Biography

A master of improvisational comedy with movie star beauty, Groundlings grad Jennifer Coolidge broke out as Stifler's Mom, the ultimate MILF, in "American Pie" (1999), a role she would recreate for each of its sequels. As one of the star members of Christopher Guest's mockumentary troupe, Coolidge brought her wicked smarts to stupid hilarious characters in "Best in Show" (2000), "A Mighty Wind" (2003) and "For Your Consideration" (2006). She won raves for her Botoxed evil stepmother turn opposite Hilary Duff in the hit "A Cinderella Story" (2004) and charmed Reese Witherspoon as the sweet but spacey manicurist Paulette in "Legally Blonde" (2001) and "Legally Blonde 2: Red, White and Blonde" (2003). After playing the oversexed, hard-driving agent of Matt LeBlanc's titular "Joey" (NBC, 2004-06), she scored big-screen laughs in the animated "Robots" (2005), Adam Sandler's "Click" (2006) and the parodies "Date Movie" (2006) and "Epic Movie" (2007). After a dramatic turn in the polarizing "The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call - New Orleans" (2009), she returned to comedy as a former hooker with a heart of gold and head of air on "The Secret Life on the American Teenager" (ABC Family, 2008- ). A thoroughly unique force-of-nature, Jennifer Coolidge brightened any project in which she appeared with her inimitable off-kilter timing and killer comedy instincts.

Bonus Trivia

.

She was a distant cousin of 30th U.S. president Calvin Coolidge.

.

"Yes, I'm drinking again. I guess I should be worried. I really get offered a lot of bloated alcoholic roles. But I'd rather be a bloated alcoholic than somebody's ordinary wife." – Coolidge on her role in "Down to Earth," quoted in the Toronto Sun, April 4, 2000

.

"I remember sitting around this group of girls one time, it was camp or something, and we had to go around and tell everyone what we wanted to do. Everyone said something very realistic and I was like, 'I might be Queen of Monaco.' Everything I thought of was so much grander than what everyone else was thinking. In some ways that has really worked for me. If you shoot way out of the ballpark, somehow you believe something cool could happen." – Coolidge to Hollywood.com, July 9, 2001
