It is hard to believe it has been nearly 20 years since Cher screamed "as if," but it actually has! It is also easy to forget some of the stars of the hit movie. So let us refresh your memory and tell you where they are now!

Alicia Silverstone as Cherilyn "Cher" Horowitz

Well, since playing the lead Alicia took on several roles in both TV and film including many prominent roles such as Barbara Wilson/Batgirl in Batman & Robin, Heather Jasper Howe in Scooby Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed and Goody in Vamps.

Also since starring in Clueless she has gotten married and become a mother. She did grab attention in March 2012 when she uploaded a video of herself feeding pre-chewed food to her son from her own mouth, a process called premastication. In response to the criticism she simply said it is natural and has been going on for thousands of years. Definitely something you couldn't imagine her character Cher doing in Clueless.

Stacey Dash as Dionne Davenport

So what has Cher's best friend been up to, apart from loosing the fine braided hair? Well, unlike Alicia she continued to play her character in the TV series that followed the movie. She starred in 64 episodes of the show and can still be seen today as a contributor for Fox 5 News.

She has also had her fair share of problems in her past, having to divorce her husband and file a restraining order, saying he had hit her on several occasions. Her character Dionne would have been the first to tell her not to have taken the first hit and to leave then.

Brittany Murphy as Tai Frasier

Now here is the sad part of the article. As I am sure many of you readers know, poor Brittany passed away back in 2009. It is still a tragic shame as Clueless was the start of her fantastic career. She went on to do so many big movies and I still find myself wishing she was still around to make more films. She starred alongside some big names in Hollywood including Drew Barrymore in Riding in Cars with Boys, Angelina Jolie in Girl Interrupted, Eminem in 8 Mile, Bruce Willis in Sin City, and the list could go on and on.

Perhaps the nicest part about Brittany was, despite her starring in some big films, she also always had time to appear on the small screen, something which probably helped her create the fan following that she did.

Paul Rudd as Josh Lucas

Much like Brittany, Clueless launched Paul Rudd into Hollywood. It was his first step, bringing him to star in such roles as Paris in Romeo + Juliet, David in The 40-Year-Old Virgin and, Peter Klaven in I Love You, Man. He also ended up being a pretty important character in Friends, but I shall not reveal that now since many people are only just watching Friends now on Netflix. He has also landed the role of Scott Lang in the upcoming Marvel movie Ant-Man which will no doubt help him become an even bigger star in the coming years.

Since Clueless he has also gotten married to Julie Yaeger and they have a son and daughter.

Dan Hedaya as Melvin "Mel" Horowitz

Dan had a well established career before Clueless and, if nothing else, could be seen as the experienced actor on set, compared to the rest of the cast. Since Clueless he has starred as General Perez in Alien Resurrection, provided the voice of Mr. Gunk in Robots and most recently starred as Detective Dix in Gotham.

In 2006 he was given the P.T. Barnum Award from Tufts University for his many years and great works in the entertainment industry.

Elisa Donovan as Amber Mariens

Elisa joined fellow cast member Stacy and also starred in the Clueless TV series as her character Amber. She also starred in another popular Teen TV series Sabrina the Teenage Witch as Morgan Cavanaugh the year after the Clueless TV series ended. Her movie career has not been as prominent as some of her fellow cast members, but she did star in the series of Television Films The Dog Who Saved Christmas as Belinda Bannister.

She married her husband Charlie Bigelow in 2012 and earlier that year the couple welcomed their daughter.

Justin Walker as Christian Stovitz

For poor Justin Clueless was as good as it got. He retired from acting in 2005 with 3 of his final performances being in documentaries focusing on the 10 year anniversary of the film. He has instead opted to open Teddy Teadle's Grill in Rancho Mirage, California.

Donald Faison as Murray Duvall

Donald can be found without much difficulty. The man has gone on from Clueless with roles getting bigger and bigger as he has gone down the year. He was met with huge success as one of the main cast members in the hit TV show Scrubs as Dr. Chris Turk, starred as Huey in Uptown Girl alongside past Clueless cast member Brittany Murphy, and was the superhero Doctor Gravity in Kick-Ass 2.

He has a total of 5 children so far with number 6 on the way. A son from one relationship, fraternal twins a son and a daughter, and another son with Askey and he has a son with his current wife CaCee Cobb, and late 2014 the couple announced they are expecting another. Now I wonder what his character's girlfriend Dionne from Clueless would say about that.

Breckin Meyer as Travis Birkenstock

Clueless was one of his first ever movies back in 1995, despite him having been on television for several years already. However, Clueless was not his last film and he has starred in many since. He starred as Josh Parker in Road Trip, Nick Schaffer in Rat Race and Jon Arbuckle in both Garfield live-action movies.

He married screenwriter and director Deborag Kaplan in 2001 and they have a daughter. He also has a daughter from a prior relationship. However, in 2012 the pair announced plans to divorce.

Jeremy Sisto as Elton Tiscia

Well, he went from one of the most popular boys in school from Clueless to being the son of God in the television film Jesus. He was also the character Scott in Wrong Turn and has even voiced one to the most famous comic characters of all time, Batman in Justice League: New Frontier. He has also seen success on the small screen in shows such as Six Feet Under as Billy Chenwith, Law & Order as Detective Cyrus Lupo, and is set to appear as Peter in The Returned.

He was married for 9 years to Marisa Ryan but they divorced in 2002. In 2009 he had his first child a daughter with Addie Lane and later that year the pair married. In 2012 the couple welcomed their son. BuddyTV even ranked him #98 in their list of "TV's Sexiest Men of 2011." I'm sure his Clueless character, Elton, would be proud.

Wallace Shawn as Mr. Wendell Hall

In Clueless he was the teacher Cher helped find love so he would be happier in life and as a side effect she gained a better grade in his class. He had a very prominent career behind him also prior to Clueless so, along with Dan Hedaya, they acted as the fathers of acting on set. He appeared in 17 episodes of the Clueless TV show, appeared numerous times in Star Trek Deep Space Nine as Grand Nagus Zek and his voice is recognized by countless children around the world as he voiced Rex in the Toy Story franchise.

Twink Caplan as Ms. Geist

Well, sadly after Clueless nothing big ever really happened to Twink again. She did star in films such as Look Who's Talking and Look Who's Talking Too as Rona, and did reprise her role from Clueless in the TV show. But apart from some small roles throughout the years her career has never really twinkled since.

So which of the cast do you think is still Clueless? Who has got a clue and has amazed you in the years?
