Jennifer Coolidge admits she slept with 200 individuals after her notorious position in American Pie

Jennifer Coolidge said she would have slept with 200 fewer people if she hadn’t landed her infamous role in the American Pie franchise two decades ago.

After becoming an almost overnight sensation playing Stifler’s Mom, the 60-year-old actress admitted she was “very interested in being a MILF” and “a lot of American Pie sex action” in 1999.

‘Making that film had so many advantages. I mean, there would be like 200 people that I would never sleep with,’ said the Legally Blonde star Diversity.

Playing the matriarch of the Stifler family, her character tried to seduce her teenage son’s classmate, Paul Finch (played by Eddie Kaye Thomas) in every way.

During the film, she has sex with Finch, much to her son’s horror, and the two have a few more flings, earning her the reputation of a ‘MILF’. [‘Mother I’d like to f**k.]’

The hit comedy – featuring an ensemble cast that included Jason Biggs, Shannon Elizabeth, Chris Klein, Alyson Hannigan and Eugene Levy – hit theaters in 1999 and grossed more than $235 million worldwide, according to Box Office Mojo.

The performance led to her return for sequels including American Pie 2, American Wedding and American Reunion; as well as The Broken Hearts Club: A Romantic Comedy, Legally Blonde, A Cinderella Story and a small role on Friends.

During her latest interview, Coolidge shared that she was afraid after so many years of rejection because she felt she had nothing to lose.

‘Ten years of my life listening,’ she told the magazine, ‘there was no job involved. The fear is gone when you are so used to losing. There is some freedom.’

The star also said that she almost didn’t say anything about her role as Tanya in White Lotus even though her friend, series creator, Mike White wrote the part for her.

‘I didn’t like the way I looked,’ she said of putting on weight during COVID-19, which she was very honest about.

And she said that she had no idea that the White Lotus would become so big when she was filming the first season.

‘The main thing was that nobody knew if it was going to be anything!’ said the star.

Now: Jennifer Coolidge is doing better than ever as the lead actress in the hit series The White Lotus, which premieres its season in October.  Appeared in 2001

‘Ten years of my life listening,’ she told the magazine, ‘there was no job involved. The fear is gone when you are so used to losing. There’s some freedom’ (seen in 2021)

But she was very happy that she got so much screen time: ‘I feel that the coach asked the other actors to let me dribble the ball more. Give Jennifer the ball once in a while. I get to shoot now.’

And she has the creator of White Lotus to thank for that.

‘I have done one thing really right in my life,’ she said. ‘I have chosen great friends. If Mike [White] ever, and we did White Lotus just as a play in a small theater where everyone paid 10 bucks to see it, it would still be one of the greatest things that ever happened to me. Because it was a killer job that no one else thought I could do.

‘Whatever Mike White did for me, I want that for every actor,’ said Coolidge. ‘Even if they fail. We all want a challenge – something scary that we won’t be able to succeed at. I think we all need that opportunity.’

And now she has regained her confidence after years of blaming herself for her choices.

‘The saddest thing about life is that you only make decisions about yourself,’ she said. ‘If I’m not getting great roles, I come to the conclusion that people think I can’t do that.

‘And then I make the decision that I can’t do that. You have to have Mike White come in and say, ‘I think you can do this.’

Now she is being chased for a project.

‘People I could never get in the door of – suddenly they want me to be a part of their stuff,’ she shared.
