Molly Ringwald, '80s movie teen queen, thinks that Duckie, her ostensible love interest in Pretty in Pink, was gay.

"Duckie doesn't know he's gay. I think he loves Andie in the way that [my gay best friend] always loved me. That ending fell so flat -- it bombed at all the screenings," Ringwald says in an interview with Out.com. "I didn't realize it then -- I just knew that my character shouldn't end up with him, because we didn't have that sort of chemistry. If John [Hughes] was here now, and I could talk to him, I think that he would completely acknowledge that."
