Alicia Silverstone Makes Viral Debut On TikTok By Recreating An Iconic Scene From 'Clueless'

Paramount Pictures, @aliciasilverstone/TikTok

Alicia Silverstone made her viral TikTok debut by recreating the famous "as if" scene from her iconic 1995 coming-of-age comedy Clueless.

She included her 10-year-old son, Bear Blu Jarecki, who she co-parents with her ex-husband, musician Christopher Jarecki.

In the clip, Silverstone is seen sporting the yellow checkered blazer her character Cher Horowitz wore in the film. She struts towards the camera to the tune of No Doubt's "I'm Just a Girl."

Her son runs into the frame and puts his arm on her, but this is no tender mommy moment.

She is Cher, the vain and wealthy popular girl from Beverly Hills. And just like her superficial character, she immediately shoves him away from her and lip-syncs to her own voice.

Say it with me:

"Ew Get off of me! Ugh, as if!"

You can watch the clip, here:

Ugh! As if... I wouldn't join TikTok. 😉💛😘 #Clueless #AsIf

She then grabbed and hugged her boy for a job well done on his portrayal of "random guy" at the end of the clip.

Silverstone's TikTok moment—which she captioned with, "Ugh! As if... I wouldn't join TikTok"—went viral with 6.6 million likes and over 134.6K shares after it was posted on Saturday.

Social media users were elated over seeing her on the app with many expressing their enthusiasm in all caps.

Others commented on how the 44-year-old actress hasn't aged a day.

She was 18 when she played Cher.

Clueless was written and directed by Amy Heckerling and was loosely based on Jane Austen's 1815 novel Emma with a modern-day twist.

Last year the film, which is still quoted by many fans today, celebrated its 25th anniversary.

Silverstone told Vogue in a retrospective interview commemorating the silver anniversary she initially thought her character was "materialistic and unappealing. And really annoying, to be honest."

But she later said she realized she was judging Cher, adding:

"Once I started working on her I found all the heart and all the love."
"She loves her daddy so much! And she's trying to be a supportive friend, so I just sorta put all of my love and heart into this character with these other aspects that were cringeworthy."

No wonder we all fell in love with her.
