Top 80's Movie Actors: Where Are They Now?

When you think of the best movies of the 80′s, you probably think of movies like Pretty In Pink, The Breakfast Club, Dirty Dancing and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. To sate your curiosity and ours, we’re following up with the casts of these three wonderful movies to see where they are now.

To kick off our list, let’s take a look at the main cast of the movie Pretty In Pink. Molly Ringwald stars in the movie as Andie and has since gone on to great things. She has done a television role in The Secret Life Of The American Teenager, has written two books and has most recently recorded a jazz album called Except Sometimes.

Jon Cryer has been a more visible actor since his Brat Pack days. He currently stars as Dr. Alan Harper in the television show Two And A Half Men. Duckie’s making the big bucks now on the small screen, no?

After playing the “richie” kid Steff in the movie, James Spader went on to do a great number of movies and television performances. He landed the movies Sex, Lies & Videotape along with Secretary and is most currently known for his role in the television series Boston Legal. Where he is now is currently filming the new flick Avengers: Age Of Ultron.

Andrew McCarthy starred as Blane in the movie and has done some good movies since. These days, he hasn’t done much in the way of movies or television, but authored a book titled The Longest Way Home: One Man’s Quest for the Courage to Settle Down. He also is noted as a travel editor at large for National Geographic Traveler magazine.

Patrick Swayze's Widow Lisa Niemi Is Engaged!

Patrick Swayze’s widow Lisa Niemi has found love once again. Congratulations to her on the announcement that she is engaged to jeweler Albert DePrisco. People magazine has the scoop:

“Albert proposed to Lisa on Christmas Eve,” the rep says.

The couple met through mutual friends at a birthday party for Niemi and have been dating for a year and a half.

A year after Swayze died, Niemi, 57, told PEOPLE she was open to the possibility of being married again.

“I would love companionship love. Absolutely. I hope I’m not one of these women who never want to have another relationship,” she said. “But who knows, that’s another bridge I’ll cross when I come to it. I may get there and go, I don’t know. But I like to think that I can.”

We are happy that she was able to get past the bad things that have happened in her life to move on and get close to a new man. Kudos to her. What say you, Swayze fans?

Patrick Swayze’s Widow Reacts To Kirstie Alley’s Love Accusations

Patrick Swayze's Widow Reacts To Kirstie Alley's Love Accusations

Kirstie Alley has been on the promotional tour for her new memoir in which she claims that she and her “North And South” co-star Patrick Swayze were in love. She also claimed that it took everything inside of her not to run away with John Travolta, as well. As a matter of fact, this book is littered with “should’ve, would’ve, could’ve” love stories. Narcissism, perhaps?

Apparently after claiming that she had an emotional affair of sorts with Patrick, his wife Lisa Niemi had something to say about it. Reportedly, she feels betrayed that her once close friend that she just wanted to let go and scream at Kirstie, “I hate you! Patrick never loved you! How could you do this to me?”

Lisa and Patrick were married for 34 years and he passed away in 2009 from pancreatic cancer. Since, she has just begun dating Albert DePrisco, but she is not happy about Kirstie’s claims regarding her former husband.

A source said, “Lisa has so many happy memories of her marriage to Patrick. Now, Kirstie has sullied those memories by trying to cash in on her friendship with him.”

In her memoir, Kirstie said that she and Patrick tried to “avoid going to that road”, but claimed that they couldn’t help falling in love with one another. She writes, “He exuded that anything was possible. The emotions and dialogue escalated daily. One night, toward the end of the shoot, I got fairly drunk, dirty-danced for hours and then succumbed. We made out with each other.”

They didn’t go all of the way according to Kirstie, but she did say that he “asked me one last time to divorce my husband and make a new life with him. He was very persuasive. The decision of whether to run off with him was torturous.”

Uh huh. Are you buying any of this?

Kirstie Alley Was Rejected By Patrick Swayze

Kirstie Alley Was Rejected By Patrick Swayze

Kirstie Alley recently revealed to “Entertainment Tonight” that she and Patrick Swayze were in love with one another during the filming of their show “North And South” in 1985. In the same interview, she also referred to John Travolta as the love of her life and said that it took everything she had in her not to run away and marry him. Now, she’s diving deeper into the Patrick Swayze story, saying that he basically rejected her advances for sex.

She said, “It was just too much of an attraction. I will say that at the time Patrick was drinking a lot, Patrick’s been very public about that.”

In her book, “The Art Of Men”, she said that after a night of partying with the actor, she tried to pounce on him, but was rebuffed. She revealed that she told him, “I want to make love with you. I just don’t care anymore, let’s just do it.”

He responded, “No. Come on, you’re drunk. Kirstie, you don’t really want to do it. You’re not that kind of girl.”

She added, “I have no idea if Lisa knows anything about Patrick and I…I was probably the least of Lisa’s problems with Patrick.”

Kirstie Alley Says John Travolta Isn’t Gay; Was The Love Of Her Life

Kirstie Alley Says John Travolta Isn't Gay; Was The Love Of Her Life

Kirstie Alley is currently promoting her new book, so of course she’s letting some old skeletons out of the closet. Just yesterday, Kirstie copped to falling in love with her “North And South” co-star Patrick Swayze. We weren’t even aware that she had an emotional affair of sorts with him. At least they didn’t go forth with a physical affair, right?

In that same interview, she also said that John Travolta was the love of her life and it took everything she had in her not to run off and marry him. Then, of course, she was hit with the “gay” backlash. Considering how many masseuses came out of the woodwork, we wouldn’t say that the rumors were exactly unfounded. Still, she is now defending John — because that’s what fellow Scientologists do for one another….no?

Kirstie sat down with Barbara Walters and when she asked about John, Kirstie said, “I know John with all my heart and soul; he’s not gay.”

She did offer up a theory as to why the rumors won’t go away. She said, “I think in some weird way, in Hollywood, if someone gets big enough and famous enough, and they’re not out doing drugs and they’re not womanizing, what do you say about them?”

Yesterday, she said of John, “Believe me, it took everything I had inside, outside, whatever, to not run off and marry John and be with John for the rest of my life. I feel like when you marry someone, you’re supposed to work hard at it and you’re supposed to make it work.”

At the time they knew each other, Kirstie was still married to Parker Stevenson, while John was single. She and Parker divorced in 1997, but John was already married to Kelly Preston as of 1991.
