Alicia Silverstone is amazed that audiences are still interested in a 'Clueless' sequel.

The 47-year-old actress played the role of Cher Horowitz in the 1995 coming-of-age comedy and loved how her reprisal of the part for a Super Bowl commercial led to fresh calls for a follow-up movie.

Alicia told Variety: "I think people are talking about a (sequel) all the time at all times since the movie happened.

"Has it been 30 years yet? That always is a fun conversation. It's so lovely to see how people still love that movie. It's very nice."

Silverstone's latest film is the Dutch comedy 'Krazy House' – which is set in the 1990s and follows a sitcom family whose lives are transformed when criminals arrive at their door – and she had an immediate interest in the unconventional plot from directors Steffen Haars and Flip van der Kuil.

She recalled: "I got a call from my agent saying there's a really crazy script that you need to read. I did and it's a page-turner for sure. I never saw anything like this before. I was so interested.

"I watched their film, 'Ron Goossens, Low Budget Stuntman', and I thought it was really good, so stylish and such a clear point of view. You can tell these guys are artists. They're freaky and wild artists.

"I was in my car on FaceTime with them and they were so cute and lovely. I wanted to go play with them! I got to go to Amsterdam and play with all these freaks and they are all so talented."

Alicia has taken gambles in terms of her acting projects in recent times and has prioritised parts that will give her a sense of enjoyment.

The 'Batman and Robin' star said: "A long time ago I made some changes and someone said to me, 'I don't care if you work for two or three years, only do what I love.'

"That was so strange to me. Do what I love? I've just been having fun playing. I was doing a lot of theatre and they were letting me do things I wasn't allowed to do in movies. From that theatre stuff, they just started to let me do it in movies."
