15 Things You Might Not Know About ‘Clueless’

Did you know that before it was a hit movie, writer/director Amy Heckerling pitched Clueless to TV executives as a 90210-type series titled No Worries? As if! Get ready for even more Clueless facts in the latest installment of You Think You Know Movies!

The role of Cher in Clueless is pretty much synonymous with Alicia Silverstone now, but she almost didn’t get the part. Sarah Michelle Gellar was originally offered the role but had to turn the part down due to conflicts with her schedule on the daytime soap opera All My Children. Heckerling has seen Silverstone’s appearance in a number of Aerosmith music videos and decided to cast her as Gellar’s replacement.

“You Think You Know Movies?” is a ScreenCrush original series that dives deep into the cinematic worlds of your favorite movies and freeze frames a few tidbits you might not have known. We’ve already tackled Star Wars, The Avengers and Spider-Man, but now, don’t be way harsh and watch these Clueless facts!
