When people think of Alicia Silverstone they generally think back to her 1995 movie "Clueless" but this is a completely inaccurate definition of this individual. For a woman who has lived the majority of her adult life under the microscope of Hollywood she has done an exceptional job of balancing her work, family and outside interests. Alicia is an actress who is making a positive difference in the lives of others through her acting, her activist fight to protect animals and the environment and her books for women.
For most actresses in Hollywood who achieve early success the news about them is usually about their various television and movie projects and the trouble they often get into. In contrast, when people hear new information about Alicia Silverstone it can range from an update about one of her upcoming television or movie projects or be an announcement about one of her books or some Internet link discussing her various activities whether they be PETA, environmental or her vegan lifestyle. The one thing that is distinguishing Alicia from some of her other acting contemporaries is the absence of "drama" in her life which is replaced with positive acts of activism and her other interests.
In 2014 her fans will be seeing Alicia in two entertainment projects, the television movie "HR" and the movie "Angels in the Stardust". In addition, she will be releasing her second book "The Kind Mama" in 2014 which discusses how women can have a great pregnancy. Her first book was "The Kind Diet". For people who remember Alicia as a highschool teenager who had no idea about the concept of life and they see her transformation into woman who has changed into a woman who is advocating the healthy, positive and friendly, dare we say, "nice" aspects of life it is a great change and has enabled her to become a favorite of the older part of the 18-43 demographic who similar to her are now mature adults.
Alicia's various endeavors have made her similar to a "moving target" for the entertainment media because she is always doing something and those things are all generally positive whether it be trying to help new mothers have a more positive pregnancy experience, fighting for the rights of animals and protecting the environment or being shown on the set of her television program with her son and husband. Quite frankly, the gossip columnists and the Internet "trolls" find it almost impossible to throw dirt at her and criticize her because her personality is positive and her actions are the same. The general concept behind one of Alicia Silverstone's most notable and criticized movies, "Batman & Robin is that in the end, "good always overcomes evil" and her career and life seem to be indicative of this perspective.
Alicia Silverstone is an example for young Hollywood actors and actresses that if you are willing to involve yourself in things other than your career you will develop a balance with your work and life that will enable you to prosper as both an actress and as a person.
