He’s now a TV director and an award-winning travel writer, but Andrew McCarthy knows what his most memorable film role is, even 30 years later.

McCarthy also reveals how he got his role in Pretty In Pink and that he understands why his character Blane is the romantic ideal for girls who grew up on that movie.

Warning: Spoiler alert! Do not proceed if you have not watched Thursday’s episode of Nashville.
The grieving process has begun on Nashville.
One week after Rayna Jaymes’ (Connie Britton) devastating death on the country music drama, her family and close friends mourned their unexpected loss on Thursday’s episode, titled “I’ll Fly Away.” The show didn’t waste any time showing Rayna’s funeral, with her widower Deacon (Charles Esten) delivering a heartbreaking eulogy by Rayna’s white coffin fit for the country queen.

The actress and musician dated in 2003, and People covered their under-the-radar romance in this vintage cover story below:
One thing you can say for Nicole Kidman: The woman knows how to keep a secret. Throughout the summer, the Oscar-winning actress dismissed inquiries of a romance with rocker Lenny Kravitz with “we’re-just-friends” denials. Yes, she was renting his apartment, but please don’t get the wrong idea. »
