* DeaderThanDisco: Went from being one of the 1980's biggest actresses to doing low-budget (and low-quality) direct-to-video and television projects. Worse, when her career tanked, so did her reputation. She's now considered either a OneHitWonder for ''Film/TheBreakfastClub'' or the personification of everything wrong with teen starlets of the decade, to the point that admitting to being a fan of hers is widely considered the social equivalent of signing your death warrant.

* FanHater / OpinionMyopia: As mentioned, saying you're a fan of hers could potentially earn you scornful looks and accusations of being [[DiscoDan out of touch]], a JadedWashout, or just plain weird.

Added DiffLines:

* BaseBreaker: She's either the greatest teen actress of all time or the absolute worst. Judge for yourself.

* HilariousInHindsight: She shares the same name with the title character of an ''Franchise/AmericanGirl'' film she co-starred in.
* NeverLiveItDown: She's more notorious for her failure to maintain success than for her actual merits. In many ways, she's the poster child of washed-up teen stars, with her JadedWashout tendencies not helping matters.

* DeaderThanDisco: She went from one of the 80's biggest stars to focusing on low-profile movies since ''Betsy's Wedding'' bombed. Worse, when her career tanked, so did her reputation. Today Ringwald is one of the most hated actresses of all time, and it is social taboo to admit to being a fan of hers either now or during her GloryDays.
