Then + Now: Andrew McCarthy of ‘Pretty in Pink,’ ‘Weekend at Bernie’s’ + More

Andrew McCarthy Pretty in Pink

Andrew McCarthy was a member of Hollywood’s infamous Brat Pack in the ’80s, but is he still a brat these days?


Andrew McCarthy was a member of the Brat Pack — a group of actors who all starred in films for John Hughes back in the ’80s. Along with McCarthy, the cabal included Molly Ringwald, Rob Lowe, and Emilio Estevez, among several others. McCarthy made us swoon in movies like ‘Pretty in Pink,’ ‘St. Elmo’s Fire,’ and ‘Mannequin.’ He also made us laugh in those silly ‘Weekend at Bernie’s’ movies.

McCarthy never really disappeared, though his popularity did seem to wane after the ’80s ended. He’s starred in several films, including ‘Mulholland Falls’ and ‘The Spiderwick Chronicles,’ but he’s found more steady success on television — he had a lead role in the short-lived series ‘Lipstick Jungle’ with Brooke Shields, and he’s made guest appearances on many high profile shows, like ‘Royal Pains,’ ‘Gossip Girl,’ and ‘White Collar.’ McCarthy is now married to Dolores Rice, with whom he has a daughter named Willow.
