It’s been 22 years since Cher and co. made us lust after over the knee socks and coined 'As if' as the ultimate put down…so where is the Clueless cast now?
Hands up who knows ALL the words of the Clueless script – yup, us too. But can you believe it’s been 22 years since it revolutionised our lives? Time flies, hey.
As well as the uh-mazing fashion statements: the socks, the tartan skirt-suit, Dionne’s INCREDIBLE hat collection and that LWD Calvin Klein number that we all wanted, who can forget the incredible put downs it taught us?
As well as the ultimate boy-bashing comeback of, ‘Urgh, as IF’ and the, ‘I mean, come on, it looks like they just fell out of bed and put on some baggy pants and take their greasy hair – ew – and cover it up with a backwards cap and like, we’re expected to swoon? I don’t think so,’ Cher and co. also taught us some incredible bitchy-backhanders, which we’re still using today.
Tai [Looking at Amber]: ‘Do you think she’s pretty?’
Cher: ‘No, she’s a full-on Monet.’
Tai: ‘What’s a monet?’
Cher: ‘It’s like a painting, see? From far away, it’s OK, but up close, it’s a big old mess.’
And let’s not forget the ultimate: ‘You’re a virgin, who can’t drive!’ Even from where we were sitting, that was way-harsh, Tai.
So, what is the Clueless crew doing now? We’re hoping Miss Geist and Mr Hall are still playing Suck and Blow.
Following the 1995 film, Alicia Silverstone, who played Cher, went on to play Batgirl.
Her side-kick, Dee, played by Stacey Dash, has gone on to star in numerous American TV shows including The Game and Single Ladies.
Dee’s boyfriend, Murray, played by Donald Faison has also had TV success with the brilliant Scrubs. But it’s Paul Rudd, and those dreamy puppy-dog eyes, who has made the big bucks. His estimate wealth is £15million and with comically brilliant films like Knocked Up, I Love You Man and Anchorman under his belt we’d be lying if we said our crush on him hasn’t got bigger over this past 20 years.
Sadly, even though Brittany Murphy, who played Tai, went on to have film success following her debut in Clueless, she’s the one member of the cast who’s no longer with us.
Brittany died in 2009 at the age of 32. Her death, which was concluded to be accidental, was attributed to multiple drug intoxication, pneumonia and ‘iron deficiency anemia’.
RIP Brittany, thanks for bringing us Tai. She changed our lives forever!
