On The 25th Anniversary of ‘Clueless,’ Alicia Silverstone Talks About Its Legacy
The actress recounted her favorite memories of the film and her castmates
Even 25 years later, Clueless is still one of the most iconic films. “It’s a glossy teen comedy, biting high school satire, deeply satsifying rom-com, and subversive literary adaptation all at once,” wrote Keaton Bell in Vogue.
In the same magazine, its star Alicia Silverstone talked about the movie’s lasting legacy, her dynamic with her costars, and what she first thought of her character, Cher Horowitz.
“I found Cher on the page to be materialistic and unappealing. And really annoying, to be honest,” Silverstone told Vogue. “But I realized that was just me judging her. Once I started working on her I found all the heart and all the love.”
She also talked about her castmate Brittany Murphy, who passed away in 2009. “I found her so wonderful and I said to Amy right away, ‘I think she’s the one! She was the best one you guys!’ hoping they would agree. She was like, ‘Uh yeah duh. Of course she was the best, she’s the one.’”
