Alicia Silverstone’s Biggest Clueless Regret
Laura Lee - January 27, 2018


By Shel Silverstein

My dad gave me one dollar bill
'Cause I'm his smartest son,
And I swapped it for two shiny quarters
'Cause two is more than one!

And then I took the quarters
And traded them to Lou
For three dimes -- I guess he didn't know
That three is more than two!

Just then, along came old blind Bates
And just 'cause he can't see
He gave me four nickels for my three dimes,
And four is more than three!

And then I took the nickels to Hiram Coombs
Down at the seed-feed store,
And the fool gave me five pennies for them,
And five is more than four!

And then I went and showed my dad,
And he got red in the cheeks
And closed his eyes and shook his head --
Too proud of me to speak!

The iconic ’90s film Clueless is turning 22 this year.  Alicia Silverstone, the star of the movie admits that she’s got one shocking regret about her Clueless wardrobe.  Silverstone played the role of Cher Horowitz, the girl with the wardrobe we all wished we had.  From the Mary Janes to the yellow plaid two piece, ’90s fashionistas had pined her clothes across the globe. The movie also inspired phrases such as as if and whatever into the vocabulary of many teenagers after it’s release.

Silverstone, who is now 40 years old was given Cher’s wardrobe after filming the movie, and unfortunately threw it all out.  She explains that at the very time, she was not into fashion at all and wore a green t-shirt and jeans every day.   Alicia was a tomboy and just wasn’t into it. She found the costume fitting to be a long and annoying process.  Only after the filming did she understand the importance of the outfits.

She simply did not know what to do with the clothes she was given.  While many of us certaintly also have regrets about the clothing from our childhood that we didn’t keep, this situation is a real bummer.  At least she still took on the role of Cher, because we really couldn’t imagine anyone else doing it better.
