Alicia Silverstone Showed Up At A Clueless Screening, Obviously Dropped A Whatever,
Watching a movie in the comfort of your own home can be fun, but sometimes seeing one of your favorite flicks in a group environment can make it even more enjoyable. While not nearly as common as typical theatrical showings, sometimes there are opportunities to take in an older movie among fellow fans. For instance, on Sunday, May 28, there was a special Cinespia screening of Clueless at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles, and Cher Horowitz herself, Alicia Silverstone, stopped by to introduce the beloved 1990s coming-of-age comedy. She even dropped her character’s trademark “Whatever!” at the end. What, did you think she wouldn’t take the opportunity to do that? As if!
Before the Clueless screening kicked off, Alicia Silverstone delivered some opening words to all the adoring fans, and as you can see in the video above (from Twitter user laur_eli) when some started yelling out for her to say one of Cher’s catchphrases from the movie, she went with “Whatever” to satisfy the crowd. Silverstone brought her six-year-old son Bear Blu to the event, and Breckin Meyer, who played Travis Birkenstock in Clueless, was also there. Silverstone and Meyer posed together for some pictures at the screening, and if you look at them now compared to in the mid-1990s, it’s clear they’ve aged wonderfully.
A loose adaptation of the Jane Austen novel Emma, Clueless followed Cher Horowitz, a popular and wealthy student in Beverly Hills navigating the ins and outs of 1990s high school life. Along with Breckin Meyer as Travis, the movie’s cast included Stacey Dash as Dionne Davenport, Brittany Murphy as Tai Frasier, Elisa Donovan as Amber Mariens, Paul Rudd as Josh Lucas, Dan Hedaya as Mel Horowitz, Donald Faison as Murray Duvall and Wallace Shawn as Mr. Hall. Clueless was a sleeper hit in 1995, earning mostly positive reviews and collecting over $56 million worldwide off a $12 million budget. A spinoff TV series later aired for three seasons, but only Dash, Donovan, Faison and Shawn reprised their roles. Rachel Blanchard succeeded Silverstone as Cher.
In case you don’t have Clueless readily available to watch, take a look at the trailer from back in the day so you won’t be buggin’.
Following the release of Clueless, Alicia Silverstone has appeared in Batman & Robin, Scorched, Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed, Stormbreaker, Miss Match and Suburgatory, to name a few of her movies and TV shows. She can currently be seen in Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul, and her upcoming projects include Tribes of Pablo Verdes and American Woman.
