Alicia Silverstone has a new interview with Out.com, and in it she talks about her first crushes being on gay guys, her Broadway show ‘Performers’, both her new films being pretty ‘camp’, and how her new movie speaks to teenagers who are considered ‘outcasts’.
When talking about her broadway show about strippers, Silverstone says, “I love being on Broadway. I said three months ago that I really wanted to do another play and then, all of a sudden, here it was. I read it, and it just felt like a really fun adventure.”
She’s also asked about her new films ‘Butter’ and ‘Vamp’ being considered camp, to which she replies, “I do love being campy. Think about The Crush (1993), my first movie ever. It’s so campy. I wasn’t trying to be -- I was trying to make that character as believable as I could -- but there’s just this fun flavor to it. Vamps is that kind of movie. It has the clever, witty things that seem to speak to gay boys. They’ll all want coffins after seeing it.”
She also talks about Clueless, the movie that shot her to super-stardom, and reminisces about her character unknowingly falling for a gay guy. She continues and says, “I’ve had so many crushes on gay boys. My first love was so gay, and I didn’t know. I used to defend him because everyone would say he was gay, but he’d say he wasn’t. Then, about six years later, he had the big talk with me.”
