Jennifer Coolidge didn’t have to bend and break to grab everyone’s attention after one of her most iconic roles.
The beloved character actor told Variety that, thanks to playing Stiffler’s mom — aka the OG MILF — in the 1999 movie “American Pie,” she was able to really increase her death toll.
“You know, I’ve played a lot as a MILF,” Coolidge told the outlet in a video promoting a bigger profile about the “White Lotus” star. “And I got a lot of sexual action from ‘American Pie.’ There were so many benefits to making that movie… There would be like 200 people I would never have slept with.”
But don’t write Coolidge off as a mere opportunist – she’s also proven to be quite altruistic.
For example, last year she gave the world a really brilliant idea for the plot of the highly anticipated film “Legally Blonde 3”.
“I Hope Reese” [Witherspoon] and I run really fast for the most part, we run from something really fast,” she told E! News at the time.
