Jennifer Coolidge admits to having slept with 200 people after her infamous role in American Pie

Jennifer Coolidge has 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 “played a lot of being a MILF” and “a lot of American Pie sex action” in 1999 .

“There were so many upsides to doing this movie. I mean, there would be about 200 people I would never have slept with,” the Legally Blonde star told Variety.

While portraying the matriarch of the Stifler family, her character tried to woo her teenage son’s schoolmate, 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 pair go on to have a few more flings, earning her a reputation as a “MILF”. [‘Mother I’d like to f**k.]’

The hit comedy – which featured an ensemble cast including Jason Biggs, Shannon Elizabeth, Chris Klein, Alyson Hannigan and Eugene Levy – arrived in theaters in 1999 and grossed over $235 million worldwide, according to Box Office Mojo.

The performance led her to return for sequels such as 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 in Friends.

During her last interview, Coolidge shared that after so many decades of rejection, she became fearless because she felt she had nothing to lose.

“Ten years of my audition life,” she told the magazine, “none of it has been a job.” The fear is gone when you’re so used to losing. There is a certain freedom there.

The star also shared that she almost said no to her role as Tanya on The White Lotus even though her friend, series creator Mike White had written the role for her.

“I didn’t like the way I looked,” she said as she gained weight during COVID-19, which she was very candid about.

And she added that she had no idea The White Lotus would become such a big hit when she was filming the first season.

“The best thing was no one knew if it was going to be anything!” said the star.

Now: Jennifer Coolidge is doing better than ever as the lead actress on the critically acclaimed hit series The White Lotus, which will begin its second season in October.  Seen in 2001

“Ten years of my audition life,” she told the magazine, “none of it has been a job.” The fear is gone when you’re so used to losing. There’s a certain freedom in that’ (seen in 2021)

But she was delighted to have had so much screen time: “I feel like the coach asked the other actors to let me dribble the ball more.” Give the ball to Jennifer from time to time. I can shoot now.

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

“I did one really good thing in my life,” she said. “I chose good friends. If Mike [White] never had a hit, and we just did white lotus as a play in a little theater where everyone paid 10 bucks to see it, that would still be one of the greatest things that ever happened to me . Because it was killer work that no one else thought I could do.

“Whatever Mike White has done for me, I wish for every actor,” Coolidge added. ‘Even if they fail. We all want a challenge – something really scary that we may not be able to pull off. I think we all want this opportunity.

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

“The saddest thing in life is that all you do is make decisions about yourself,” she noted. “If I don’t get big roles, I come to the conclusion that people think I can’t do it.

“And then I make the decision that I am incapable of this. You actually have to have a Mike White coming in and saying, “I think you can do it.”

Now she is hunted for projects.

“The people I could never get in – all of a sudden they’re asking me to be part of their business,” she shared.
