As The Breakfast Club returns to theaters after 30 years, the movie's breakout star, Ally Sheedy, spoke to us about the teen classic and how it gave her cred with her genderqueer daughter.
When you were thinking of the character, was "goth" a thing?
I don't think so. Molly told me earlier that the Cure had some music out then, so that look was out there. But I didn't know the Cure. I don't know when the "goth" term happened, but it was afterwards. As well as emo and all that. I just wanted this character to look like the cool girl that hung out with the Beats.
