Alicia Silverstone

actress

Critically acclaimed actress Alicia Silverstone is best known for her roles on stage and screen. Her numerous film credits include *The Crush*, *Batman & Robin*, *Beauty Shop*, Kenneth Branagh's adaptation of Shakespeare's *Love's Labour's Lost*, and the iconic blockbuster *Clueless*, among others. In 1997 Silverstone produced and starred in *Excess Baggage*, featuring Benicio del Toro and Christopher Walken—making her, then, the youngest producer of all time. Silverstone’s stage work includes performances in *The Graduate* (on Broadway, alongside Kathleen Turner), the David Mamet-directed production of *Boston Marriage* (Los Angeles), Mamet’s *Speed the Plow*, and most recently, Donald Margulies’s *Time Stands Still *(directed by Tony Award winner Daniel Sullivan). Among her television portrayals are leading roles in three of Aerosmith's best known videos (including "Cryin’" which was voted Best Video of All Time by MTV), a Golden-Globe nominated performance in the NBC series *Miss Match*, and an Emmy-nominated performance in the hit animated children's show *Braceface*, for which Silverstone provided the voice of the main character and served as executive producer. The series earned a Genesis Award, an Environmental Media Award, and a Prism Award nomination. Silverstone has long been a vocal advocate for environmental causes and was recently awarded a "Heart of Green" award by the Hearst corporation, which recognized her pioneering work in helping "green go mainstream." Silverstone is continually asked to offer environmentally friendly fashion, dining, entertaining, and lifestyle tips to leading media outlets. Her first book, *The Kind Diet: How to Feel Great, Lose Weight, and Save the Planet*, will be published by Rodale in October 2009 and features recipes and advice which speak to the fact that, what's good for the planet is also good for the body.
