Actress Jennifer Coolidge has credited her role as a sexy mother in American Pie with reviving her love life because she spent the following decade dating a succession of younger men. The funnywoman shot to fame in the 1999 teen comedy with her role as Stifler's Mom, an older woman who seduces her son's school friends, and Coolidge admits the part completely changed her life. The 52-year-old actress spent more than 10 years dating much younger men after coming to their attention in the movie. She tells Britain's The Guardian, "I did date younger men after that movie. I really dated younger men for the next 10, 15 years." Coolidge goes on to admit she has now been in a steady relationship for 18 months, adding, "I've been dating someone now for... about a year and a half, and you know, he's a very smart, funny guy. And handsome. He's the whole package."
