Alicia Silverstone Has A Fitting Reply For Body Shamers

No time for body shamers!

Alicia Silverstone has no time for body shamers. The Clueless star shared a post on Instagram that featured a comment under a photo of herself in a black sundress, which read the message, “Alicia Silverstone candid fat photo.”

An image then popped up of Silverstone, giving the comment the middle finger. “Damn. I thought I looked good.. 😂🤷🏼‍♀️,” she captioned her post. The actress used the photo in her TikTok as a backdrop and appeared in front of it while giving the middle finger as the song “abcdfu” by GAYLE played in the background.

This isn’t the first time Alicia Silverstone has dealt with comments from body shamers.

The actress’ first run-in with body-shamers was over two decades ago when she was doing press for her role as Batgirl in 1997’s “Batman and Robin.” The then-20-year-old says paparazzi and tabloids nicknamed her “Fatgirl.”

Opening about it, she said in April 2020, “they would make fun of my body when I was younger. It was hurtful but I knew they were wrong. I wasn’t confused. I knew that it was not right to make fun of someone’s body shape, that doesn’t seem like the right thing to be doing to a human.”

At that time too, Silverstone had a response for body shamers, but in a subtle way. “I didn’t say ‘f— you’ and come out like a warrior but I would just walk away and go, ‘Okay, I know what that is and I’m done, I’m not going near that again,'” she said.

The Kind Diet author has remained dedicated to a healthy lifestyle through the years. She swears by her vegan diet for keeping her in shape.

“I haven’t been working out a lot or in a long time because I was doing a film — and when you’re the lead in a film, I challenge you to exercise,” Silverstone told Us Weekly in November 2018. “It’s not possible. And to be a mom too? It’s really not humanly possible. I’ve turned into mush, but the good thing about when I turn into mush is I still look OK because I eat so clean.”

The American Woman alum continued at the time: “My diet makes me feel better so I can sleep better and when I sleep better, I feel better. When I get sick it doesn’t take me down.”
