In 1987, Can't Buy Me Love was my FAVORITE movie. I really admired the film's star Amanda Peterson. She was gorgeous and so All-American. I styled my hair just like her and dressed just like her. She seemed the effortless type. The film would eventually become a cult classic, and become a launching pad for it's other star, McDreamy himself, Patrick Dempsey. But today, Amanda Peterson is dead at age 43.
