Throwback Photos of the Brat Pack Hanging Out Together in the 1980s

Nearly 40 years after this group of actors were dubbed the Brat Pack, fans are gearing up to hear more first-hand accounts from the faces behind the name in the upcoming documentary, BRATS.

“It had professional ramifications,” director Andrew McCarthy, a member of the group, told PEOPLE about the cheeky nickname in an interview ahead of the film’s premiere. “The public embraced us, but the business reacted to it in a negative way.”

On the tails of the movie’s premiere at the 2024 Tribeca Film Festival last week — for which several stars stepped out — the film will debut on Hulu on June 13.

Here, enjoy some of the best throwback shots from the likes of Molly Ringwald, Demi Moore, Ally Sheedy, Rob Lowe, Emilio Estevez, Judd Nelson, Andrew McCarthy, Anthony Michael Hall and Jon Cryer to give you all the ’80s feels.

In the midst of riding the Brat Pack wave, Emilio Estevez and Demi Moore began dating and got engaged in 1985. Though the two never wed, they reunited years later to play a couple onscreen in his 2006 film Bobby.

Here, the two stepped out to support the premiere of the classic 1980s film Pretty in Pink, which starred fellow Brat Packers Molly Ringwald, Jon Cryer and Andrew McCarthy.

During the same event, Demi Moore posed with Ally Sheedy, her St. Elmo’s Fire costar. Earlier this year, Moore shared her thoughts about the nickname she and her costars were given back in the day.

“For me, I didn’t love it, being thought of as a brat because I thought it kind of diminished us as professionals,” she shared. “But I didn’t carry it.”

While maybe not considered an official member of the Brat Pack, there’s no denying that Michael J. Fox was one of the most famous actors of the ’80s — so it’s no surprise he spent time with the likes of Rob Lowe.
