The studded leather jacket that Lisa, played by Kelly LeBrock, wore in the John Hughes 1980s teen comedy Weird Science is up for auction. Weird Science, a movie about two unpopular teenagers, Gary (Anthony Michael Hall) and Wyatt, who create their perfect woman on the computer to help them build their confidence and turn them into ‘cool kids’. She helps them deal with Wyatt’s asshole brother Chet, a young Bill Paxton, and their bully, Robert Downey Jr. She even helps them throw a party, “you know, there’s going to be sex, drugs, rock-n-roll… chips, dips, chains, whips… You know, your basic high school orgy type of thing. I mean, uh, I’m not talking candlewax on the nipples, or witchcraft or anything like that, no, no, no. Just a couple of hundred kids running around in their underwear, acting like complete animals.”
The auction estimate for the jacket is $30,000-$50,000. Although for that money, you could probably just get Gary and Wyatt to build you a robot. The auction starts on Wednesday, June 28th.
