Jennifer Coolidge has been working in Hollywood for over two decades. The 60-year-old, who has worked in a number of popular shows and movies throughout the year, has become a popular name and face. But for many fans, she is still defined by her breakthrough role as Stifler’s mother in the 1999 film American Pie. In a recent interview, Jennifer talked about the hype surrounding the role and how it has benefited her both professionally and personally.

In American Pie, Jennifer played Jeannine Stifler, a mature woman who is considered a sex symbol by her son’s teenage friends. Characters described her character as a “MILF” (mom I’d like to fuck), establishing the term in pop culture.
Speaking to Variety recently, Jennifer recalled how the role led to a lot of “sexual activity.” “I’ve played a lot of MILFs, and I got a lot of sex action from American Pie,” she said, adding, “There were so many strengths in that movie. I mean, there would be about 200 people I would never sleep with.’
Jennifer added that the role and its popularity opened doors for her professionally as well. Before “American Pie”, she auditioned for many years and played small roles, but suddenly everything changed. “People I could never let through the door — suddenly they’re asking me to be a part of their business. My friends are all surprised that this coincidence happened. My life has been going a certain way for a very long time .. I’m afraid if I analyze too much, I’ll ruin it,” she added.
Jennifer went on to play memorable roles in such successful films as Legally Blonde (2001), Epic Movie (2007) and The Cinderella Story (2003). She also had supporting roles in the sitcoms Joey (2004-06) and Two Broke Girls (2012-17). She currently stars in the HBO series White Lotus.
