Alicia Silverstone Talks About Her "Fiercely Independent" Son After Divorce Filing

She used to pre-chew Bear Blu's food; is she still an overprotective mom?

Alicia Silverstone has had an eventful year. The Clueless actress signed on to star in Kyle Richards' upcoming American Woman series and announced her separation (and divorce) from husband Chris Jarecki, who she married in 2005 in Lake Tahoe and was with for more than 20 years. In the midst of everything, she and Chris are still trying to lovingly co-parent their seven-year-old son Bear Blu. And she's already thinking about the day when he grows up.

“The whole idea is that you love and attach to them so much so that they’re free to be and leave. It’s heartbreaking, but you have to,” she told US Weekly. “My kid’s so fiercely independent because he is right here [in my heart] all the time.”

Alicia made headlines when Bear Blu was young for pre-chewing his food for him, but now she doesn't know if she's overprotective or not.

“I think I’m really just a mommy," she said. "It’s hard to know if you’re doing something wrong.”
