Anne Juergensplayed by Molly Ringwald
What a year Anne's had! Husband George cheated on her, she cheated on him, their older daughter had a baby, and then George moved out, taking their younger daughter with him. She took a job at a hot dog stand, where she met an architect, David, who offered her first a job and then a date. Then she got pregnant and David proposed, but George drove him away. After George and Ashley moved back in, Anne gave birth to baby Robie. Then she went to stay with her mom, where she spent some time with an old ex, which made George see red. Now they're living together again as a family but still divorced, and George is pushing her to retie the knot. She's just not sure yet. Through it all, Anne's remained a loving, caring mother to her girls. Amy may not like hearing the truth about motherhood and its responsibilities, but Anne's always there to set her straight.
Molly began her film career at age 13 with a Golden Globe-nominated performance in Paul Mazursky's The Tempest. In the '80s, she starred in such beloved coming-of-age movies as Sixteen Candles and Pretty in Pink, then moved to Paris in 1992 and acted in such films as Seven Sundays and King Lear, a screen adaptation directed by French film legend Jean-Luc Godard. Molly's recent film credits include the Australian film Cut, as well as In the Weeds and Cowboy Up.
On TV, you might have seen her in the series Townies, Stephen King's The Stand, or in the Emmy-nominated Something to Live for: The Alison Gertz Story. But Molly's also done a ton of theater. She starred as Sally Bowles in Cabaret on Broadway, in a London stage production of When Harry Met Sally, and in the Tony-nominated Enchanted April. She also appeared off-Broadway in Tick Tick Boom, in a recent off-Broadway production of Modern Orthodox, and in a national tour of Sweet Charity.
