Alicia Silverstone has officially joined Bumble!
In a new interview, the 44-year-old Clueless actress opened up about her decision to finally sign up for the dating app.
“I just think it’s a great way for people to meet,” Alicia shared with People. “You know, I think that it’s really nice that we have friends that can connect us. You can be set up by friends, you can be at a party and tell people, ‘Hey, do you know anyone?’ You can do things like that. I have experience where I’ll go to an in-person event and no one’s really engaged. They’re sort of in their phones, and it’s a bit discouraging.”
She added, “It can be like, how are you supposed to meet anyone in the real world? You know what I mean? I mean, sometimes people are, and sometimes you do meet people out in the real world, and I certainly have, and it’s been wonderful, but I think that it’s just a really nice way for people to meet.”
Alicia also admitted in her interview that she is “always intrigued” by dating apps.
“I always thought it sounded so fascinating. It sounded like it opened up a lot of possibility for people and created hope,” Alicia shared. “And I’ve heard tons of beautiful stories from people. I think it’s very much the norm now. And it makes sense. It’s kind of like going to a bar, but it’s more effective.”
