SR: We are still in a state of shock over this....

Famed teen-film director John Hughes, who rose to fame with such coming -of-age films as "The Breakfast Club" and "Pretty in Pink," died of a heart attack Thursday, his spokeswoman confirms to FOX News.


The 59-year-old was taking a morning walk in New York when he went into cardiac arrest, according to Michelle Bega. He was in Manhattan visiting his family.

Hughes was famous for his countless hit movies in the 1980s including "Sixteen Candles," "Home Alone" and "Ferris Bueller's Day Off." His films made such young stars as Molly Ringwald, Demi Moore and Andrew McCarthy household names in the 80s, with fans dubbing the group of actors "The Brat Pack."

Hughes was born in 1950 in Michigan and began his career in the field of advertising. At the time of his death, he lived in Illinois and set many of his films in the Chicago area. He is survived by his wife of 39 years, Nancy, with whom he had two sons, John and James.

SR: Another Legendary Celebrity has left us and we're all little bit poorer....

John....Thank you for the Libertarian Classic FERRIS BUELLER'S DAY OFF

Thank you for showing us in your films that such "Ordinary and beat upon people" like Ducky, Uncle Buck, Kevin McAllister", and Molly Ringwald's Characters from SIXTEEN CANDLES and PRETTY IN PINK can still be the greatest heroes ever....

Thank you for making the 80's quite fun and memorable...

Give all our love to John Candy when you get to Heaven
