Following suit as one of Silverstone's co-stars, Bear tried to smoothly wrap his arm around his mother's shoulder.
"Ew! Get off of me," the actress mouthed along to her original dialog as she pushed him away. "Ugh, as if!"
The loving mother then smiled as she pulled her son back in for a hug and planted a kiss on his head.
"Ugh! As if... I wouldn't join TikTok," she joked in the caption.
