One of Hollywood’s most gorgeous and favorite actors of all time, Alicia Silverstone has recently been the topic of discussion for multiple reasons but especially for her weight gain. It is not that people have forgotten about this award-winning actor after all these years, but they have kind of developed a renewed interest in her, which is what we are going to discuss today in this post. Alicia Silverstone is most famous for playing the lovable role of Cher in the super hit comedy movie “Clueless” and also starred in the big-banner superhero film “Batman & Robin”, which earned her further fame and recognition. Born in October 1974 in California’s San Francisco, Alicia Silverstone grew up in Hillsborough California. She began modeling at the tender age of six and then went on to feature in TV commercials as a child star. 

She debuted in movies with the thriller “The Crush” in 1993 and earned the MTV Movie Award For Best Breakthrough Performance in 1994 for her role in this movie. Soon, Alicia became a teen sensation after appearing in music videos for the famous band Aerosmith, which catapulted her to major success after the portrayal of the character Cher Horowitz in “Clueless” the teen comedy-drama film. Her performance of Cher was so widely acclaimed that she even signed a deal with Columbia Pictures worth several million dollars. 

Alicia Silverstone Weight Gain And People’s Body Shaming

Alicia Silverstone has been a frequent target of body shaming by the public, and she has even talked about this in some of her videos, saying that initially, remarks about her body weight did affect her to some extent. She said that comments about her weight were a frequent thing ever since she stepped into the entertainment industry during the 90s. Some reports showed certain tabloids featured during the 1990s in which there were comparisons of her body shape to “Babe the Pig“.

In an interview with “The Guardian” in 2020, Alicia shared that there was a time when she used to struggle with body shaming after she completed shooting for the 1997 film “Batman & Robin”. She said that she was a 20-year-old when the paparazzi even gave her the nickname “Fatgirl” while they were promoting the movie. She added that people would always make fun of her body weight, even when she was a little girl, and it would hurt her though she knew in her heart that they were wrong. Alicia was never confused; she simply knew that it was not the right thing to do, to make fun of somebody’s shape or size. 

At one point in time, when Alicia could no longer deal with these insensitive comments, she decided to take a break from acting, because she just wanted to walk away from this sort of negativity. She said that she grew a dislike for acting for a very long time, but eventually turned to theatre to engage in some of her passion projects and decided to stick to theatre acting forever.

Has She Undergone Plastic Surgery?

Who needs to go under the knife when they have the charisma and prettiness of the beautiful Alicia Silverstone? The 40-something actor has never been the one to back away, even in the face of criticism and comments about her body weight. In a recent TikTok video, she gave “the finger” to all her haters, who tried to pull her down once again, commenting about how “fat” she looks in her recent photos. She beams with confidence as she says that she thinks she looks great, implying that it does not matter what the public talks about her weight and shape.

As a matter of fact, this gorgeous American actor also said in an interview with ET in December 2020 that she had no plans to go for plastic surgery. She wants to keep it all-natural and maybe people can consider her as an example of what the healthy and natural process of ageing looks like. Silverstone added that she does not even want to consume anything and instead, prefers to mature naturally because everyone ages eventually.

There are some reports of her visiting Dr. Brian Kinney in Los Angeles to try the “all-natural EmFace Treatment” which is a needle-free, i.e., non-invasive natural process. Trying this treatment for the very first time, Alicia Silverstone has also documented the entire process in a video for people to watch. In the video, you can see her chuckle and smile as the “electrical healing frequency” creates magic on her face.

Plastic surgery rumors about Hollywood celebrities are not at all uncommon – with many of them actually going for cosmetic upgrade procedures like rhinoplasty, breast augmentation, liposuction, Botox fillers, and more. However, Alicia Silverstone is quite a class apart and has directly addressed questions about whether she would want to undergo plastic surgery. And seriously, we think that nothing can be better than Silverstone flaunting her confidence with an apt comeback for her haters!
