Three Questions With Twink Caplan (a.k.a Miss Geist from Clueless!)

Q: What’s your favorite memory from filming “Clueless” and what’s your worst memory?

A: My on-screen wedding day!  I negotiated (pleaded) with my BFF and the director/writer, Amy Heckerling, to be my other bridesmaid along with Alicia.  Being in front of the camera was her least favorite thing, next to wearing pink, but she did it for me.  Carl Gottlieb, my male BFF (writer of JAWS, etc) was the minister who married Wallace Shawn and me.   Amy wrote a scene we didn’t end up using — Alicia (Cher’s) dream/nightmare of Paul Rudd and I getting married too.  So I got to marry and kiss both Wally and Paul.  Mona May designed my exquisite gown from scratch…it was stunning and I had to use an old fashioned “slant board” because I couldn’t sit in it!  Watching the fighting over my bouquet was hilarious, and the entire day felt like a real wedding.  There was no worse day on the film…We had a refreshing cast with energy and optimism.  We filmed in L.A. and were able to create jobs and opportunities all around town.  Amy’s script was clever and inventive and watching it come to fruition was sweet.

Q: What advice would you give your 22-year-old self?

A: Don’t fall in love with more than one guy at a time and the friends you make before 30 may be your friends for life.  Try to choose wisely.  Some friendships are gambles.  Know when to cut your losses.

Q: What’s your favorite line from “Clueless”?

A: Cher is talking to Tai and Dionne about virginity, and says “You see how picky I am about my shoes and they only go on my feet.”

 

Special thanks to my colorist, Erick from ItsJustBeauty.com and Sally Hershberger, (also Twink’s colorist!) for hooking me up with this amazing interview.

  1. Love that you got to interview with Ms. Geist. Classic!

    My sister did a post on our blog today about “farmer essentials”…she lives on what we consider a farm…and it totally made me think of your themed week and the quote “she could be a farmer in those clothes”.

    GREAT themed week. #bestmovieever
