The film “Clueless” catapulted her into major stardom, but Alicia Silverstone didn’t know the first thing about how to play the part.

As Silverstone explained, “It is hard to be famous when you are young, particularly if you did not have any plans. I wanted to become unfamous as fast as possible.” She added, “I also wish I’d had the strength to say how little I knew about life. ‘Clueless’ gave the impression I knew about fashion and sex — it was ridiculous because I didn’t.”

“I don’t want to come across as a victim,” she clarified. “Fame brings money and I was able to buy a car at 18, a Ford Bronco, and buy a house a year later, which was a huge advantage. I did six movies back to back without a break, which was a stupid thing to do.”

These days, the activist/actress/author prefers spending time with her 17-month-old son Bear Blu. That’s one role she knows she was born to play.
