    Reese Witherspoon And Kerry Washington Could've Been Cher And Dionne In "Clueless" And My Mind Can't Process It

    Would definitely have rolled with these homies.

    There's no doubt about it: Clueless is a perfect film.

    From the fun wardrobe and '90s lingo to the beautifully immortal face of Paul Rudd, it continues to be, well, as I said, perfect.

    But what if I told you that instead of Alicia Silverstone, one Ms. Reese Witherspoon almost played the iconic Cher Horowitz.

    "You know one thing that is public...is I auditioned SO HARD for Clueless and I didn't get it," the Little Fires Everywhere star told BuzzFeed.

    "I met with Reese [Witherspoon] because everyone said, 'This girl is amazing. She's going to be huge,'" Clueless director Amy Heckerling confirmed in 2015. "I did see some scenes of hers and went, 'Wow. She's amazing.' But Alicia is Cher."

    "I did too!" her co-star Kerry Washington revealed.

    "That would've been a different...we should do, like, a remake..." Kerry continued.

    "We should re-create a scene from Clueless, that would be so fun!" Reese said.

    "Yes, with us!" Kerry agreed.
