If you had to pick one iconic teen movie from the 90s, chances are you’d probably go for Clueless. The lovable cast which was both relatable & not relatable and the quirky and materialistic but good-hearted Cher who tried to set her friends up with each other, but missed the mark completely.
There’s been nearly a quarter of a decade since it came out stealing our hearts, and even those of us who weren’t even born when the movie was released have seen it and loved it. And just recently, at the 2019 Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo, the cast of Clueless blessed us with a reunion!
Not only that, but they also shared pictures on Instagram! (Which makes me think, Cher would probably have been killing her Instagram game if the movie was set in 2019!)
A picture shared by Donald Faison showed him posing alongside Alicia Silverstone, Paul Rudd, and Breckin Meyer at the fan convention. “Rollin’ with the homies…,” the 44-year-old Scrubs star captioned the post.
Breckin Meyer also posted the same selfie, writing, “We. Have. No. Clue.”
The fans naturally loved the reunion, with one saying “all my dreams came true,” while another added that “Everyone looks amazing.” But if there was one thing everyone was thinking is that the years have really been good on them, especially Donald Faison and Paul Rudd.
Why do you and Paul Rudd look the same age that you were in that movie?” one person asked.
The cast all sat at the C2E2 panel, and they talked about what filming the movie was like, among other things. Silverstone, who brought the iconic character of Cher to life, was only 17 when she starred in the movie. She said that playing that character was both fun and exhausting because she had just finished filming eight movies at the time. She also recalled not being completely able to connect with the character since Cher’s fashionable, socialite personality clashed with hers, as a person who constantly wore “the same green T-shirt and jeans”. (Cher apparently went through 64 costume changes in the movie!)
“I loved playing Cher,” she said. “It was such a fun character and working with these guys — every one of them was so much fun…I didn’t know who that girl was, so it was really fun to be her. Because it wasn’t how I lived my life.”
As a final note, did you know Clueless was actually based off of Jane Austen’s “Emma.”
