Your Former Teenage Crush Gets Jazzy
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
NEW YORK — Molly Ringwald has moved from "The Breakfast Club" to the jazz club. The redheaded actress who describes herself as "your former teen-age crush" in her Twitter bio will always live in her generation's memories for portraying the angst of high school life as an everyday girl, teen princess and outsider in her iconic 1980s films "Sixteen Candles," "The Breakfast Club," and "Pretty In Pink" with writer-director John Hughes. Now the 45-year-old has taken on a new role as a jazz singer with the release last week of her album "Except Sometimes," a collection of Great American Songbook and Broadway tunes. She sings about romance from a mature, adult perspective, interpreting such tunes as "I Get Along Without You Very Well" and "The Very Thought of You." She also pays tribute to the late Hughes by reclaiming "Don't You (Forget About Me)," the Simple Minds' theme to "The Breakfast Club," turning it into a jazz ballad. She believes her acting experience has h ...

Teddy Wayne: Interview With Panio Gianopoulos, Author of A Familiar Beast
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Panio Gianopoulos is the author of A Familiar Beast (Nouvella Books). A recipient of a New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship, his writing has appeared in Tin House, Northwest Review, Salon, The Hartford Courant, The Brooklyn Rail, FiveChapters, and The Rattling Wall, among others. I spoke with the Los Angeles-based author about why he chose the novella form, the likeability of his protagonist, and what draws him to quiet, subtle stories. How would you describe A Familiar Beast to someone who hasn't read it?" A Familiar Beast is the story of Marcus, a man recently disgraced and reeling from divorce, as he searches for redemption. Out of desperation and loneliness, he goes on a hunting trip with a friend he hasn't seen since high school, and the book follows their strange and darkly comic weekend. Your protagonist, Marcus, is a man who should be easy to hate, yet despite having an affair while his wife is pregnant he remains sympathetic and, in fact, easy to relate ...

Molly Ringwald looks at betrayal in book
San Francisco Chronicle - over 4 years
Molly Ringwald looks at betrayal in book BOOKS Actress focuses on universal experience in debut novel Molly Ringwald, who became a teen idol for her roles in "Sixteen Candles," "Pretty in Pink" and "The Breakfast Club," is now 44 and living in Los Angeles with her husband, Panio Gianopoulos, and their three young children, Mathilda, Adele and Roman. Why betrayal as the subject for your novel? The book starts with a marital betrayal, but the stories are really about all kinds of betrayal. All along, I had in mind a different ending, something more cinematic, like Olivia walking into school. [...] once I have Marina in that shop and Marina says (to the saleslady) that the dress "is for my daughter," that was it. Didn't Bret Easton Ellis read this novel and comment on that particular scene, saying in his mind that Marina should have said, "It's for my son"? Have you thought about what you would do if your son announced he was a she? [...] I don't think you ev ...

(Still) Pretty In Pink: Molly Ringwald Joins The Twittersphere
Glitterazzi - almost 5 years
At first, I thought it was a joke when my friend, Bennett, tweeted and said he wanted to introduce me to Molly Ringwald. Then, right there -- before my very eyes -- was a tweet to me and the gal that inspired me to turn my hair red and wear a pink dress when I was a kid. Yes, folks, Molly has joined the Twittersphere (@MollyRingwald). For those really young bucks out there who missed the decade between 1979 and 1990, Molly was the Angelina Jolie of the '80s. Not only did she make appearances on show, like "Diff'rent Strokes" and "The Facts Of Life," she was the star of classic, coming-of-age movies, such as "16 Candles," "Pretty In Pink" and "The Breakfast Club." All of that fame was fun, but she needed a break. So, she did what any quirky gal would do ... she turned down the leads in "Ghost" and "Pretty Woman," made her hair blonde and moved to Paris. Today, Molly, 43, is a mom and wife. She married Panio Gianopoulos, a Greek-American writer and book editor, and had three kids, ...

FEW actresses want to admit hitting 40. Molly Ringwald wrote a book about it. ''On February 18, 2008, I turned 40 years old,'' she writes on Page 1 in ''Getting the Pretty Back,'' just released by It Books, an imprint of HarperCollins. ''It hardly seemed possible.'' And, she adds, ''No amount of reruns on cable is going to change that.'' Equal
