Alicia Silverstone was born in San Francisco on October 4, 1976. She began her career at the very young age of six. It was when her father took her pictures that ultimately led to her landing multiple television ads. Alicia transitioned to filmmaking after appearing as a guest on The Wonder Years (1988) as a “dream girl.” She got her first role in 19993 in the movie The Crush, which critics didn’t take well, but it wowed its intended target – teenagers. The role even won Alicia the 1994 MTV Movie Award for “Best Villain.”

However, her breakthrough appearance was when she got a role in the movie Clueless (1995). Alicia was acclaimed as the “lady of the hour” and identified as the new generation’s voice. Silverstone has explored several genres and various roles over the years. Although she didn’t appear as a leading lady in many movies, Alicia gave us an unending number of classics to watch.
