Actor Alicia Silverstone says she looks so young because of her healthy vegan diet.

The star - who is best known for her iconic role as Cher Horowitz in Clueless - made the comments in an interview in the July/August issue of  Redbook.

They follow her recent appearance on Lip Sync Battle, where she dressed as her Clueless character, leading viewers to remark that the 41-year-old hasn't changed in the two decades since the film was released.

'No accident'

Speaking about her lifestyle, Silverstone said: "Do I think I really know what works? Yeah. It's no accident that everyone says to me all the time that I still look like I did in Clueless.

"I see the difference if I eat a certain way for a day, so I choose to make more than one meal be that great meal."

She added that she is open-minded to everyone's choices after being asked as 'wellness trends', saying: "I really think everyone has to be given the respect to do what they choose to do."

Vegan children

Silverstone also spoke about raising her seven-year-old son Bear Blu as a vegan, saying: "I'm really open to Bear being a little bit flexible out in the world.

"When he is with other kids who are eating regular pizza - if there's no vegan pizza, I want him to have the pizza. I know other vegans might not agree with that or think it's acceptable, but I don't care.

"I just try to always make sure that at some point in the day he gets some brown rice in him, some greens, and some beans. And if he does that, I feel good. You do the best you can."
