LOS ANGELES, May 8 (UPI) -- The stars of Clueless were rolling with their homies at a Los Angeles screening of the film on Tuesday.

Alicia Silverstone (Cher), Stacey Dash (Dionne) and Elisa Donovan (Amber) joined Clueless writer-director Amy Heckerling at the event and subsequent Q&A panel.

It's been 19 years since the quotable comedy, based loosely on Jane Austen classic Emma, hit theaters and became a staple of every teen girl's film collection.

At the screening, Silverstone said she thought she was "channeling Marilyn Monroe and Lucille Ball" to play Clueless' misguided heroine.

"And obviously that wasn't the case. But I just felt like that! Especially when I pushed [Elton] off [of me at a house party]," she told the panel. "Those were the things that I found lovely."

"We had so much fun," Dash said. "[Heckerling] had such a clear vision and she was able to translate it to us perfectly."

Asked whether she'd be up for a sequel, Silverstone said she would leave it in Heckerling's hands.

'I'm game to whatever [director Amy Heckerling] has in store,' she said. 'I think that time has passed, though. I don't even know what Cher would be up to these days."
