Accorrding to IMDB (and remember that people can put whatever they want there) she's divorced from her (now ex-)husband, and has been living in New York for the past three years with her writer/editor boyfriend, where she writes book reviews and celebrity profiles for newspapers. She had a daughter on October 22 2003.

It's cool to see some of the roles she could have had: as well as the famed 'Amanda Jones' role in Some Kind Of Wonderful that she turned down, she also apparently said no to Demi Moore's role in Ghost, and Julia Roberts' role in Pretty Woman. Add to that her mother not showing her the script for Laura Dern's role in Blue Velvet (it disturbed her too much to even consider telling her daughter about it) and her career could have been very, very different.

Kat this is the most recent info I could find:

Updated: 11/28/2004

Born: February 18, 1968, Roseville, California

Claim to Fame: Famous for her teen movies and member of the famed "Brat Pack" in the 80's. Before finding success on the big screen she was a regular on the TV series "Facts of Life."

She now is very active in the theater (more about it below).

Family Life: Valery Lameignere (July 1999 - November 2002)

Gave birth to first child with Panio Gianopoulos: Mathilda Ereni, born October 22, 2003 in New York City.

Her first acting break was as Kate in the West Coast production of "Annie".

Where Is She Now: For many years Molly lived in France and has recently moved back to the U.S.

Active in Theater. In April of 2003 she starred in a Broadway production of "Enchanted April" as Rose.

In August 2004 she appeared as Sally in "When Harry Met Sally" at the Haymarket Theatre, London thru September 2004.

Just opened on Broadway In Woody Allen's "A Second Hand Memory" (November 22nd).

Her most notable film role of late was in "Not Another Teen Movie" for which she was nominated for an MTV Movie Award for Best Cameo.

Trivia: Is fluent in French.

Molly released an album at the age of 6 entitled, "I Wanna Be Loved By You, Molly Sings". She is the youngest daughter of Bob Ringwald, the blind jazz pianist. At age five she starred in a stage production of "Alice in Wonderland", playing the dormouse.

Turned down the Julia Roberts role in Pretty Woman (1990) and the Demi Moore role in Ghost (1990)

Tried out for the role of Allison in "The Breakfast Club", but the director gave her the role of Claire. Ally Sheedy is quoted as saying "I'm glad you didn't [get it] because I could never have played your part."

She was also on the TV show "The Facts of Life."

Refused the Lea Thompson role in "Some Kind of Wonderful", ending her successful business relationship with John Hughes, who was said to be furious.

Her parents owned a cafeteria in Downtown Los Angeles

David Lynch sent her the screenplay of "Blue Velvet", in the hope that she would be interested in playing the role of Sandy, which was eventually played by Laura Dern. However, Molly's mother read it first and because it disturbed her, she never showed it to Molly for consideration.

I read on CHUD.com that they are doing 32 candles with her and Anthony Micheal Hall on the USA network. It is 16 years later and the 2 of them are married.
