You know her best as the ultimate adolescent, star of the John Hughes trifecta—Sixteen Candles, Breakfast Club, and Pretty in Pink. Now, Molly Ringwald is back with a book that combines personal reflections with the kind of advice most often whispered confidentially in ladies’ rooms. Molly Ringwald is in the house, talking with Larry about her career and tips for aging gracefully in her book, Getting the Pretty Back: Friendships, Family and Finding the Perfect Lipstick. We'll also sneak a listen to Ringwald singing "Exactly Like You," from her forthcoming jazz album.
