“My name is Ali-SEE-yuh … Not Alee-Sha,” the “Clueless” star revealed with a shrug before repeating the correct pronunciation.
In the caption, she added: “Just an FYI… it’s Ali-SEE-yuh.”
She also took to the post’s comments to elaborate.

“It doesn’t bother me though!” she wrote. “By my sweet mama didn’t like it…. so for her…. get it right! Ali-SEE-yuh.”
Fans were shocked by the nonchalant reveal after decades of mispronouncing her name.
“WHAT I DIDN’T KNOW THAT” commented a viewer.
“Well it seems like I’ve been saying your name wrong my whole life haha,” wrote another.
A third added: “Excuse me while I question my entire life…”
Others made jokes about her “Clueless” character, who was named Cher.
“Um… It’s ‘Cher’ but ok…” said one.
Joked another: “Her name is Cher, C-H-E-R people mispronounce it [as] Alicia.”
Silverstone made her TikTok debut last week to recreate an iconic “Clueless” scene, but recruited her son, Bear, to help out.
In the video, Silverstone donned a black and yellow plaid jacket that identical to the one she wore in the movie and strutted her stuff to “Just A Girl” by No Doubt.
