Though she remained best known for her iconic starring role in the teen comedy "Clueless" (1995), Alicia Silverstone enjoyed a long and accomplished acting career. Born in San Francisco to British parents in 1974, Silverstone enjoyed spending summers in England for much of her youth. With her precocious personality and cherubic face, she began modeling at age six and by eight, she was making her TV debut in a Domino's Pizza commercial. Silverstone played a small role on an episode of "The Wonder Years" (ABC, 1988-1993) in 1992, but her breakout year would arrive in 1993, when she landed the starring role in the thriller "The Crush" (1993) in addition to prominent roles in the phenomenally popular music videos for the Aerosmith songs "Cryin'," "Amazin," and "Crazy." These roles raised Silverstone's notoriety and caught the attention of director Amy Heckerling, who knew the young actor would be perfect for her upcoming film "Clueless." The phenomenally popular comedy skyrocketed Silverstone into a level of fame that was difficult to maintain. She landed a plum role as Batgirl in the hotly anticipated "Batman & Robin" (1997), but when the film's overall script and direction were panned by critics, Silverstone's role in it became more of a liability than a boon. After a turn in the comedy "Blast from the Past" (1999), she happily took a step back from the glare of the spotlight in order to grow both as a person and as an artist. She appeared in Kenneth Branagh's Shakespearean adaptation "Love's Labour Lost" (2000) and made her Broadway debut in a 2002 production of "The Graduate." She starred briefly on the cult hit "Miss Match" (NBC, 2003) and took on the role of the naive Lynn in the hit movie "Beauty Shop" (2005) in 2005. That same year, she married musician Christopher Jarecki. Silverstone returned to the stage for a critically acclaimed turn in a production of David Mamet's "Boston Marriage" at the Geffen Playhouse in 2007, and returned to Broadway in 2010 for a starring role in "Time Stands Still." She next appeared opposite Jennifer Garner in the quirky comedy "Butter" (2011), before reuniting with Amy Heckerling for the horror comedy "Vamps" (2012). Silverstone remained a mainstay of the Broadway stage however, later starring in the play "The Performers," which was unfortunately cut short due to the effects of Hurricane Sandy. Silverstone went on to appear with Sharon Stone and Christopher Walken in the fantasy comedy "Gods Behaving Badly" (2013) before starring in an acclaimed 2015 off-Broadway production of "Of Good Stock." Silverstone appeared in the popular family film "Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul" (2017) and generated buzz with her performance in the art house film "The Killing of a Sacred Deer" (2017). Silverstone and Jarecki divorced in 2018, but her career maintained its momentum with a role alongside Diane Keaton and Jane Fonda in "Book Club" (2018).

QUOTES FROM Alicia Silverstone CHARACTERS

Josh says: Hey James Bond, In America we drive on the right side of the road!

Cher Horowitz says: I am! You try driving in platforms.

Cher Horowitz says: This is California, not Kentucky?

Cher Horowitz says: Dionne and her boyfriend Murray are in this dramatic relationship. I think they've seen that Ike and Tina Turner movie too many times.

Cher Horowitz says: Until mankind is peaceful enough not to have violence on the news, there's no point in taking it out of shows that need it for entertainment value.

Cher Horowitz says: Okay, so you're probably going, "Is this like a Noxzema commercial or what?" But seriously, I actually have a way normal life for a teenage girl.

Cher Horowitz says: Anything you can do to draw attention to your mouth is good.

Cher Horowitz says: Sometimes you have to show a little skin. This reminds boys of being naked, and then they think of sex.

Christian says: Do you like Billie Holiday?

Cher Horowitz says: I love him.

Cher Horowitz says: Would you look at that body language? Legs crossed towards each other. That is an unequivocal sex invite.

Cher Horowitz says: Isn't my house classic? The columns date all the way back to 1972.

Cher Horowitz says: Oh look, Josh is dancing with Tai, he never dances.

Christian says: I can see why.

Cher Horowitz says: Miss Stoeger, I would just like to say that physical education in this school is a disgrace. I mean, standing in line for forty minutes is hardly aerobically effective. I doubt I've worked off the calories in a stick of Carefree gum.

Cher Horowitz says: I have direction...

Josh says: Yeah, towards the mall.

Amber says: Hello? Was I the only one listening? I mean, I thought it reeked.

Cher Horowitz says: I believe that was your designer imposter perfume.

Josh says: Want to practice parking?

Cher Horowitz says: What's the point? Everywhere you go has valet.

Cher Horowitz says: Would you call me selfish?

Dionne says: No, not to your face.

Dionne says: Hello? There was a stop sign.

Cher Horowitz says: I totally paused.

DMV Tester says: How'd you do? Well, let's see shall we? You can't park, you can't switch lanes, you can't make right hand turns, you damaged private property and you almost killed someone. Off hand, I'd say you failed.

Cher Horowitz says: Failed?

DMV Tester says: Watch out for the bike rider!

Cher Horowitz says: Oops, my bad!

Cher Horowitz says: Lucy you know I don't speak Mexican.

Lucy says: I'm not a Mexican!

Cher Horowitz says: He does dress better than I do. What would I bring to the relationship?

Goody says: Staying young is getting old.

Cher Horowitz says: I am totally butt crazy in love with Josh.

Cher Horowitz says: I feel like such a heifer. I had two bowls of Special K, 3 pieces of turkey bacon, a handful of popcorn, 5 peanut butter M&M's and like 3 pieces of licorice.

Cher Horowitz says: Christian said he'd call the next day, but in boy time that meant Thursday.

Josh says: You look like Pippi Longstocking.

Cher Horowitz says: Well you look like Forrest Gump. Who's Pippi Longstocking?

Josh says: Someone Mel Gibson never played.

Batgirl/Barbara Wilson says: Partners? [extends her hand]

Robin/Dick Grayson says: Partners. [places his hand on top]

Batman/Bruce Wayne says: [places his hand on top] Partners.

Alfred Pennyworth says: We are going to need a bigger cave.

Ms. Herman says: Happiness is something that has to be looked after, something you have to be vigilant about.

Cher Horowitz says: No, she's a full-on Monet.

Tai says: What's a Monet?

Cher Horowitz says: It's like a painting, see? From far away, it's okay, but up close it's a big old mess.

Cher Horowitz says: Are we going somewhere to make left turns?

DMV Tester says: We're going back to the DMV.

Cher Horowitz says: Well, did I pass?

DMV Tester says: (Laughs) Did you pass? Let's see here. You can't make right turns, you can't park, you can't change lanes, you destroyed public property, oh yeah and you almost killed someone. Overall I'd say you failed.

DMV Tester says: [laughs] Did you pass? Let's see here. You can't make right turns, you can't park, you can't change lanes, you destroyed public property, oh yeah and you almost killed someone. Overall I'd say you failed.

Mel Hamilton says: (angry) "Do you know what time it is?"

Mel Hamilton says: [angry] Do you know what time it is?

Cher Horowitz says: "A watch doesn't really go with this outfit daddy..."

Cher Horowitz says: A watch doesn't really go with this outfit daddy...

Mel Hamilton says: "I'd like to see you have a little direction"

Mel Hamilton says: I'd like to see you have a little direction.

Cher Horowitz says: "I have direction!"

Cher Horowitz says: I have direction!

Josh says: "yeah, towards the mall"

Josh says: Yeah, towards the mall.

Mel Hamilton says: "What the hell is that?"

Mel Hamilton says: What the hell is that?

Cher Horowitz says: "A dress!"

Cher Horowitz says: A dress!

Mel Hamilton says: "Says who?"
