40 Rare and Mesmerizing Photos of the Brat Pack

The Brat Pack ran the ’80s. Emilio Estevez, Anthony Michael Hall, Rob Lowe, Andrew McCarthy, Demi Moore, Judd Nelson, Molly Ringwald, and Ally Sheedy were the stars everyone looked up to—and the friend group everyone wanted to be part of. At least two of these actors (and sometimes more) costarred in over 10 hit coming-of-age films throughout the decade, including Sixteen Candles (1984), The Breakfast Club (1985), St. Elmo’s Fire (1985), Pretty in Pink (1986), and About Last Night (1986), among many others.

The “Brat Pack” nickname was first coined by New York Magazine writer David Blum, who was working on a feature about Emilio Estevez. After being invited to the Hard Rock Café with the actor and his friends, however, the piece went in a different direction. It was especially critical of Estevez, Rob Lowe, and Judd Nelson, all of whom felt betrayed by the journalist. The harsh story—something Blum later admitted he wished he never published—made the group go their separate ways.

“Emilio called me the day the piece came out, and he said, ‘How could you do this to me? My friends hate me now and won’t speak to me. You completely betrayed me. I thought we were friends. I thought you liked me,'” Blum told the author of You Couldn’t Ignore Me If You Tried: The Brat Pack, John Hughes, and Their Impact on a Generation, Susannah Gora. Years later, Ally Sheedy looked back on it all: “[The article] just destroyed it. I had felt truly a part of something, and that guy just blew it to pieces,” she told Gora.

Take a look back at the Brat Pack’s best moments throughout the years—as well as the actors with some unofficial members of the group, like Robert Downey Jr., Tom Cruise, and more.
