Molly Ringwald on life after the big screen

Molly Ringwald is much more than just Pretty in Pink.

The former teen star is the focus of out IDEA segment tonight, which is all about reinvention.

She may be most famous for her sweetheart roles in iconic teen movies such as Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, and Pretty in Pink. But that was more than 25 years ago, and since then Molly has been a queen of reinvention. She's performed on Broadway, recorded a jazz album, and is still acting on ABC Family's "Secret Life of the American Teenager."

Tonight, she's OutFront with her newest project, her first novel titled "When it Happens to You."
