Alicia Silverstone Notes2

What Alicia Has Said Herself...

"Not long ago some person was going around the Internet claiming they were me, saying lewd things in my name. 'come and get me' and other stuff I don't want to repeat. I don't want people to know who Alicia is. I want to be an actress. I want to create other people. I don't want other people to create me." -- Alicia Silverstone, RS

"Going back to college, I would have a hard time with the people, what I've learned in the past two years you can't learn from school, you can't learn from books. You only learn from experience: being alone, unsheltered, available to anyone who wants to bash you. I'm an open wound - anyone wants to take a shot, here I am." -- Alicia Silverstone, RS

"Aerosmith made a hell of a lot of money off that video [Cryin'], their sales tripled or something. They would have been crazy not to ask me back." -- Alicia Silverstone, RS

"I'd like to correct the idea that the videos came first, that's absurd. I'm not a video star turned actress. I'm a serious actress who spent a few days making videos. I've done a lot more than videos, you know." -- Alicia Silverstone, RS

"I'm not like Cher, I don't care about clothes, I don't dress up, I look like crap all the time. But the quality we do share is wanting to please everyone. I'm just now learning you have to separate your life from the life of your family, that your needs are different. Everyone goes through that." -- Alicia Silverstone, RS

"I have realisations, Like that life is bigger than us. People forget that, but I'm always aware of it. Like when I'm in the bathroom looking at my toilet paper, I'm like 'Wow! That's toilet paper?' I don't know if we appreciate how much we have. I just want a few things I can treasure. So the things I do have, I'll appreciate - like toilet paper. Just the other day, I said to Jennifer [Rubin], 'Hey Jennifer, maybe we should stop using toilet paper.' We decided to thank the toilet paper instead, so that's what I do when I leave the bathroom. Thank the toilet paper." -- Alicia Silverstone, RS

"My interest is in becoming a good actress, I'm not interested in the celebrity of it all. Outsiders say, 'God, she's so successful!' And I'm like 'No, I'll tell you when I'm successful.'" -- Alicia Silverstone, RS

"My father used to say, 'Marry someone Jewish, and I'll buy you a house,' now I tell him, 'If I don't marry someone Jewish, I'll buy you a house.'" -- Alicia Silverstone, RS

"I don't really date. It's not that I don't want to, its just that no one really ever asks me." -- Alicia Silverstone, VF

"I do my best, But it's much more important to me that my brain be working in the morning than getting up early and doing exercise.... The most important thing for me is that I eat and that I sleep and that I get the work done, but unfortunately... its the perception that women in film should look a certain way." -- Alicia Silverstone, VF

"My perception of [Hollywood] is that it is a very cold and very dry and very dark. But the people, they always have a smile on their face, though I always wonder, How deep in that smile on their face is the knife? I just don't understand how jobs could rule people's lives. I don't really understand how you could think, I'm going to backstab, cheat, harm, just to get ahead in a business. I mean, I guess in the caveman world it happened, but it happened to survive!" -- Alicia Silverstone, VF

"I care about what I do, but my career is so second in my life, I love creating, but I don't know if I want to do anything forever.... I could take all this and say, 'Shove it up your ass,' because I don't care. I really love what I am doing on this movie, but, at the same time, I'd rather be married and have beautiful babies and millions of animals and eat delicious food and get as fat as I want... Live! You know?" -- Alicia Silverstone, VF

"What people think about me, of doing with me - it can be gross." -- Alicia Silverstone, RS

"If this is the life of a starlet, it's a yawn." -- Alicia Silverstone, RS

"I'm just some wacked-out, freaky little tomboy, there's half a million girls who could blow me away." -- Alicia Silverstone, RS

"People think, 'Wow, you're an actress, so people must be really nice to you and kiss your ass. NOBODY kisses my ass." -- Alicia Silverstone

"My favorite thing in the world is a box of fine European chocolates which is, for sure, better than sex." -- Alicia Silverstone

"My boyfriend calls me 'princess, but I think of myself more along the lines of 'monkey' and 'retard'." -- Alicia Silverstone

"I think I can deceive people. I'm like, the nice, sweet girl when you meet me. And I don't have any bad intentions. But I'm a bad girl too." -- Alicia Silverstone

"I don't want to be known as the Aerosmith chick, but it's fun to put on the boots and makeup and act like a tough girl." -- Alicia Silverstone

"I'm very uncomfortable with my body, and I'm not interested in people seeing it on screen." -- Alicia Silverstone

"I love karate, kicking and punching everybody. But because I've been so busy producing this movie, I haven't been able to do it as much as I would like." -- Alicia Silverstone, Premiere

``I'm just a little girl. I think I have a good head on my shoulders and I'm not going to act like a fool, but, after all, I AM just a little girl. I don't claim to have any sophisticated ideas about sex. What can I do about what `they' think anyway? I mean my image is something someone else sees -- not me.'' -- Alicia Silverstone , Virginian-Pilot

``I don't think I have a sexpot image at all. I feel pretty normal. It's only when I do interviews that people want me to evaluate my life in five minutes. It's too early to evaluate it. All I can say is that I'm not crazy. In this business, that's saying something. Actually, it's saying a lot.'' -- Alicia Silverstone, Virginian-Pilot

[In Answer to "What can't you live without?"]

"I love, love, love apricot baby food. My closet in the kitchen is filled with jars of it. I love Lucky Charms and Cocoa Pebbles cereal. I love my purple couch, and I love dancing. I used to have the best stuffed animals, but Samson [her dog] ate them." -- Alicia Silverstone

[In Answer to "What is your version of prince charming?"]

"Prince Charming is very nice and very honest and very confident in who he is and funny and knows how to have a kick-ass fun time. Is willing to melt away so that nothing else exists in the world except himself and his princess and loves food and cats and every life form except human beings which is not necessary."
-- Alicia Silverstone.
