I drink Kristen Stewart’s blood to stay young, says Molly Ringwald

Washington: Molly Ringwald has revealed that the secret behind her sweet, girl-next-door image is drinking Kristen Stewart’s blood.

The ‘80s teen icon, now 44, participated in an AMA--Ask Me Anything--chat with her fans on Reddit.com on Wednesday, during which she talked on various topics ranging from working with John Hughes, to the surprising staple in her anti-aging regimen.

Ringwald started off the conversation by typing, “Hi everyone. I’m Molly Ringwald. You probably know me from Sixteen Candles, Breakfast Club and Pretty in Pink. Though I do lots of other things like write books, speak a little French, and until I started a Twitter account three days ago, raise three kids.”

“How did you manage to get hotter with age?” a magazine quoted a fan as asking.

“I drink the blood of Kristen Stewart,” Ringwald replied.

The actress quickly switched gears, dishing about her favourite behind-the-scene moment from her 30-plus years in the biz.

“When I did the smoking doobage scene [in The Breakfast Club]...it was basically all improvised and John [Hughes] just let the camera roll for twenty minutes,” Ringwald revealed.

“He was so psyched...that he dragged my mother into the room...so she could see how brilliant her daughter was. Of course, my mom was horrified,” she said.

Ringwald also admitted she makes an effort--when she’s able--to catch up with her fellow former Brat Packers.

“I see them all from time to time but not every day,” she shared.

“Weirdly, I was having dinner with Bret Easton Ellis who I hadn’t seen in a decade...when we saw James Spader [her Pretty in Pink costar] touring the kitchen. I think it was surreal for everyone involved, like a wormhole from the eighties opened up,” she added.
