While ‘Clueless’ chronicled the chic lives of some fashion-obsessed Los Angeles high schoolers, Alicia Silverstone and Stacey Dash are fully aware of what the iconic 1995 film has meant to fans – and watched ‘Clueless’ in a TikTok tribute On Sunday.
Nearly three decades after portraying Cher Horowitz and Dionne Davenport in Amy Heckerling’s cult-classic comedy, Silverstone and Dash reenacted an exchange of lines in which Cher asked, “Would you call me selfish?” – only for Dionne to wittily reply.
“No,” Dash lip-synched in the new video. “Not in the face.”
Dash uploaded the 10-second clip with a nod to the film’s popular “as if” catchphrase as a hashtag. It has been viewed more than 4 million times as of Sunday and ended with the two besties performing an accelerated version of Fat Joe’s “What’s Luv?”
“Now there goes your social life,” Dash says, lip-synching.
Dash also posted a blooper reel on Monday, in which the duo laugh hysterically while trying to show off their dance moves to a cameraman, with a confident caption blazoned on it: “Behind the scenes of a GenX Tik Tok.”
“It was a lot of fun,” says the caption that appears at the end. “Oh how I missed us.”
According to Entertainment Weekly, Heckerling wrote Clueless as a modern interpretation of Jane Austen’s 19th-century novel Emma. She delivered one of the most celebrated high school comedies of all time, and it landed in the pantheon alongside another of her hits, 1982’s Fast Times at Ridgemont High.
Silverstone celebrated the 27th anniversary of “Clueless” in July with a TikTok montage of her character’s most hilarious moments and a caption congratulating Cher on being “a bad bitch.” She previously re-enacted another beloved scene with son Bear in 2021.
“I don’t think I was thinking about anything in the future when I was 18,” Silverstone told Entertainment Tonight in 2020. “I had no idea [the film would be so successful]. I just knew it was an exciting part and that… Heckerling was such a good filmmaker. I was really excited to accept that.”
Brittany Murphy also contributed to the film’s success in her role as Tai, the shy new classmate that Cher and Dionne take under their wing. Silverstone told Vogue in 2020 she pushed Heckerling to cast Murphy, who died of pneumonia and drug poisoning in 2009.
“She was so good,” Silverstone said during a 2019 Clueless reunion in Chicago, according to People. “I love it when she says, ‘You’re a virgin who can’t drive.’ It’s just one of my favorite moments in the whole movie.”
