Okay. Here are two things we are totally certain about:
1) Claire Danes was the perfect choice for the part of Angela Chase on My So-Called Life!
2) She is TOTES gorgeous in everything that she has ever done!
But back when the teenage angst drama was casting for their lead role, producers had their heart set on someone else for the part!
According to a new profile on Danes in The New Yorker, she almost lost out on her breakout role to a then 16-year-old Silverstone!
Alicia actually auditioned for the part and immediately caught executive producer Ed Zwick's eye. He wanted to give her the gig. But his co-executive producer Marshall Herskovitz reportedly put an end to the idea, saying:
It's that time of year again! Time to pack a bowl of
weed ice cream and fill that bong vase with water! It's 420, y'all!
What better way to celebrate Mary Jane's birthday with some of our favorite pot-smoking movie scenes?? Of course we have Seth Rogen in Knocked Up (above), and pretty much every other movie he's in, but some of these other ones, might surprise you…
Alicia Silverstone just isn't having an luck at the box office. After Butter made less than $80K during its opening weekend, her reunion with Clueless director Amy Heckerling did even WORSE!
Vamps, a romantic comedy starring Silverstone and Krysten Ritter as vampires looking for love in the Big Apple, scored only $500 this weekend.
But considering the movie was already
AHHHH!!! SO DOPE!!!
The reunion had us buggin' in the best way possible!!! But this is TOO MUCH!!
Like, srsly, how can we manage to focus on anything else now that Clueless is becoming A MUSICAL!?!
Director Amy Heckerling recently revealed her brilliant plan, saying:
Alicia Silverstone is just like Cher — and every theater chick ever!
Like her Clueless counterpart, Alicia's first boyfriend was a gay. Of course she was totally clueless (oh, hey) to his taste for sausage.
The now married actress admits:
"I've had so many crushes on gay boys. My first love was so gay, and I didn't know."
Like countless other
theater naive girls, Alicia rejected any thought of her young love being a disco-dancing, Oscar Wilde-reading, Streisand ticket-holding friend of Dorothy, even when her pals try to warn her!
The actress confesses:
And who doesn't?
David Blaine captivated New York audiences all weekend by standing on a platform between two tesla coils pumping his body full of electricity for three days straight!
The amazing act of endurance, titled Electrified: One Million Volts, captured the attention of two notable NYC visitors who go by the name of Woody Harrelson and Alicia Silverstone.
Both actors were spotted at Pier 54 with their significant others by their side and a witness said:
Like, srsly… why can't there be a sequel again??
Clueless was, without a doubt, one of the best movies to ever hit American culture. Saying they defined a generation is basically an understatement.
So we thanked our lucky stars and stripes when we found out a bunch of 'em were getting together for a very special reunion interview!
Ch-ch-check it ouuuttt (above)!!!
They remember Brittany Murphy, reveal where their characters would be today, and reenact their favorite lines!!!
If you miss this, you're totally WHACK!!!
