Alicia Silverstone - Alicia Silverstone struggled with fame

Alicia Silverstone wanted to become ''unfamous'' as soon as she hit the big time.

The 36-year-old actress rose to fame after appearing in blockbuster movies including 'Clueless' and 'Batman and Robin' in the mid 90s, and found that she was unable to deal with being recognised and wanted to go back to the way she was before.

She said: ''It is hard to be famous when you are young, particularly if you did not have any plans. I wanted to become unfamous as fast as possible.''

However, Alicia admits her fame had benefits, though she does think she pushed herself too hard.

She added: ''I don't want to come across as a victim.

''Fame brings money and I was able to buy a car at 18, a Ford Bronco, and buy a house a year later, which was a huge advantage. I did six movies back to back without a break which was a stupid thing to do.''

Playing rich girl Cher in 'Clueless' also left Alicia - who has 17-month-old son Bear Blu with husband Christopher Jarecki - feeling she knew little about life because of how street-wise the character was.

She told The Sun newspaper: ''I also wish I'd had the strength to say how little I knew about life. 'Clueless' gave the impression I knew about fashion and sex - it was ridiculous because I didn't.''
