During an appearance on 'The View', the former star of 'The Breakfast Club' admits that her decision to put her Hollywood career on hold was a big risk at the time.

AceShowbiz - Actress Molly Ringwald will always cherish her time in Paris after her early Hollywood success, because life in France helped her stay grounded.

"The Breakfast Club" star made a film in the French capital in her early 20s and moved there, putting her Hollywood career on hold.

Molly admits it was a big risk at the time, but it really worked out well for her.

"I really grew up in the public eye... and I was really like a bug under glass," Ringwald tells "The View". "I really felt like I needed to go somewhere, where people didn't necessarily know who I was..."

"I really feel like I got to grow up, I got to know what it was like to live some place else that thinks it's the center of the universe... and so it was really nice to get a different point of view... and I also learned to speak French, which I had always wanted to do."

"It was a really healthy thing."

Molly, now a mother of three, also talked about raising her daughters during the TV appearance. She admitted that she is nervous about rewatching her classic teen movies with her 12-year-old twins, because her daughter is "super woke" and she fears she'll pick the plots apart.

"My daughter Adele also happens to be the most woke individual that I think I've ever met, so I know that it's not gonna be easy - she's gonna say, 'Why did this happen? Why did you allow that?' " she shared. "I thought I'd start with 'Pretty in Pink' and then work my way to 'The Breakfast Club' and I know I have to do it soon because they're really at that age... All their friends have seen them [films]."
