There are tons of stars who are around in 2018 that got their start as a teenager in an '80s film. From Patrick Dempsey to Winona Ryder, 91% of people can't identify these 1980s teen stars from an image. Can you?
While actors like Harrison Ford, Bruce Willis, and Arnold Schwarzenegger were household names in the 1980s, many people were starting to notice the new group of teen stars. The decade was led by actors like Matthew Broderick in Ferris Bueller's Day Off and Michael J. Fox in Back to the Future and Teen Wolf. While they were leading the film industry on their own, there was nothing that compared to the elite group of teen stars known as the "Brat Pack." Led by actors like Molly Ringwald, Emilio Estevez, Ally Sheedy, and Judd Nelson, these teens starred in films such as The Breakfast Club and St. Elmo's Fire. This elite group also featured Andrew McCarthy, Anthony Michaell Hall, and Rob Lowe.
