Molly Ringwald Net Worth $11 Million
Molly Ringwald was born to a blind jazz pianist-father, Bob Ringwald, and mother Adele – a chef. She has always been passionate about acting, which resulted in her first role when she was only five, appearing in a play of “Alice Through the Looking Glass”, and not much later recording her first album entitled “I Wanna Be Loved by You” with her father’s band. Ringwald’s career began expanding, and at the age of ten she made appearances in “The New Mickey Mouse Club”, and had roles in such television series as “Facts of Life” with Charlotte Rae and “Different Strokes” with Conrad Bain and Gary Coleman. Her net worth was already well set.
Before her major breakthrough in acting, Molly Ringwald had not only performed some of her more memorable roles, but had started a successful singing career; in 1980, she was featured on two Disney albums as a lead vocalist. Around the time, Ringwald was already on the path to increasing her public recognition, as well as her net worth. Molly Ringwald’s real emergence came when she joined a cast of Emilio Estevez, Paul Gleason and Judd Nelson to star in a coming-of-age film directed by John Hughes “The Breakfast Club”. The movie that had an initial budget of only $1 million turned out to be a box office success with over $51 million grossed worldwide, was considered to be one of the best movies of 1985, and was awarded a Silver Bucket of Excellence and featured on the list of the Best 1000 Movies Ever compiled by The New York Times Magazine.
Following the immense success of Hughes’ film, Molly Ringwald starred in yet another romantic movie directed by John Hughes entitled “Pretty in Pink”, co-starring with Harry Dean Stanton and Annie Potts which became an instant hit, grossing over $41 million worldwide. As she began to mature as an actress, Molly Ringwald desired to turn away from teen roles, and instead tried to portray older characters, the first of which is considered to be in the romantic comedy starring Robert Downey Jr. “The Pick-Up Artist”. Ringwald continued her successful movie appearances with “Strike It Rich” and “Fresh Horses”, steadily improving her net worth.
Even though Molly’s commercial success has declined over the years, she is still considered to be one of the best and most inspirational teenage stars of all time. Her roles in John Hughes’ movies earned her a cult following and a spot on Time’s list of Top 10 Teen Idols. A famous actress, dancer and a singer with an estimated net worth of $11 million, Molly Ringwald has been a recipient and a nominee of such awards as Golden Globe Awards, Young Artist Awards, as well as MTV Movie Awards.
In her personal life, Molly was married to Valery Lameignère (1999-2002), and has been married to Panio Gianopoulos, a Greek-American writer and book editor, since 2007; they have a daughter and twins, one of each.

Book reviewer for the Hartford Courant newspaper in Connecticut, and writes entertainment profiles for the Westchester Journal News (NY). 
Auditioned for one of the lead roles in Ghost (1990). The character she was tested for was ironically named Molly. (That part ultimately went to Demi Moore, a fellow member of the so-called Brat Pack.)
Made the cover of Time magazine in 1986.
David Lynch sent her the screenplay of Blue Velvet (1986), 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.
Her parents owned a cafeteria in Downtown Los Angeles
[In 2010, she recalled getting fired from The Facts of Life (1979) during its second season in 1980] You know, Nancy McKeon sort of replaced me, in a way. They were trimming down the cast to just four girls, and originally I was going to be one of those girls. But then they changed their mind, decided to go with Nancy McKeon, and booted me out.
[on Liza Minnelli's determination] It's part of her family history - she's a Hollywood royal. So when you think of Sally Bowles, you immediately think of Liza because she was a character who so desperately wanted to come out on top after facing back-to-back betrayal.
I have to accept the fact that these films have had a fantastic effect on people, and to deny that doesn't make any sense until I do something that has the same cultural and social impact of those movies. That's just the way it is.
I think I was blessed to be given the opportunity to be in those [Brat Pack] movies. I think they're great movies, and I'm proud of my work in them. But on the other hand, to talk about something I did so long ago when I have continued to work and do other things is a little tiring. I just get bored. I keep going back to those movies when I don't have anything new to say about them.
