Jennifer Coolidge Says She Slept With 200 People Due To Her American Pie 'MILF' Role

Jennifer Coolidge says she certainly got bang for her buck when she signed up to play Stifler's mum in the American Pie franchise.

The iconic actor says the role not only helped catapult her into stardom but also into many sexual partners.

Speaking to Variety, the White Lotus star said: "I got a lot of play at being a MILF and I got a lot of sexual action from American Pie.

“There were so many benefits to doing that movie. I mean, there would be like 200 people that I would never have slept with.”

Coolidge had appeared in a few movies prior to the 1999 legendary movie about a bunch of high school students who all want to lose their virginity before the year is finished.

She played Jeanine Stifler, the mum of one of those students looking to ditch their V card, and she ends up sleeping with one of her son's friends.

The role was just as iconic as the movie franchise itself and she got to play the character four times for American Pie, American Pie 2, American Wedding and American Reunion.

However, in her interview with Variety, she lamented about being typecast after playing Jeanine Stifler and Paulette Bonafonté Parcelle in the Legally Blonde films and felt no one in Hollywood wanted her to play serious roles.

"The saddest thing about life is that you just make decisions about yourself,” she said.

“If I’m not getting great roles, I come to the conclusion that people think I’m incapable of that.

"And then I make the decision that I am incapable of that. You actually have to have a [White Lotus director] Mike White that comes in and says, I think you can do this.”

Thankfully, her role as Tanya McQuoid in the recent HBO series has helped elevate her status in Hollywood.

The way she played the hilarious and odd character has even earned her her first Emmy Award nomination.

Variety said her performance in the show 'cemented a career renaissance', which was 'more nourishing for how long Coolidge waited to deliver it'.

The actor added: "I have done one thing really right in my life...I’ve picked great friends.

"If Mike was never successful, and we just did White Lotus as a play in a little theatre 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.”
