Molly Ringwald makes us all feel better about growing old.

Are you comfortable with your age now?

Molly Ringwald: Well, when you’ve been in a movie called Sixteen Candles, there’s really no point in lying about your age. People have grown up with me. I’m comfortable with who I am. I mean, there are days when I think, Where did my 20s go? or Where did my 30s go? But there are other days where I feel like, wow, I like the person that I’ve become. I also feel like I have an intellectual confidence that I don’t think that I had when I was younger; that you can’t really have—or you shouldn’t necessarily have—when you’re younger, because you haven’t really experienced enough.
