Writer-director John Hughes, who gave voice to 1980s and '90s youth in his films "The Breakfast Club," "Ferris Bueller's Day Off" and "Home Alone," died of a heart attack while walking in Manhattan Thursday at 59. Hughes, who lived in suburban Chicago, became famous for his loving portrayals of teen angst during the go-go years of the '80s and early '90s. "I was a fan of both his work and a fan of him as a person," Macaulay Culkin said in a statement to People. "The world has lost a quintessential filmmaker whose influence will be felt for generations." (Photo: WENN)
