Hailed as the teen queen of the mid-'90s, Alicia Silverstone rapidly ascended the summit of idolism with the help of an infamous Aerosmith video and starring roles in the cult trash favorite The Crush, and Amy Heckerling's sleeper hit Clueless. Despite such a promising beginning to her career, however, the vivacious, green-eyed blonde subsequently weathered a series of professional set-backs, due to poor film choices, weight issues, and an industry increasingly congested with such similarly ebullient young starlets as Sarah Michelle Gellar and Jennifer Love Hewitt. By the end of the decade, Silverstone's future looked uncertain, although many observers noted that her youth and talent made her chances for a comeback entirely plausible.Born to English parents in San Francisco on October 4, 1976, Silverstone is the daughter of a real-estate agent and an airline stewardess. She began working as a child model at the age of six after her father sent several pictures of her in a bathing suit to a few agencies. Modeling work led to TV commercials, which in turn led to work on a number of TV series including an episode of The Wonder Years which cast her as Fred Savage's literal dream girl. At the age of 15, Silverstone landed her first starring role in The Crush (1993), a Fatal Attraction for the Noxema set in which she portrayed a young woman obsessed with an older man (Cary Elwes). Although the film was trashed by critics, it was a hit among its teenage target audience, and Silverstone -- who had become legally emancipated from her parents while making the film in order to work longer hours -- was feted at the 1994 MTV Movie Awards with trophies for Best Villain and Breakthrough Performance. Around the same time, she starred in the popular music video for Aerosmith's "Crazy." Her onscreen antics with Liv Tyler, daughter of Aerosmith frontman Steven, coupled with her vampish turn in The Crush virtually ensured Silverstone's status as Hollywood's latest embodiment of nubile, underage female sexuality.Silverstone's real break came with her starring role as the spoiled, meddlesome, but ultimately endearing Cher Horowitz in Amy Heckerling's Clueless (1995). A very loose and modern adaptation of Jane Austen's Emma, the film was a huge sleeper hit, and Silverstone was roundly praised for her effervescent performance. In the wake of the film's success, the actress signed a ten-million-dollar deal with Columbia that included a three-year first-look deal for her own company, First Kiss Productions. She also won the coveted role of Batgirl in Batman & Robin, something that allowed her to contemplate breaking out of the teen sexpot mode.Unfortunately, the actress was subsequently besieged with a number of problems, ranging from unending industry criticism of her weight to her first excursion as a producer, Excess Baggage (1997). The film, which also served as a starring vehicle for Silverstone, was a thoroughly misguided kidnapping comedy that failed to win favor with either audiences or critics. To add insult to injury, Silverstone's other major 1997 project, the long-awaited Batman & Robin, was one of the year's most expensive critical and commercial flops.After a nearly two-year absence from the screen, Silverstone resurfaced in 1999 with Blast from the Past. A likable romantic comedy that cast her as a cynical Valley girl opposite Brendan Fraser, the film enjoyed modest success. Silverstone followed it with a starring role as the French princess in Kenneth Branagh's much-anticipated musical adaptation of Shakespeare's Love's Labour's Lost (2000), which saw the actress interpreting the Bard and Irving Berlin alongside the likes of Branagh, Nathan Lane, Matthew Lillard, and Alessandro Nivola.In 2001, Silverstone played an American rocker in England for the straight-to-video Rock My World (aka Global Heresay), which, despite providing little more than a blip on her resumé, gave her the opportunity to work with the iconic Peter O'Toole.

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.

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"
