Alicia Silverstone led touching tributes to her late co-star Brittany Murphy during a ‘Clueless’ reunion.
The cast of the classic 1995 teen rom-com, Alicia, Paul Rudd, Breckin Meyer and Donald Faison, reunited for a panel at the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo on Saturday (23.03.19), where they shared their fondest memories of the star, a decade after her tragic death at the age of 32, with Alicia revealing that she knew Brittany was “the one” for the part of Tai Frasier right away.
The 42-year-old actress – who portrayed Cher Horowitz – said: “I had to tell [writer/director] Amy [Heckerling] just in case she didn’t know that Brittany Murphy was the one that had to play the part.

“She was so good.”
She also gushed about Brittany (who died of pneumonia and anaemia in December 2009), while delivering “one of her favourite” lines in the film. Alicia recalled: “I love when she says, ‘You’re a virgin who can’t drive.’
“It’s just one of my favourite moments of the whole movie. It’s just, her face scrunches up so good.”
Breckin Meyer, who portrayed Brittany’s on-screen love interest Travis Birkenstock, gushed about how versatile she was as an actress, referencing her role as Alex alongside Eminem’s Rabbit in ‘8 Mile’.
He added: “Ridiculously talented. Like, you see Tai, and then you watch ‘8 Mile’, and you’re like, ‘That’s the same person?'”
Whilst Paul Rudd – who played Josh – said: “She was a sweet person, too. She was … she was just always so smiley. And sweet.”
Donald Faison (Murray) added: “She could sing, she could dance.”
After the reunion, Alicia posted a selfie with her co-stars and one with Paul on Instagram.
Gushing about the ‘Ant-Man’ star, she wrote: “Such a sweet reunion last night at dinner with my pal #PaulRudd. I love this guy! I mean he ordered vegan for both of us….. Swoon One more day to go at #c2e2, hope to see u tomorrow! (sic)”
Alicia admitted Paul, Breckin and Donald had her “laughing so hard” at the Expo.
The other snap was captioned: “So much fun hanging out with these boys today #paulrudd @donald_aison and @breckinmeyer! They had me laughing so hard on our panel. Such a great day at #c2e2 (sic)”
