Alicia Silverstone is loving the single life.
During her July/August cover story interview with Redbook, published on Monday, June 18, 2018, the Clueless star opened up about her love life amid her recent split from her rock musician husband, Christopher Jarecki.
“I love [dating],” she began. “Yes, I go on dates, and I find it very fascinating meeting interesting, intelligent, different people.”
Silverstone continued, “I’m super excited about being available and open to whatever’s next. Of course, there’s tons about it that’s confusing. I call my girlfriends and I’m like, ‘What does this mean?'”
The American Woman star went on to discuss what it’s been like to co-parent the exes’ 7-year-old son, Bear Blu, following their breakup. “Obviously, it’s heartbreaking,” she told the magazine, explaining, “You don’t ever think you’ll be apart when you get married. All I can really say is that we’ll co-parent Bear together, and this is completely a good thing for both of us.”
As Smash Block TV previously reported, Silverstone, 41, officially filed for divorce from Jarecki, 47, in late May 2018. After 13 years of marriage, the former couple had announced their separation in February of this year.
“They still deeply love and respect each other and remain very close friends but have mutually decided to separate after being together for 20 years,” the actress’ rep released in a statement to Entertainment Tonight at the time. “They have a son together who they will continue to co-parent.”
Silverstone cited “irreconcilable differences” in her divorce filing, while listing their date of separation as March 15, 2016. At the time, she requested joint legal and physical custody of their son. Meanwhile, it was revealed that spousal support would be decided in accordance to their prenuptial agreement.
Just days after officially calling it quits, the actress shared an update on the situation with Us Weekly. “I’m doing great,” she simply said. “We love our son, [and] everything’s good.”
Silverstone and Jarecki married in 2005, before welcoming their first child together in 2011.
