- Jennifer Coolidge told Variety that she had a lot of “sex action” after starring in “American Pie.”

Jennifer Coolidge said she had sex with “200 people” after her starring role as the mom of “MILF” character Stifler in “American Pie.”
Coolidge starred in the 1999 comedy as the mother of one of the teenage leads, Stifler (Seann William Scott). In the film, Stifler’s mom gets into a fight with her son’s classmate, Paul Finns (Eddie Kay Thomas), resulting in her being called a “MILF.”
In a recent interview with Variety about her first Emmy nomination, Coolidge was asked if she preferred her nickname as a MILF or as a first-time Emmy nominee.
The “White Lotus” actress said the Emmy nomination is an “honor,” but admitted there were “advantages” to starring in “American Pie.”
“I’ve played a lot at being a MILF, and I got a lot of sex action from ‘American Pie,'” the 60-year-old actress said. “There were so many benefits to making this movie. I mean there would be like 200 people I would never have slept with.”
In a recent interview on Sirius XM’s The Jess Cagle Show” Coolidge reflected on her other famous role as Paulette in the “Legally Blonde” film franchise.
Coolidge said she wants to film a long-running “Legally Blonde 3” soon so fans can stop quoting her famous “4th of July” line from the second film.
“I get thousands and thousands of texts and videos of people doing the Fourth of July,” Coolidge said. “Men, women, these TikTokers and a lot of drag queens send me these funny videos. I feel like if we did a ‘Legally Blonde 3,’ I would have something else. Maybe it was some other vacation that we could take advantage of.”
He continued: “I really felt like this year I was like, okay, I’ve really done this Fourth of July thing and I’m going to have to insist on Reece that we can make it this year because I’m not going to make it. to fix it. I won’t do it, I can’t do it. I can’t do it next year. I can not. You know what I mean; I need new material.”
Coolidge is currently nominated for an Outstanding Actress in a Limited Series Emmy for her role as Tanya in the HBO series “White Lotus.”
The actress revealed last year that she almost turned down the role despite it being written with her in mind.
