In the book You Couldnt Ignore Me If You Tried: The Brat Pack, John Hughes, And Their Impact On A Generation (Crown), out Tuesday (Feb. 9), film journalist Susannah Gora tells the behind-the-scenes tales from movies like The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, and Say Anything.
She interviewed the stars of these iconic flicks to get the inside scoop, and discovered many interesting, unknown tidbits.
For example, even though Molly Ringwald played the popular girl in The Breakfast Club, she had a full-fledged relationship with the geek, Anthony Michael Hall.
Gora dishes that this wasnt the only on-set romance, since all of the Brat Packers were either best buds or boyfriend and girlfriend.
Judd Nelson and Emilio Estevez were known for their on-set pranks, including changing everyones food order so they got gross lunches at their hotel.
