So here’s the thing about Alicia Silverstone. Everything she does is so … Alicia. Catch our drift? Like, naming her son Bear Blue, and then feeding him by spitting in his mouth. It’s done with some much conviction and she truly believes she’s livin’ her vegan, nature-lovin’ life the best she can. So when we hear that Alicia is now endorsing vibrators, we were wondering how this would fit in her grand hippie-ish scheme of things? Yes, you heard right. We did say that Alicia was endorsing vibrators. And get the name — Leaf Vibes. It’s totally Alicia’s eco-conscious steez! The actress has been shilling the toys online and her personal message on the website — which comes with an “educational video“, not featuring her sadly — makes us want to walk down the street hugging people and throwing out peace signs simultaneously. “Ok, ladies — sometimes it’s nice to have a little extra … something … when you’re getting it on (solo, with your partner…whatever floats your boat). There is one personal massager company that’s actually kinder than all the rest,” she writes. Because what we want from our sex toys primarily, is for them to be kind and compassionate. Apart from telling us that they’re, “phalate-free, super-soft (and safe) silicone, and they use rechargeable batteries” and that the packaging is also made from recycled materials, Alicia likes that they, “come in a bunch of different shapes, all inspired by nature. I like that they look natural and feminine … like leaves and flowers … not scary.” Flower-power vibrators? Is the era of free love upon us again? Alicia nails it in the end with one of the best closing statement ever: “It’s nice to know that you can get your green on and your groove on at the same time!” If that doesn’t make the vibrators sell out, we don’t know what will. Goodbye, Rabbit (c’mon, you know you remember it from Sex and the City.) You had your time in the sun!
For most of us, Alicia Silverstone defined 90s style. Or rather, her fabulous character Cher from the classic Clueless did! The plaid skirts, the berets, those sunglasses…everything about it makes us want to throw on some acid washed jeans, pound a Surge, jump into our Volkswagon New Beetle and blare “Steal My Sunshine” as loud as we can. People did that stuff, right? Was that just us? That’s what was so great about the 90s: It was a lawless time when you could totally do your own thing, like wearing white bell bottoms and a cowboy hat, a leather jump suit, or a leopard print see-through blouse. It didn’t matter!
And trust us, Alicia did all of those things. We’ve got the proof in the gallery below! The lovely Ms. Silverstone turns 36 today, and spends much of her time with her boy Bear Blu, and feeding him like a momma bird by spitting chewed food into his mouth. There’s a sentence we never thought we’d write! But she’s never far from her movie past. She has a recurring role on Suburgatory as the love interest of her former Clueless costar Jeremy Sisto! The universe wants them together, you guys!
In honor of Alicia’s big day, we’ve assembled her 20 most awesomely crazy looks from that fashion free-for-all that we call the 90s. Enjoy!
It would be easy to compare Vamps to Clueless, if only for the fact that Vamps made possible the reunion of Clueless director Amy Hecklering with her star Alicia Silverstone. While that pairing alone makes the movie exquisitely squee-worthy, there are so many obvious Clueless elements at play in the new film, the Vamps trailer is satisfying a Clueless desire we didn’t even know we had. Not unlike the deep, uncontrollable desire for blood! Okay, so the vampire plotline might make it seem like Vamps falls outside your average “amazing girl comedy” genre. But let’s take a closer look, shall we? Much like Clueless, Vamps provides…
Some celebrities, like Dita von Teese and Busy Philipps, showed up on both Saturday and Sunday. Dita was also spotted hanging out with pal Kelly Osbourne, and her purple hair. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was seen rocking out to Florence Welch. Twilighters Elizabeth Reaser and Nikki Reed (with hubby Paul McDonald) were there, as well as ex-Twilighter Rachelle Lefevre. Joe Jonas hatted up, while Joe Manganiello (and yay for this) took his shirt off. But the cutest photographs by far, were of Alicia Silverstone with her son Bear Blu. Top marks for the baby-size noise-cancelling headphones! Look out for all of the action in our gallery.
So. There we were, eating lunch at our desk and minding our own business, when we came across this video of Alicia Silverstone feeding her child by spitting chewed up food into his mouth. And suddenly we weren’t so hungry anymore The actress posted a clip to her blog depicting herself feeding her 10 month-old son Bear Blu like a momma bird. “It’s his favorite…and mine” she says of the unusual eating method. “He literally crawls across the room to attack my mouth if I’m eating.” We can’t even begin to imagine what Cher Horowitz would say! Alicia is reportedly a strict vegan, and is raising her boy in the same fashion. Does that have something to do with all this? We have no idea, and we’re probably going to keep wondering for quite some time!
It was announced back in December that Alicia Silverstone would be guest-starring on Suburgatory for four episodes this spring, playing a love interest for George, played by none other than her Clueless co-star Jeremy Sisto. For some reason, people just started getting excited about the reunion of Cher and Elton this week. We’re guessing that like us, people are just catching up on the excellent ABC comedy that comes close to rivaling Awkward. as one of our fave teen shows on the air right now (don’t worry, Vampire Diaries, you are a category of your own). Anyway, in the interest of fantasy casting on a quiet, pre-Oscar Friday, we decided to dream up ways to bring other alums from the 1995 classic to Chatswin. (We assume Brittany Murphy would hover over all proceedings as a well-meaning suburban angel. RIP with the homies, Tai.)
We’ve harbored lusty feelings for Paul Rudd ever since he wooed us as nerdy, moody, Rock the Vote-y Josh in Clueless, AKA the best thing birthed by the 90s besides the original Real World cast. Rudd met up with his Clueless co-star, Alicia Silverstone, at the NYC Our Idiot Brother premiere last night and damn, have they aged well. Or rather, not at all. Look at these two! Just stunning, we say, and yes — still cute. Is it possible Paul’s a vegan too and vegetable juice is a magical elixir?
From a virgin who can’t drive to a mom who almost certainly can (we don’t know her life) Alicia Silverstone’s baby boy Bear Blu Jarecki marks the Vamps actress’s entrance into motherhood, as well as the Wacky Celebrity Baby Name Society Of North America. “Mom and Dad are completely in love,” Silverstone’s rep told People of Alicia’s baby with husband Christopher Jarecki, adding that Bear is a “beautiful baby boy.” During Silverstone’s pregnancy, the actress promoted her new vegan cookbook The Kind Diet, and writes on the book’s website, “We are all three in love! I’m so grateful to this community for all the love, support, good wishes and happy vibes you’ve sent me during my pregnancy…it has been wonderful.” She didn’t say she was butt-crazy in love, but you know she was thinking it.
We’re hopping the Clueless star is right now filling her closet with maternity clothes, setting her tiny early ’90s computer to “Match” and letting those racks spin, because Alicia Silverstone is pregnant! “I’ve been wanting to have a baby since I was 2 years old – I’m destined to be a mother,” Silverstone told People earlier this year. Her rep now confirms that baby Silverstone, Alicia’s first with musician husband Christopher Jarecki, is on the way. We are totally butt crazy in love with this news!
In addition to popping out the most adorable little Betty and/or Baldwin imaginable, Silverstone has her plate full in the new year with Ecotools, her line of green cosmetic brushes and Vamps, a supernatural romantic comedy with Krysten Ritter, Signourney Weaver and Clueless director Amy Heckerling. We are definitely looking forward to seeing more of Silverstone in 2011. We’re just glad it won’t be sporadically.
