Alice Silverstone happy to reunite with Brendan Fraser for a Blast from the past continued — but they had private reunions right after his Oscar win.
“I’d love to do anything with Brendan… I just saw Brendan after he won his Oscar,” said the Ignorant star, 46, said at 90s Con in Hartford, Connecticut, attended by Us weekly, on Sunday, March 19. “He’s so cute and so sweet.”
Fraser, 54, won Best Actor at the Oscars on March 12 Whale star made it to the Vanity Fair Oscar after-party with his award. Silverstone also attended the event and walked the carpet with designer Christian Siriano.
“He spoke in his speech about how we are all going through these very difficult times,” Silverstone added at 90s Con. “Everyone has to grow and that is part of life [that] you struggle. And look what happened to him. So it was really fun. So yes, I like to do that [sequel].”
During the ceremony, Fraser was emotional as he took the stage at the Dolby Theater in Beverly Hills, California. “I started in this business 30 years ago and it wasn’t easy for me, but there was a facility that I didn’t appreciate at the time until it stopped,” he said in his acceptance speech. “And I just want to thank you for this recognition, because without my cast it wouldn’t be possible. It’s like I’ve been on a diving expedition at the bottom of the ocean, and the sky on the line to the surface is on a launch that’s watched over by some of the people in my life, like my sons, Holden and Leland and Griffin.”
Before making Academy Award-winning films, Fraser was a staple of 1990s romantic comedies, including Blast from the past. He portrayed Adam Webber, a man whose parents (played by Christopher Walken And Sissy Spacek) raised him in a Cold War bomb shelter after locking themselves in for 35 years. When the doors open, 35-year-old Adam explores the outside world and falls for Silverstone’s Eve Rustikov. The film, directed by the late Hugh Wilson, earned $40.3 million at the worldwide box office.
While Silverstone loved to talk about the 1999 film, she was mostly at 90s Con discussing her 1995 hit Clueless. She was on a panel with fellow cast members Breckin Meyer, Stacey Dash And Eliza Donovan as they reminisced about iconic movie and late cast member Brittany Murphy.
“I remember Brittany coming in, and she was so amazing,” Silverstone said.
Meyer, 48, added: “The [tough part] is, like we all don’t get to see the incredible work she went on to do, which sucks.
