Actress Molly Ringwald was trending this morning on Twitter, after new pics showing her walking out in NYC were released.

While the pics appeared innocuous, they started a debate on "how well" the 50 year old actress is aging.

Many of Molly's fans were happy with her looks. But others suggested that she had multiple plastic surgery operations to maintain her look.

Molly is best known for being the teen actress who was a part of the "Brat Pack," a group of '80s actors who frequently appeared together onscreen. Her best-known movies include Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, and Pretty in Pink.

Molly turns 51 years old in a few weeks:


Ringwald was born in Roseville, California, a city northeast of Sacramento, the daughter of Adele Edith (née Frembd), a housewife and chef, and Robert Scott “Bob” Ringwald, jazz pianist who is blind. Ringwald has two siblings, Beth and Kelly, and an older brother who died before she was born. She started her acting career at age five, appearing in a stage production of Alice Through the Looking Glass as the Dormouse. The next year, she recorded “I Wanna Be Loved by You”, a music album of Dixieland jazz with her father and his group, the Fulton Street Jazz Band

Ringwald has stated that she was very aware of her public image during her teen years and that she tried to be a good role model for her fans. When asked about For Keeps (1988), Ringwald said, “I didn’t want to give the wrong message to teenagers. I sort of felt a certain responsibility – I mean, I was a very, very famous teenager and I thought a lot of teenagers were looking up to me and emulating me, and I really didn’t want to make a movie that said in any way that having a baby at that age was going to be easy.”
