Can you believe it's been 25 years since we were introduced to Cher Horowitz? As if!
No, really, Clueless first hit the big screen on July 19, 1995, and Amy Heckerling's Emma adaptation quickly became a high school movie classic. Alicia Silverstone made us all wish we lived in Beverly Hills and wore Alaia, and we tried more times than we're proud of to roll with our homies.
“I don't think I was thinking about anything in the future when I was 18-years-old,” Silverstone told ET in April 2020, when asked if she anticipated Clueless' phenomenal success. “I had no idea. I just knew it was an exciting part and that [director] Amy Heckerling was such a good filmmaker. I was really excited to take that on.”
We're excited to see if our VHS players still work to rewatch this beloved flick. While we attempt to do that, why don't you take a look at the cast then and now.
Alicia Silverstone: Then
Silverstone catapulted to fame when she portrayed uber popular Cher Horowitz. The San Francisco-born actress was 18 when she played the queen of Bronson Alcott High. Before her Clueless breakout, she had her first credit on The Wonder Years and worked on a few TV movies, but she was best known for starring in a trio of Aerosmith videos for the rock band's songs "Amazing," "Cryin'" and "Crazy."
Alicia Silverstone: Now
Now 43, Silverstone continued to have a successful career after Clueless. The rest of the '90s included big-screen roles in Batman & Robin (1997) and Blast From the Past (1999). In the next decade, she voiced Sharon Spitz on Braceface and had the starring role in the short-lived series Miss Match, and she had a short arc a few years later on Suburgatory, which starred her Clueless co-star, Jeremy Sisto. Most recently, she starred on American Woman and currently is starring on the Netflix reboot of The Baby-Sitters Club. Her latest film, Bad Therapy, was released in April 2020. Off screen, the staunch vegan wrote a nutrition book, The Kind Diet, in 2009 and regularly speaks up about animal activism. Silverstone wed musician Christopher Jarecki in June 2005 but filed for divorce from him in May 2018. They share one son, Bear Blu, born in 2011.
Stacey Dash: Then
Dash was actually in her late 20s when she portrayed fashionable 17-year-old Dionne Davenport, Cher's BFF and the girlfriend of clueless Murray Duvall. She reprised the role for the TV adaptation of the film, which lasted from 1996-1999. She followed her Clueless role up with a part on The Strip, which only lasted one season.
Stacey Dash: Now
The New York native continued to act, scoring mostly guest spots through the aughts, as well as a part in Kanye West's "All Falls Down" music video, before scoring roles on The Game and Single Ladies. Her most recent project was the spring 2020 show Finding Love in Quarantine, but she became better known for posing nude in Playboy in August 2006 and becoming a conservative Fox contributor who briefly ran for a Southern California congressional seat in 2018. Her personal life has also been full of ups and downs. She shares a son, Austin, with ex-boyfriend Christopher Williams and a daughter, Lola, with ex-husband Brian Lovell. The Sharknado 4: The 4th Awakens star split from her second husband, Emmanuel Xuereb, after two years of marriage in 2010, and from her third husband, Jeffrey Marty, in April 2020, also two years after the nuptials. Dash and Marty only knew each other for 10 days before getting hitched.
Paul Rudd: Then
Before the University of Kansas grad won over hearts as Cher Horowitz's ex-stepbrother and eventually love interest, Josh Lucas, he starred on the '90s shows Wild Oats and Sisters. Big-screen roles kept coming Rudd's way in his post-Clueless world, including parts in Romeo + Juliet (1996), The Object of My Affection (1998), The Cider House Rules (1999) and Wet Hot American Summer (2001).
Paul Rudd: Now
Now the most famous of the very successful Clueless cast, Rudd has starred in tons of beloved comedies, including Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy (2004) and its 2013 sequel, The 40-Year-Old Virgin (2005), Knocked Up (2007), Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008) and I Love You, Man (2009), and had a multi-season guest spot on Parks and Recreation. He even slipped into tights to take on a superhero role in the Avengers films as Ant-Man and flexed his drama chops in films like The Perks of Being a Wallflower (2012) and The Fundamentals of Caring (2016), as well as his most recent TV role as the leading man on Netflix's Living With Yourself. He's also been on Broadway, making his Great White Way debut in 2007. In 2003, Rudd wed wife Julie Yeager, and the pair have two children, son Jack and daughter Darby.
Brittany Snow: Then
The New Jersey native won over fans as Tai Frasier, the rebellious East Coast transfer student with a heart of gold, whom Cher tried her hardest to make over. Murphy had a few acting credits to her name before starring in Clueless, starring on shows like Drexell's Class and Almost Home, as well as nabbing guest roles on Blossom, Frasier, Party of Five and Boy Meets World.
