Alicia Silverstone has revealed everybody has been misspeaking her name. Most popular for her portrayal of Cher in the Amy Heckerling film Clueless, Silverstone remains a symbol for a generation who keep on imitating her character’s personal style. The film remains a clique classic with its tremendous cast of exceptional TV and film stars, and paved the way for Silverstone to turn into a major mainstream actor.
In a new TikTok video from Silverstone, the actress addresses the mispronunciation of her name. The video starts with another video of young lady asking the inquiry, “Mention to me what your name is and then mention to me what individuals misspeak it as.” Alicia reacts to the inquiry by explaining how her first name is really articulated, contrary to how it has been said all through her career. Silverstone captioned the video, “Simply a FYI… it’s Ali-SEE-yuh.” The clasp has racked up more than 1 million likes and has gotten more than 16,000 remarks hitherto. Look at the video (via Silverstone’s Twitter) beneath:
It may also be a decent practice for different famous people whose names are usually misspoke to bounce on this viral pattern, like Amanda Seyfried (articulated SIGH-fred), Lupita Nyong’o (LOO-pita Nee-yong-OH), Rachel Weisz (Ray-chul Vice), Isla Fisher (EYE-luh FISH-UR), Saoirse Ronan (SUR-sha Ro-nan) and shockingly Demi Moore (Duh-MEE Mor). On the other hand, Silverstone’s TikTok could also be viewed as a suggestion to not assume the pronunciation of an individual’s name, and that whenever allowed the opportunity, to ask for clarification. Silverstone doesn’t explain why she waited until this TikTok to finally put any misinformation to rest, however since she has, it’ll ideally lead more to articulate it effectively and perhaps consider on the off chance that they’ve been misspeaking different names without realizing it.
