Jeremy Sisto Talks Kissing Alicia Silverstone In ‘Clueless’

Jeremy Sisto Talks Kissing Alicia Silverstone In 'Clueless'

Clueless has always been a favorite movie of mine. I don’t know what that says about me, but I can pretty much spout off the words to the movie as it plays. “Suck and blow is a game, Elton!”

Now that many, many years has passed since the movie’s release, Jeremy Sisto can wax on about his kissing scene with Alicia Silverstone. Right before doing Clueless, the duo filmed Hideaway and they had a bit of a crush on each other. How cute, right?

“I did a movie with [Alicia Silverstone] right before, and we kind of had a crush on each other. It was very sweet,” the now 40-year-old tells ‘People’ of the actress, calling their on-screen kiss a “childhood dream come true.” (That movie is the 1995 thriller ‘Hideaway.’)

He adds, “I’m sure a lot of my friends back at home were jealous.”

I wish they would’ve gotten together….What do you think?

Alicia Silverston: “Kind mommas” don’t get postpartum depression. WTF.

Alicia Silverstone And Blu Hang At Central Park

Alicia Silverstone knows how to offend women all over the world, I’ll give her that. When I hear women make comments like these below, it makes me want to punch her in the face.

I’ll say this. I had my babies young. Had my firstborn when I was 23, and my second when I was 25. I felt like I knew it all – and at the time – I had no problem telling people what I thought about child-rearing. Fast-forward to now… I know nothing. I knew nothing. Things that worked for me then wouldn’t work for everyone. I think everyone needs to do what’s right for them – and what’s right for their children. Ever parent/child relationship is unique. So preaching what should be done – and shouldn’t be done is a dangerous thing.

Alicia Silverstone has released a book called “The Kind Mama,” and she has plenty of advice for every woman. You won’t believe the garbage she’s spitting out.

On vaccinations:

“While there has not been a conclusive study of the negative effects of such a rigorous one-size-fits-all, shoot-’em-up schedule, there is increasing anecdotal evidence from doctors who have gotten distressed phone calls from parents claiming their child was ‘never the same’ after receiving a vaccine. And I personally have friends whose babies were drastically affected in this way.”

Tampons destroy your body:

“Your chichi is the most absorbent part of your body. Unfortunately, feminine-care manufacturers aren’t required to tell you what’s in their products, which means that no one’s talking about the potential pesticide residues from non-organic cotton and the ‘fragrances’ containing hormone-upsetting, fertility-knocking phthalates that are snuggling up to your hoo-ha.”

Postpartum depression is only for mean moms:

“Though it’s less common among kind mamas, some women experience the blues after giving birth.” 

Use her advice, cause she knows it all:

“[This book can] help prevent or even cure your PMS, insomnia, allergies, breakouts, weight struggles, thyroid condition, lupus, multiple sclerosis—while significantly lowering your risk of heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.”

Avoid meat and dairy while you’re pregnant:

“You wouldn’t want to bring your baby into a junk-filled house with a leaky roof and backed-up plumbing, right?”. Otherwise, pregnant women are “tracking toxic sludge through your baby house.”

I consider myself a “kind mama” and I DEFINITELY had postpartum depression with my first child. I find most of her comments offensive – but I know there are a whole lot of women who will agree with her.

I guess to each his own.

UPDATE: Here’s what a “kind mama” looks like:

Alicia Silverstone’s Not Into Vaccinations

Celebrities Visit "Good Morning America"

For what it’s worth, actress Alicia Silverstone has decided to throw herself into the ring regarding the vaccination debate for children.  Always a controversial and heated issue- Silverstone has decided to break down her own beliefs on the subject in her new parenting guide, ‘The Kind Mama.’  She appeared on Good Morning America yesterday to discuss the book and her experience as a mother to her two-year old son, Bear, who she shares with her husband, musician Christopher Jarecki.  

Alicia Silverstone has revealed that her two-year-old son Bear has never been vaccinated for the usual run of childhood diseases including chickenpox and measles or had a ‘drop of medicine’ because she prefers a natural approach.

The 39-year-old vegan actress writes in her new parenting guide The Kind Mama that she believes a ‘plant-based diet’ is an ‘essential part of well-being’ and works with a doctor who shares these views.

She speaks further:

She continues: ‘I’m not against Western medicine. The problem is we’re using it as a first step for everything, even when it’s not needed.’

And then:

‘As far as critics, I’m very secure in the choices I make because I’m really informed and I trust my instincts and when I need help, I go to the people I see parent or birth or be pregnant in a way that was really inspiring me.’

She has plenty more to say in the interview here, and of course in her book.  I’m sure she will get plenty of feedback, positive and negative.  People are so defensive of their parenting decisions, which is understandable given the importance of the subject.  It sounds like she is very well informed and is working closely with a doctor to make sure she feels she is doing best by her child- which is all any of us can do right?  I don’t know if there are any right or wrong answers on the subject, you’ll feel plenty of guilt and uncertainty either way.  I do think people are very quick to over-medicate these days- but then of course- modern medicine was developed for many good reasons too.  Either way, Silverstone sounds like a caring, loving and passionate mom.  Good for Bear.

Alicia Silverstone Wants Mothers To Share Their Breast Milk

Alicia Silverstone Wants Mothers To Share Their Breast Milk

Alicia Silverstone has started a vegan breast milk sharing program for new mothers. She has found that there are some mothers who cannot produce enough of their own breast milk, so she has made a way to help out!

She took to her official website at to talk about the idea. She said:

A couple weeks ago, another mama I know gave birth to a son. She e-mailed to let me know how things were going, and she was beside herself. She’d tried to do everything so that this baby would have the healthiest, happiest start in life–she nourished herself during pregnancy with clean, kind foods; had a beautiful home birth; and planned to breastfeed from now until her son could say, “No thanks.” But because of a breast reduction surgery, she found she wouldn’t be able to make enough milk for him, no matter how much precious boobie time they spent together. She tried reaching out in her community for donor milk, but it was almost impossible to figure out what kind of lifestyle choices the donors had made. And after all that hard work keeping herself vibrant and healthy, she felt she had a right to demand better for her baby.

A lot of women unfortunately have a similar struggle, and there’s no reason why they shouldn’t be able to give their babies the most amazing start in life with clean, mean, glorious breast milk. And because we are a community of beautiful souls who recognize the importance of food as health, I say we help support those mamas and babies who need a hand during one of the most important times in their lives. It’s why I’m starting the Kind Mama Milk Share, a way for moms to connect with other moms in their area. If you have milk to share–post it! If you are in need of milk–post it! Think of all the babies we can help raise together!

Kudos to her for starting a fabulous group of women who aim to help each other. Would you become part?
