Alicia Silverstone Remembers 'Adorable' Brittany Murphy on 'Clueless' 25th Anniversary

Alicia Silverstone is looking back on Clueless 25 years later.

The 43-year-old actress, who played Cher Horowitz in the film, talked about the movie with Vogue in honor of the film’s 25th-annviersary.

During the chat, Alicia recalled her time on set of the 1995 film with co-star Brittany Murphy, who suddenly died on December 20, 2009 when she was only 32.

Alicia recalled the audition process, saying she thought Brittany was “so great” for the role on Tai Frasier.

“I just remember thinking she was so great for the part,” Alicia said. “I can’t remember how many girls came in to audition for Tai that day and I don’t know if I saw a few girls for it or just her, but I remember Brittany being really adorable.”

“She’s so good at the little accent because she had one already, but I think she just pushed it to new heights,” Alicia continued. “I found her so wonderful and I said to [director] Amy [Heckerling] right away ‘I think she’s the one! She was the best one you guys!’ hoping they would agree. She was like ‘Uh yeah duh. Of course she was the best, she’s the one.’”

Alicia also talked about how she and Brittany where the only two actual teenagers at the time of filming Clueless.

“I remember her mom was on set a lot. I brought my mom around a little bit and we would all spend time together. But I don’t think we had any intellectual idea about us being up-and-comers in a big movie because we didn’t know we were in a big movie,” Alicia said. “Maybe other people knew, but I was so innocent and never really paying attention to career stuff at all. I was just doing another job. It was a really great acting part that was different becauseā€¦ Well, first of all I didn’t know I was funny.”

During an interview back in April, Alicia revealed what her favorite line from Clueless is!

Clueless is available for streaming on Netflix now.
