Alicia Silverstone Covers 'Health' September 2009

Alicia Silverstone Covers 'Health' September 2009

Alicia Silverstone opens up in the September 2009 issue of Health — she apparently gardens naked and spends a lot of time with Woody Harrelson, who isn’t afraid to get naked either. Here’s what the 32-year-old Clueless actress had to say:

On her new book, “The Kind Diet,” which reveals her plant-based diet: “You can hear your needs and desires more clearly. You’re just more juicy—there’s just this lightness that happens. …Once you’re informed, then you can be really gentle and kind to yourself, but giving yourself all the fights life has to offer – like mental clarity and vitality – all while making the planet better”

On gardening naked: “I think it evolved through my new happiness with my body—and also through cool friends. I used to spend a lot of time with Woody Harrelson, and he’s not afraid to get naked.”

On her vegan diet being a lifestyle: “It’s weird to be 32 now and feel and look younger… Right after I first made the switch to a plant-based diet, people were literally telling me, ‘What have you done? You’re sparkling.’”

Alicia next stars in the Broadway play, Time Stands Still, opening January 2010.

    I’ve noticed the exact same thing since switching to a plant-based diet……it really is a remarkable transformation! What I didn’t expect, was the mood elevation – all my worries and cares just melted away, or seemed to. I was much happier. I read that it’s because you are balancing the seratonin levels in your brain by feeding your body the nutrition it needs.

    I’m not sure I would have believed it if I didn’t experience it firsthand…….truly is remarkable though. At 41, I look and feel better than I did at 30.

    my diet used to be micky d’s and bk if i could’nt get bk i would literally get depressed and feel that i was missing out
    i would also eat steak for dinner nightly by total accident i saw a video online and i turned vegan i am noo goody 2 shoes but i am 34 years old i get i.d.’d people laugh when i tell them my age they don’t think i should be 18 even now i’m not saying i’m the most gorgeous or soo pretty blah blah nor is being vegetarian/vegan for every1 but your skin just does not age i don’t know why because my mother and my aunts eat meat daily and they are wrinkled like prunes

  • All Women Stalker

  • bella

    She looks great :)
    @nick: LOL . . .I know.

  • mimi

    Why did she go away? She was so cute and pretty (still is).
    I’m glad to see her back!

  • mare

    She is very unprofessional. She was on the view promoting something and snubbed EH>She does not deserve a cover of anything . She has not done anything in years!

  • Hmm

    I’m over 30 and get carded constantly and people are shocked when I tell them how old I am. They always assume I’m 22/23. And guess what? I LOVE meat. Rare steak, chicken, hamburgers, fast food on occasion, if it’s a common meat product I’m probably ingesting it multiple times a week. I also love seafood and cheese. I also drink alcohol a couple times a week.

    The one vice I don’t have is smoking. I think that’s disgusting. I also don’t tan much anymore, but up until last year I did it quite often.

    I think it’s in the head and the genes. I don’t think being Vegan is a proven way to beat aging or feel better. I think moderation, exercise and proper calorie intake help a lot.

    I was vegetarian for years and got so bored with it and am much happier now and I enjoy my food. I like cooking and having great meals with family and friends.

    But hey, whatever floats your boat.

  • Michelle

    She really does look better as she ages!!! But I can never imagine myself giving up meat, as much as I love animals.

  • noname

    @Hmm: Yeah, I’m 50 now but still look younger. For a lot of years past 21 I was carded. I too am an omnivore but HAVE NEVER SMOKED! And I use sunscreen. Perhaps those plus genes are the “secret.”

  • jane

    Want some real advice? Don’t over-indulge, don’t smoke and stay active. Please don’t buy into the idea that Alicia Silverstone looks that beautiful because she eats leaves. Give me a break. Actresses are pre-conditioned to look good. That’s half of why they became actresses in the first place. The girl has good genes. Her diet has contributed to her nice figure— but diets don’t have to be that extreme to be effective.

  • tom

    @mare: @mare: i can’t agree with you. U must haven’t heard that Alicia sent apologies after that. she was very nervous and she didn’t intend to offend EH

  • suppress your appetite

    She is gorgeous!

  • haters going to hate

    @mare who cares if she snubbed ehb. I would too, what a waste of space.
