Jon Cryer Reveals Feud with Co-Star from ‘Pretty in Pink’

During the “Brat Pack” era of the 1980s, tensions ran high behind the scenes of the beloved film “Pretty in Pink.” Jon Cryer, who starred in the movie alongside Andrew McCarthy, recently opened up about their off-camera feud. McCarthy, known for assembling members of the group in his upcoming documentary “Brats,” delved into the significance of the “Brat Pack” in ’80s cinema.

In a candid Q&A session at the Tribeca Film Festival, Cryer didn’t hold back, stating, “When we had done ‘Pretty in Pink’ together, we did not get along because he was a d—.” McCarthy, in agreement, admitted to the strained relationship.

The tension between the two actors stemmed from their shared interest in Molly Ringwald’s character, Andie, in the film. Demi Moore, who also worked with Cryer and McCarthy in various projects, weighed in, noting the complexities of their dynamic.

Despite their rocky past, Cryer and McCarthy were able to bury the hatchet during a heartfelt reunion in 2012 on “The View.” The actors, once part of the iconic “Brat Pack,” reflected on their teenage selves and the growth they had experienced since their tumultuous filming days.

The documentary “Brats,” featuring insights from Cryer, McCarthy, and other ’80s stars, is set to premiere on Hulu on June 13th. This glimpse into the behind-the-scenes drama of the “Brat Pack” promises to be a nostalgic and revealing exploration of a bygone era in Hollywood.
