Alicia Silverstone‘s son, Bear Blu, is 9 years old and because of his vegan diet, he never gets sick and never has a temper tantrum. And Alicia recently admitted that during quarantine she and Bear have been taking baths together. To quote Bear Blu (probably): MOOOOOM!!!!
Page Six says that Alicia Silverstone opened up about how she’s spending quarantine. The woman who brought you Bird-Feeding Your Human Child, is now bringing you Bathing With An Almost Ten-Year-Old. She spoke with the New York Times about her life as an animal rights advocate and pro-vegan activist. And while talking about quarantine life, she said:
“My son and I take baths together, and when he’s not with me, I take a bath and that really feels nourishing and comforting.”
They do stuff other than saving water together. They also dance, bounce on the trampoline and do jump rope. And when it’s time to focus on her, Alicia uses her time being hyper-vigilant about her, you guessed it, diet.
“I always bring everything back to diet. When I don’t eat well, I don’t feel well, and then my moods go all over the place.”
I would LOVE to know what an out-of-sorts Alicia Silverstone gets up to. Because when she’s firing on all cylinders she’s pre-chewing her children’s food, deeply-inspecting child-poop, and talking about how her kid’s trying to French her. I really wonder what the fuck she would say if she was off her game. But that may never happen since Alicia has to stay in tip-top physical strength because she has a life full of long walks, yoga, meditation, and journaling. Gwyneth Paltrow just broke a sweat.
Alicia also said that she’s had to fight backlash for talking about her son’s vegan diet, which her spokesperson told the Times is her son’s choice.
“People said lots of different things, and I was sort of “the freak,” and I guess I’ll take pride in that because it is hard to be the person that’s speaking out, and it is hard to be the person that is saying the thing that isn’t what everybody else wants to hear.”
I’m pretty sure the only reason Alicia doesn’t work at Goop already is that Gwyneth is afraid of her taking over. Gwyneth is probably preparing her next Goop article as we speak: “Conscious Bathing: How Familial Baths In Liquid Myrhh Will Bless Your Bloodline“.
