With Brendan? She would do anything with Brendan. It was a lot of fun,’ said Silverstone, 46, as reported by Varietyduring Sunday’s panel with fans and his Clueless castmates Stacey Dash, Elisa Donovan and Breckin Meyer.
“I just saw Brendan after he won his Oscar and he’s so cute. He talked in his speech about how we all go through this really hard time and you have to grow up and it’s part of life that you fight and then look what happened to him! So yeah, I’m happy to do that,” he added, referring to Fraser’s Best Actor win for The Whale at the Academy Awards last week.
In the acclaimed film, the Canadian actor played Charlie, a 600-pound English teacher trying to salvage his relationship with his estranged daughter, played by Sadie Sink.
