Alicia Silverstone Biography And Filmography:

Alicia Silverstone first gained attention in the popular Aerosmith videos ("Cryin'", "Amazing" and "Crazy"), and the movie "The Crush" (1993) about a member of the press who becomes the unwanted center of attention for a 14-year-old girl who sabotages his life after he refuses her sexual advances. Although the film did not do well commercially, she won two MTV Movie awards for - Best Villain and Best Breakthrough Performance. 

Silverstone went on to play Jeff Goldblum's dangerous daughter in "Hideaway" (1995), about a man who was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital, but two hours later doctors brought him back to life. Alicia also got good reviews on television in "The Cool and the Crazy" (1994), a Ralph Bakshi movie of Showtime's gritty "Rebel Highway" series, playing a troubled young teen bride. Silverstone then returned to the big screen for "Clueless" (1995), a smash hit best described as a "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" meets Jane Austen's "Emma". Silverstone displayed a talent for comedy as a rich young teen who comes to question her moral values, a role which fit her like a glove. 

Her performance led to a signed acting contract worth $10 million to produce and star in two movies for Columbia Pictures. In addition, the savvy young teenager got a four-year "first-look" production agreement with the studio for her production company, First Kiss Productions.


Silverstone's next two projects were "Batman & Robin" starring Uma Thurman and George Clooney, and "Excess Baggage" (1997) about a girl who has always been the rich brat and tries to pull every imaginable stunt to get attention. After gaining weight during the two years between projects, the media begin noticing her new weight gain calling her films the "Fatgirl" and "Excess Baggage". But what was hard for Alicia was the poor results at the box office of both films. She had nothing to do with the "Batman" failure except for simply being in the disaster, but "Excess Baggage", the first product of her new production company, was a bad product with eight screenwriters and a bad script that suffered from too much control and not enough control by the young producer. 

Her next movie was "Blast From the Past" (1999) starring opposite Brendan Fraser, a romantic comedy about a naive man who comes out into the world after being in a fallout shelter for 40 years. Silverstone did much better in her next role in "Love's Labour's Lost" (2000), a musical story and romantic comedy, that showed viewers she could sing as well as act.

A vegetarian with strong social and political views on animals rights, Silverstone soon started spending much of her time promoting animal friendly causes, including lending her voice to 13-year-old Sharon Spitz, the lead character of the socially conscious television series "Braceface" (2001-2003) with Michael Cera, which she also executive produced.

On the big screen, her 2002 robbery comedy "Scorched", and rock music spoof "Global Heresy" failed to make an impact, but that same year she received many good comments for her role on Broadway as Elaine Robinson in the stage production of the 1967 film "The Graduate," opposite Jason Biggs and Kathleen Turner. 

By now Silverstone was ready for a major breakthrough role, but this time it would be on television. She teamed with producer Darren Star ("Melrose Place" and "Sex in the City") in a trademark recipe that Star was so successful with when he teamed with Sarah Jessica Parker.  He took the enthusiastic Silverstone and made her into a television dream girl in "Miss Match" (2003- ), a cheery, romantic series in which she starred as Kate Fox, a divorce lawyer by day and professional matchmaker by night. 


Silverstone was then hired and cast as  a sexy investigative reporter harassing Scooby, Shaggy and the gang in the sequel "Scooby Doo 2: Monster Unleashed" (2004), with Seth Green, and had an outstanding and funny dance scene in the "Beauty Shop" (2005), about a hairstylist who opens up a beauty shop full of employees and customers more interested in speaking their minds than getting a cut. 

Back to movies, Silverstone was next cast in the thriller "Silence Becomes You" (2005), the tale of two sisters, bound by more than blood, who bring home a man on a dare, only to see the situation spiral out of control. The actress then appeared in the family drama "Stormbreaker" (2006), about Alex Rider, who thinks he is a normal school boy, until his uncle is killed. He discovers that he was actually a spy on a mission, when he was killed. Alicia then starred in the made-for-television family movie "Candles on Bay Street" (2006) about a single mom who returns to her hometown after a lengthy absence, posing a potential threat to the marriage of her old high school flame and his wife.

Alicia Silverstone then returned to series TV with a number of roles in shows including The Singles Table (2007), Bad Mother's Handbook (2008), Childrens Hospital (2011), and four episodes in the comedy series Suburgatory (2011).

But Silverstone did find time to crank out o couple of movies during this time including the role of Ms/ Herman in the comedy “The Art of Getting By” (2011) starring Emma Roberts – the story of a lonely and fatalistic teen who has made it all the way to his senior year without ever having done a real day of work and is befriended by a popular but complicated girl who recognizes in him a kindred spirit.

Also that year the actress took the role of Julie Emmet in the comedy “Butter” (2011) about a small-town Iowa where an adopted girl discovers her talent for butter carving and finds herself pitted against an ambitious local woman in their town's annual contest. Alicia then took the leading role of Goody in the comedy “Vamps” (2012) about two female vampires in modern-day New York City who are faced with daunting romantic possibilities.

Another comedy followed with a supporting role in the comedy “Ass Backwards” (2012) where two best friends embark on a cross country trip back to their hometown to attempt to win a pageant that eluded them as children.

Alicia Silverstone wrapped her year in the role of Kate in the comedy “Gods Behaving Badly” (2012) starring Christopher Walken as Zeus and Sharon Stone as Aphrodite in a story of Greek gods living in modern-day New York who intervene in the lives of a young couple.
