    “I was taken advantage of,” Ringwald said on WTF‘ podcast. “You can’t be a young actress in Hollywood and not have predators around.” The actress added that she was “definitely in questionable situations” as a young actor, but she relied on her “incredible survival instinct and a pretty big superego” to “figure out a way to protect myself” from predators in the industry.

    She also added that she didn’t much of a social life in the industry as she said, “I never really felt like I was part of a community when I was in Hollywood, just because I was so young, really. I wasn’t into going out to clubs. I feel like I’m more social now than I was then. I was just too young.”
