There’s no doubt about it, Molly Ringwald is best known for her work as a young actress in John Hughes films like Pretty In Pink, Sixteen Candles, and The Breakfast Club. Despite a steady acting career since, Ringwald will always be best known for the films she starred in during the mid-’80s. Of course, this doesn’t seem to bother the actress too much, and she’s even branched out into other areas, writing both a non-fiction book about finding "the pretty" (Getting The Pretty Back), and a book of short stories (When It Happens To You). Still an icon, Ringwald has done her fair share of literary adaptations as well, from comics and horror to YA adaptations in the works. And we’ve got the best of them here for you.

With his dark hair, flawless bone structure and twinkling eyes, it’s no wonder that Tom Hiddleston has a legion of fans around the world…and his acting ability doesn’t hurt, either! This dapper Brit has won a Golden Globe, an Empire Award, an MTV Movie Award, and more. Not bad for a career that doesn’t yet span twenty years (and that’s not including his work on the stage, either). Clearly, there’s much more to Mr. Hiddleston than just his dashing good looks and a heaping dose of charm. Don’t be surprised if this Cambridge-educated actor ends up holding an Oscar before too long.
