Alicia Silverstone then
Alicia Silverstone will always be remembered as Cher Horowitz, the entitled, shallow teenager from Clueless. That’s probably because she portrayed the part perfectly. Silverstone was born and raised in California, and at the age of six, she embarked on a modeling career, which later turned into an acting career. Throughout her childhood, she appeared mostly on TV commercials.
In 1994, Silverstone won the MTV Movie Awards in the category of Best Breakthrough Performance for her debut role in The Crush (1993). In 1995, she was cast for the leading role in the teen comedy film Clueless. The film became a critical hit and remained so for years, making Silverstone a prominent name in the industry and a national darling.