Brittany Murphy: Now
The actress went on to receive rave reviews for her roles in Girl, Interrupted (1999), Riding in Cars With Boys (2001), 8 Mile (2002) and Sin City (2005), and she continued to display her comedy chops in movies like Uptown Girls (2003) and as a voice actress on King of the Hill. Her love life was a bit more of a roller coaster, however. She dated Ashton Kutcher, her co-star in 2003's Just Married, and was later briefly engaged to manager Jeff Kwatinetz and production assistant Joe Macaluso. The Uptown Girls star would eventually marry Simon Monjack, a writer and producer, in 2007. Murphy tragically died at age 32 in December 2009. Her death was ruled accidental, with the Los Angeles County coroner saying at the time that it was caused by a combination of pneumonia, an iron deficiency and intoxication of multiple drugs. Monjack died just five months later.
Donald Faison: Then
It was tough not to love Faison as immature Murray, especially when he shaved his head at a party and attempted to teach his girlfriend, Dionne, how to drive. He continued to play the character on the TV version of Clueless, which aired from 1996-1998. One of his earliest credits was even more adorable: Sesame Street.
Donald Faison: Now
The New Yorker had a memorable role in 2000's Remember the Titans, reunited with Clueless co-star Brittany Murphy in 2003's Uptown Girls and starred on the second season of Felicity, but he's best known for portraying Dr. Christopher Turk on the long-running NBC sitcom Scrubs. In recent years, he's continued to find steady work on the small screen, appearing on Ray Donovan, Timeline and Emergence, as well as voicing several characters on Robot Chicken. He has three children -- son Kobe and twins Dade and Kaya -- with ex-wife Lisa Askey, who died in 2017, and shares two children -- son Rocco and daughter Wilder -- with wife CaCee Cobb, whom he married in 2012. He also has a grown son, Sean Faison-Ince, from a previous relationship with Audrey Ince.
Elisa Donovan: Then
Rich, spoiled brat got a whole new meaning with Donovan's Clueless character, Amber Mariens. The redheaded actress continued to play Amber on the Clueless TV show. The 1995 flick was her first major acting role, having appeared on just two episodes of Blossom prior to the film's debut.
Elisa Donovan: Now
After Clueless ended, Donovan moved on to Sabrina the Teenage Witch, playing Sabrina's mortal Adams College roommate, Morgan Cavanaugh. The New York-born actress continued to earn a slew of TV roles, including guest spots on NCIS, Sonny With a Chance, Judging Amy and Melissa & Joey (the latter reuniting her with Sabrina co-star Melissa Joan Hart) and bigger parts on The Lake and In Gayle We Trust. She's also become a familiar face in Hallmark Channel Christmas movies. Her last credited role was in 2017's MDMA. In May 2012, she welcomed daughter Scarlett with boyfriend Charlie Bigelow, whom she married five months later in Carmel, California.
Breckin Meyer: Then
Meyer played lovable burnout Travis Birkenstock -- yes, like the shoe -- the skater who ultimately became Tai's love interest in Clueless. The former Beverly Hills High student -- who was reportedly Drew Barrymore's first kiss! -- was already used to set life before taking on the role of Travis, having starred on the Jackie Thomas Show in the early '90s, earning guest spots on The Wonder Years and L.A. Law and appearing in the movies Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare and Payback.
Breckin Meyer: Now
The Minnesota-born actor had major success both in the late '90s and aughts in films like The Craft (1996), Go (1999), Kate & Leopold (2001) and Herbie: Fully Loaded (2005). He's taken on voice roles for animated series like Robot Chicken (he's also a writer for the show, which was co-created by one of his close friends, Seth Green) and King of the Hill. He also starred alongside Mark-Paul Gosselaar on Franklin & Bash and most recently appeared on Designated Survivor and The Fix. He shares a daughter, Caitlin Willow, with director Deborah Kaplan, whom he was married to for 11 years. Kaplan directed Can't Hardly Wait (1998) and Josie and the Pussycats (2001), both of which Meyer had uncredited parts in.
Jeremy Sisto: Then
The California-born actor portrayed narcissistic Elton, the rich high school student Cher attempted to set Tai up with. Clueless was Sisto's breakout role, and he's had tons of success since its 1995 debut.
Jeremy Sisto: Now
After Clueless, Sisto appeared in films like Suicide Kings (1997), Thirteen (2003) and Waitress (2007) and the TV mini-series The '60s (1999) and Caesar (2004), but it was on TV in the '00s through today where he has found the bulk of his steady, more familiar work. He has starred on quite a few shows, including Six Feet Under, Kidnapped, Law & Order, Suburgatory, Ice and FBI. As for his personal life, he was married to actress Marisa Ryan from 1993-2002 and wed Addie Lane in 2009, four months after they welcomed a daughter, Charlie Ballerina. They welcomed son Bastian Kick in 2012.
Justin Walker: Then
Walker played suave Christian Stovitz, who stole Cher's heart before revealing to her that he was gay. Clueless was his first acting credit.
Justin Walker: Now
Walker has left the Hollywood limelight. He appeared in movies like 1996's Last Resort, 1999's Glacier Falls and 2000's Teen Monster, and his last film credit was a 2005 film called Take Out, though he did appear in a short in 2010. Walker reportedly owned a now-closed restaurant in Rancho Mirage, California, and is now a partner in the fantasy sports wagering site Draftster.com, according to LinkedIn.
