Alicia Silverstone, Former Poet

So inspired by Howl, the movie about poet Allen Ginsberg (who is played by James Franco), Alicia Silverstone confessed that she was once a poet herself at a screening of the film this week. "When I was 18 years old I went to Shakespeare & Company, the school, and I wrote a poem about my leaves — I felt like a tree that had no leaves," she told us. "That is the life at 18." See Silverstone, Franco, and more in the Party Lines slideshow.
