Alicia Silverstone is speaking candidly about her son’s change in appearance.
Detailing to the outlet that her 9-year-old son’s hair was “down to his waist,” the Clueless star said, “He buzzed it. He took it off,” before revealing she kept his chopped locks “to be saved forever.”
“He’s adorable and he’s happy, and it’s all good,” Silverstone said of Bear’s new look. “He’s adorable with hair, he’s adorable without hair!”
Silverstone admitted that cutting Bear’s hair was “a big growing up moment” for her as a mother. (Silverstone shares her son with ex-husband Christopher Jarecki.)
“I didn’t realize how, when they take their hair off, how much it changes [them],” Silverstone said. “He looks like a kid instead of my baby.”
“These are things that are hard to adjust to but wonderful,” she added. “It’s so beautiful that they get to make decisions for themselves and grow and fit into themselves, right? It’s pretty amazing.”
Last month, Silverstone documented her son’s hair transformation on social media as he said goodbye to his signature long locks.
“Yes, It’s true. Bear cut his hair!!” Silverstone captioned her post at the time. “My baby’s growing up 😭💔 I miss his hair!!!!! Was it his decision? Yes. Did I cry inside as I watched him get it cut? Maybe … but did I try to stop him? Not for one second.”
“The reason he chose to keep it for as long as he did was because he loved it so much!!!” she continued. “He just wanted to try something new. Although I have a feeling he’ll find a way back to his long hair again in the future. No matter what though, I will always support my sweet, caring, and precious little boy in every decision he makes. ❤️🥰”
