Alicia Silverstone was the breakout star of 1995's 'Clueless,' a modern adaptation of the famed Jane Austen novel 'Emma,' originally written in 1815. Silverstone portrayed the film's unlikely heroine Cher Horowitz, a fashionable Los Angeles teenager with good, but often clueless, intentions.
Known for classic one-liners such as 'As if!' and 'I'm totally buggin',' Cher attempts to prove to everyone -- her father, her ex step-brother Josh and a cute new boy named Christian -- that she is more than just a ditzy blonde with a penchant for fashion. She brings it upon herself to do more good deeds for others, while still benefitting herself as one of the most popular girls in school.
Silverstone went on to star in films such as 'Batman and Robin,' 'Beauty Shop' and 2013 'Ass Backwards.' The actress, who is also a known animal and environmental rights activist, married musician Christopher Jarecki in 2005. The couple welcomed a son, Bear Blu Jarecki, in May 2011.
