Jennifer Coolidge, best known for her role as Stifler’s mom in American Pieadmitted that she received a lot of “sex attraction” from men because of the role.
Jennifer Coolidge has always been an icon.
And it seems like her role as Stifler’s mom has had a pretty big impact on her personal life.
And so, on July 9, 1999, a film burst into cinemas, the likes of which the American public has not yet seen …
It was lewd, lewd, hilarious—it featured a teenager doing unspeakably sexy things with the most American dessert, apple pie.
Named appropriately. American Pie…
And it was a real hit among the teenage audience.
Stars American Pie became breakthrough stars.
Who can forget Eugene Levy as the excruciatingly clumsy father? Or Jason Biggs as Jim, the nerd protagonist desperately trying to lose his virginity?
Or Shannon Elisabeth as Nadia, a very hot Slovak exchange student.
What about Sean William Scott as Steven Stifler, a lewd but oddly good-looking jock?
But there was one character who quickly grew to overshadow her relatively small role in American Pie.
She was blonde, buxom and sexually insatiable. She preyed on impatient teenage boys, and they loved her for it.
Stifler’s mom… and she was quickly labeled a MILF.
According to Modern vocabulary, the word milf means “The mother I would like to fuck.” It even entered the common dictionary as “vulgar slang” to describe “an extremely attractive older woman who usually has children.”
Other mothers have come and gone, most notably Mrs Robinson of Graduate…
But one MILF stands above all, Jennifer Coolidge.
She played Paulette in the movie Blonde in law and Sophie in the sitcom 2 girls are broke.
She has a strong Twitter presence and a sly, offbeat sense of humor. However, none of her roles had as much resonance as Stifler’s mom.
When the film first came out, Coolidge’s character was a hit.
And it cannot be denied that she was very much in demand by the male audience.
In short, “Stifler’s Mom” is the epitome of fantasy.
And it seems like life has been imitating art when it comes to her lewd role, as she recently admitted that her sex life has blossomed since the release of the hit movie.
However, while the role had its perks, she admitted that not all of them were positive…
In his interview with Diversityshe stressed that after playing Janine Stifler, she felt typical, meaning that she could not get more serious roles.
“The saddest thing in life is that you just make decisions about yourself,” she said.
“If I don’t get big roles, I come to the conclusion that people think that I am not capable of it.
“And then I decide that I am not capable of this. You really must have [White Lotus director] Mike White, who comes in and says, “I think you can do it,” she said of her latest role on the HBO series. White Lotus.
And she admitted that this is one of her greatest achievements, because “no one thought” that she could do it.
The actor added, “One thing in my life I did very well… I made great friends.
“If Mike never made it and we just White Lotus like a play in a small theater 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 thought I could do.”
Therefore, although work on American Pie it was not all that was intended, Coolidge admitted that it had some advantages.
She talked about how her relationship has changed since she was in the spotlight.
Speaking with Diversitythe star said, “I played a lot of being a MILF and I got a lot of sexual action from American Pie.
“There were so many benefits to this film. I mean, there would be like 200 people that I would never sleep with.”
Coolidge played this character as many as 4 times in American Pie, American Pie 2, American Wedding, as well as American reunion.
You must love her!
