Did Molly Ringwald lobby unsuccessfully for the part made famous by Ally Sheedy in 'The Breakfast Club' -- the vodka-swilling loner Allison Reynolds?

The longtime allegation and Internet report is absolutely false, Ringwald insists to PopEater.

"It's not true," Ringwald told us in an exclusive video.

She adds that she could have had the part if she wanted it. "I was initially approached by John [Hughes] to play Allison (Reynolds), and it was definitely not the character I wanted to play," Ringwald says. "I really wanted to play the character of Claire, who was actually called Cathy in the original script. I lobbied for that role." Watch
