A Look At Alanis Morissette’s Impressive Filmography article takes a fun ride in presenting the many film appearances of Alanis Morissette. Most rock fans are probably not aware of the many films and television shows that Alanis Morissette has performed in both as an actress playing multiple characters including herself and also ultimately  God. Of course, the reference to God was the charter she played in a special guest appearance in the Kevin Smith motion picture Dogma. It was definitely one of the best rock star cameos ever featured in a motion picture. That may not make much sense now, but back then it was perfect timing as Alanis Morissette was one of the biggest stars in the world when she appeared in Dogma.

Alanis Morissette brought such passion to the rock and roll world back in 1995 when she became a household name with the songs from her Jagged Littel Pill album. It only makes sense that a performer so passionate and of course so beautiful would find her way onto the silver screen. Let’s take a look at the many films and television appearances of this great artist we all know as Alanis Morissette. We added as many clips as we could find. Some of these appearances are full-fledged characters with plenty of screen time while others are just for a few seconds. Nonetheless, its great viewing for Alanis Morissette fans.
