Anthony Michael Hall and Molly Ringwald were a 1980s power couple, and it all started with a bold move by Ringwald. Hall, 56, shared an exclusive story with Us Weekly about how Ringwald confessed her feelings to him during the filming of The Breakfast Club.

The Unexpected Confession

“One of the funniest things that happened during the making of The Breakfast Club was Molly Ringwald cornering me in the school hallway to tell me she had a big crush on me,” Hall revealed. This unexpected confession led to the two actors dating, making Hall’s character, Brian Johnson, the one who “got the girl in the end.”

Fun Facts

Hall’s pet peeve is negativity, and he loves to vacation in Harbour Island in the Bahamas. He was an ace pitcher in his Little League days and enjoys taking bike rides along the coast to decompress. His guilty pleasure is his Porsche 911 4S Carrera, and his favorite smell is the ocean breeze off the Pacific.Hall’s story is a testament to the power of taking risks and following one’s passions, both on and off the screen.
