The Clueless Cast: Where Are They Now?
In honor of the film's 26th anniversary, we're checking in on what Bronson Alcott High School's coolest alumni are up to today
26 YEARS OUT
On July 19, 1995, a little movie was released that defined a generation, introduced the world to what the kids in Beverly Hills were really saying and taught everyone that knee socks and plaid are the easiest way to an iconic look. That's right: Clueless is 26 years old (we know, we're totally buggin' as well). But what, exactly, has the Bronson Alcott High School class of 1995 been up to since Cher caught the bouquet at Miss Geist and Mr. Hall's wedding? Read on to find out …
Since playing everyone's teenage idol, Silverstone has starred in a wide range of films and TV shows, including Batman and Robin and Vamps (which reteamed her with writer/director Amy Heckerling), and guest-starred on Suburgatory, which reunited her with Clueless co-star Jeremy Sisto. She most recently starred in the Kyle Richards drama American Woman. In addition, she's a passionate animal and environmental rights activist and runs The Kind Life, a lifestyle website dedicated to vegan eating and environmental awareness. Silverstone married musician Christopher Jarecki in 2005 (though filed for divorce in May 2018) and welcomed their son, Bear Blu, in 2011.
The seemingly ageless Dash reprised her role as Dionne for Clueless' spinoff sitcom, which ran from 1996 to 1999. Since then she's kept busy with film projects (including View from the Top), TV shows (like The Game) and music videos (she starred in Kanye's "All Falls Down"). In 2013, she launched the web series Stacey Dash Is Normal and has appeared as a guest commentator on Fox News. Dash has two grown children — nope, we can't believe it either!
In September 2019, Dash was arrested in Florida for alleged domestic violence after reportedly getting into a physical altercation with her husband, Jeffrey Marty. TMZ reported that Dash "pushed him and slapped his face" during the argument, leaving him with "red scratch marks" on his left arm. Marty bailed her out of jail shortly after. On June 16, 2020, Dash filed for divorce.
After her breakthrough role as the bubbly, naïve Tai, Murphy's film career took off, earning her starring roles in 8 Mile, Uptown Girls, Just Married and Sin City. Murphy also had a budding musical career, and her dance single with Paul Oakenfold, "Faster Kill Pussycat," reached No. 1 Billboard's dance chart. She married writer/director Simon Monjack in 2007 and died tragically in 2009 of cardiac arrest at age 32.
After making everyone fall in love with him as Josh, Rudd made Lisa Kudrow fall in love with him as Mike Hannigan in the last two seasons of Friends. He's starred in some of the biggest comedies of the past decade, including Anchorman, The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Knocked Up and This Is 40, and had a memorable arc as Bobby Newport in Parks and Recreation. Oh, and he's a superhero too, starring as Ant-Man in Avengers: Endgame. Rudd married Julie Yaeger in 2003, and welcomed son Jack in 2006 and daughter Darby in 2010.
In true Murray fashion, Faison followed his on-screen girlfriend Dash to the Clueless spinoff, and had small but memorable roles in Waiting to Exhale, Uptown Girls (with Murphy) and Josie and the Pussycats. He became famous for playing Dr. Chris Turk on Scrubs for nine seasons, and went on to star on the TV Land sitcom The Exes and host the TBS comedy-sketch show Who Gets the Last Laugh. He was married to Lisa Askey from 2001 to 2005, and in 2012, he wed Jessica Simpson bestie CaCee Cobb (Zach Braff was his Best Man). They have two children – son Rocco and daughter Wilder – and Faison has four older children from previous relationships.
After coining the iconic hand gesture for "Whatever," Donovan reprised her role as Amber for the Clueless sitcom. She starred in A Night at the Roxbury, Beverly Hills, 90210 and played Morgan Cavanaugh on Sabrina the Teenage Witch (as well as Joey Fatone's love interest in the music video for "I Drive Myself Crazy"). In May 2012, Donovan and fiancé Charlie Bigelow welcomed daughter Scarlett Avery, then married that October. In addition to starring in The Dog Who Saved... series, Donovan has blogged about parenting for PEOPLE, and recently released a memoir.
Sisto kept audiences on their toes after playing obnoxious rich kid Elton, starring in everything from Waitress and Six Feet Under to voicing Batman. From 2008 to 2010, he played Det. Cyrus Lupo on the NBC stalwart Law & Order, and starred in the ABC sitcom Suburgatory from 2011 to 2014. Sisto also appeared on the series FBI. In 1993, he married actress Marisa Ryan, but the couple divorced in 2002; he married Addie Lane in 2009. They have two children, Charlie Ballerina and Bastian Kick.
After he finally left the grassy knoll, Meyer continued to play slackers and stoners like Travis Birkenstock for a while, until his breakthrough leading role in Road Trip. He then starred in Rat Race, Garfield and Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, and spent three seasons on the TNT dramedy Franklin & Bash (with fellow '90s fave Mark-Paul Gosselaar). In addition to acting, Meyer is an accomplished musician, and drums for Tom Morello's side project, The Nightwatchman. Meyer married writer/director Deborah Kaplan in 2001, though the couple divorced in 2012; they have two daughters, Caitlin and Clover.
When not in court or arguing with Cher over what a dress is, Hedaya has had a long career in film, starring in iconic movies like The Usual Suspects, The First Wives Club and Mulholland Drive. He had a guest-starring role on Monk as the title character's long-lost father and most recently appeared in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
In addition to wrangling high school students and falling in love with Miss Geist, Shawn is an accomplished actor and playwright who has appeared in everything from The Incredibles and BoJack Horseman to Gossip Girl and Toy Story. In 2005, he was named a Master American Dramatist by the PEN/Laura Pels International Foundation, and he has appeared on MSNBC as a political commentator.
Walker is still best known for playing Christian, Cher's love interest who dresses even better than she does. He had some small acting roles through 2005, but left show business around then. In 2010, he became the owner of Teddy Teadle's Grill in Rancho Mirage, California.
After her wedding to Mr. Hall, Caplan reprised her role as Miss Geist in the Clueless television series, and also served as the show's executive producer. She also scored parts in Look Who's Talking, A Night at the Roxbury and Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie, and in 2010, she had a memorable guest-starring role in Community as a dance teacher.
