Alicia Silverstone says it’s Ali-SEE-yuh, not Ali-SHUH
Actress Alicia Silverstone is a 90s icon, however regardless of her a long time of fame, apparently the world nonetheless doesn’t know learn how to pronounce her title correctly. Now she’s utilizing her new TikTok account to show us the best means, as soon as and for all.
The Clueless star stitched a TikTok video that requested customers to “tell me what your name is… and then tell me what people mispronounce it as.”
“Just an FYI…it’s Ali-SEE-yuh,” she wrote. The cute, and dare I say eye-opening, video wracked up greater than one million likes and 6 million views inside a day of being posted. People within the feedback had been left completely buggin’ on the lesson on saying her title, with one writing, “Excuse me while I question my entire life…”
“Oh my good I’m just finding this out NOW?! After all these years?!” one other wrote.
(My private favourite remark although, was “I thought her name was Drew Barrymore????”)

I can relate to stalling for a couple of a long time earlier than correcting individuals on learn how to say your title — I’m 37 and I’m nonetheless letting individuals name me Kristen, Kristine, and sometimes Katherine. Proper pronunciation simply doesn’t appear to stay for me, and won’t for Ali-SEE-yuh, both. We’ve all been pondering of her as Ali-SHUH since roughly 1995 (and even earlier, if you happen to’re sufficiently old to recollect her from the Aerosmith video days on MTV). The even youthful era could solely know Silverstone from her latest flip as Kristy’s mother on Netflix’s The Babysitters’ Club collection.
Luckily, the actress says she hasn’t been significantly peeved by the way in which we’ve all been saying her title. “It doesn’t bother me though!” she mentioned within the feedback. “But my sweet mama didn’t like it… so for her… get it right!” Can’t argue with that.
Silverstone is really an icon, irrespective of the way you pronounce her title. She’s solely been on TikTok for per week or so, however she arrived with fairly a bang. Her first two movies — recreating the traditional “As if!” scene from Clueless, with that iconic yellow plaid blazer that’s in some way nonetheless in model — obtained practically 60 million mixed views.

She may be Ali-SEE-yuh — however she’ll at all times be Cher Horowitz, too, and I feel everybody can pronounce that.
