brother, Judd Nelson - best known for voicing the Transformers cartoons, and Anthony Michael Hall - whose promising career slowed down due to a drinking problem, although he had a lot of immediate success in the 90s.
