She appeared as Batgirl in Batman and Robin (1997, with George Clooney as Batman), as another sexy truant in Excess Baggage (1997, with Benicio Del Toro) and as the love interest in the comedy Blast From the Past (1999, with Christopher Walken), then had lesser roles in films like Beauty Shop (2005, with Queen Latifah), Stormbreaker (2006) and The Art of Getting By (2011). On television, Alicia Silverstone starred as a lovelorn matchmaker in the 2003 series Miss Match. In later years she has remade herself as a vegan lifestyle guru, publishing the cookbook The Kind Diet in 2009.
