12 Times Judd Nelson Was A Total Dreamboat In The Breakfast Club

Hard to believe it, but 80's bad boy, Judd Nelson turns 57 on November 28. It seems like just yesterday that he starred in The Breakfast Club with the rest of The Brat Pack.

Sure, he's starred in plenty of films since, but our all-time favorite was his portrayal of troublemaker John Bender. Rumor has it that he totally immersed himself in studying for the role - even enrolling in a local high school where he convinced kids and teachers that he was a student!

31 years later, he's still rocking his signature look with the addition of a beard:

From his tough-guy attitude, to his cavalier hair-flip we remember Judd's best John Bender moments:

When he used philosophy as an excuse for vandalism...


When he cussed at the principle...


When you could totally see that, yes, he actually did give a sh*t...

When he lit a match off his teeth - so, so  hot!


When he pretty much burned a hole through Claire with that penetrating gaze...


When he did the hair flip...

When he flirted so hard we nearly fell off the couch...

When he showed off his rad dance moves...

When he did that thing with his lips and we all swooned...


When he said yes/no while looking deeply into Claire's eyes:

When he was obviously touched that Claire gave him her earring...

When he fist-pumped on the football field

Happy Birthday Judd Nelson, you'll always be our 80's dreamboat!
