Actress Alicia Silverstone says her son Bear has never had antibiotics or medical attention


Los Angeles, Dec 21 : Actress Alicia Silverstone reveals that she gets her nine-year-old son small roles in her projects so that he can join her at work.

Silverstone’s son Bear follows in her acting footsteps with appearances in the new film “Sister Of The Groom” and in the forthcoming second season of the web series “The Baby-Sitters Club”.

Alicia Silverstone has made a huge claim that her nine-year-old son Bear has never had to have antibiotics or seek medical attention.

“Because of Covid rules he can’t come (on set) unless he’s in it, so they (producers) put him in it… All I wanted was to be able to bring my baby to work. We have to support working mothers, too… I’m not going to leave my kid for months. That’s just not happening. Out of the question,” Silverstone told Entertainment Tonight, reports.

The actress is raising her son on a vegan diet and credited veganism for keeping Bear healthy. She said a plant-based diet could provide all the key nutrients the body needs.

“He’s such an example of health. This is a child who is plant-based. To never have needed antibiotics in nine years and to never have needed any kind of medical intervention… Most kids have so many ear infections, they’re taking medicine all the time. I’m not saying I wouldn’t give it to him… I’m saying he doesn’t need it,” she said.

The actress, 44, first made her claims in her 2014 book The Kind Mama, when Bear was only three-year-old.

She shared that her son has been sick only twice.

“This is a kid who’s been (sick) twice in his life. Twice. For, like, a few hours. He said, ‘Mummy, I don’t feel good. I’m going to lay down.’ In his whole life, twice. He can get a snot nose, but he’s still climbing trees,” the actress pointed out.

Now six years on and the star has told Entertainment Tonight that he is still incredibly healthy.

“He’s such an example of health. This is a child who is plant-based,” the Clueless actress said.

“To never have needed antibiotics in nine years and to never have needed any kind of medical intervention... Most kids have so many ear infections, they’re taking medicine all the time. I’m not saying I wouldn’t give it to him... I’m saying he doesn’t need it.”

"He's just so healthy. I just want to share it with the world. So people can see that a plant-based baby is actually healthy ... it's not like they're doing fine. They can do better. . "

Silverstone is regularly posting photos of her son on Instagram, and she has claimed it is because it keeps the paparazzi at bay.

“It keeps it less interesting for paparazzi to harass us... When Bear was born... people were camped outside the house for days and days. Six weeks they camped outside our house... The moment I released an image they all went away.”

But that hasn’t kept the haters away, with Bear recently being bullied for having such long hair.

In September, the actress took to Instagram to share photos of her son’s long hair, praising his confidence.

“One time my son was made fun of by other kids because of his hair on a bus ride to surf camp,” she wrote.

“After he had returned and told me, I thought he would want to cut it for a haircut appointment we had already scheduled the next day, but when we showed up, he said, ‘Please give me a trim so I can grow it to my waist,’” she said.

He's my boy! He knows who he is. He loves his hair and likes to pick it up for a long time.She added at the time that she and her ex-husband, Christopher Jarecki, did not conform to any gender norms for raising their son.
