On getting to know Hughes:
Ringwald: I remember the first thing that I saw of him�"I didn't know what he looked like; I didn't know anything�"were his tennis shoes. He was really into sneakers. It was not what I really thought of as a film director. His hair was spiky. He looked kind of relatable to me.
Broderick: He had his own cool. He was not a nerd. He had cool glasses, a cool haircut�"well, it might not look so good now.
