Jennifer Coolidge (born August 28, 1963) is an American actress best known for playing "Stifler's mom," the older woman in the film American Pie (1999); Hilary Duff's stepmother in A Cinderella Story (2004); Paulette, the manicurist in Legally Blonde (2001) and its sequel; the voice of Aunt Fanny in the animated feature Robots (2005); for her role in The Secret Life of the American Teenager as Betty; and for her regular role in the NBC sitcom Joey as Joey's agent, Bobbie Morganstern. She is also a regular actor in Christopher Guest's mockumentary films. Coolidge is an alumna of The Groundlings, an improv and sketch comedy troupe based in Los Angeles, CA.
Coolidge was born in Boston, Massachusetts, the daughter of Gretchen (née Knauff) and Paul Constant Coolidge, a plastics manufacturer. She was raised in Norwell, Massachusetts, and has a sister, Susannah. Coolidge attended Norwell High School, the Cambridge School of Weston, Emerson College in Boston and the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City. Her charitable work has included a history of supporting AIDS assistance and animal rights.
Coolidge is known for her supporting roles in many comedy movies and guest spots on television. She is best known for playing "Stifler's mom," the consummate "MILF," in the American Pie films, though she is also known for supporting parts in other films, including Hilary Duff's stepmother in A Cinderella Story; Paulette, the manicurist in Legally Blonde and its sequel; "Hottie Police Officer" in A Night at the Roxbury; and the voice of Aunt Fanny in the animated feature Robots.
She has played comic parts in the improv mockumentaries Best in Show, A Mighty Wind, and For Your Consideration, all directed by Christopher Guest. She also appeared in the 2006 film Date Movie as a spoof of Barbra Streisand's Meet the Fockers character. Epic Movie, released in 2007 and made by the same people behind Date Movie, was the first movie in which she starred; in it, she played the "White Bitch" (the White Witch) of Gnarnia (Narnia), a lampoon of the Disney and Walden Media film The Chronicles of Narnia: the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
Coolidge had a regular role in the NBC sitcom Joey as Joey's agent, appearing in 37 out of 46 episodes in the series. She originally starred in an episode of Friends in its final season as Amanda, a tactless and uninhibited wannabe whom Phoebe and Monica try to shake off. Prior to her Friends appearance she was a regular on She TV, a very short-lived sketch comedy that also featured Nick Bakay, Elon Gold, Simbi Khali, and Linda Kash. She also has appeared on According to Jim, playing Jim's sister and in an episode of Sex and the City, and on Frasier as Frederica, Martin Crane's new physical therapist. Coolidge also appeared in the kiddie comedy Slappy and the Stinkers and as Adam Sandler's wife's friend, Janine, in the 2006 comedy film Click.
In 2005, Coolidge was invited to join the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Coolidge made one of her first appearances in the Seinfeld episode "The Masseuse". She also had a recurring role on King of the Hill as Luanne's beauty school teacher, Miss Kremzer. In 2006, she guest starred on an episode of Top Chef.
In 2007, Coolidge appeared on Thank God You're Here and The Closer, on TNT. In 2008, she guest starred on The Secret Life of the American Teenager as a call girl. In the second season, she is a frequently recurring character, playing the fiance of Ben's dad and future stepmother of Ben. She also starred in the 2008 television film Living Proof.
Coolidge curated Blake Nelson Boyd's Prospect 1.75, New Orleans, Louisiana, four coordinated art events throughout the city, June through October 2011.
In June, 2011, Coolidge told Australian radio show The Kyle & Jackie O Show that she would be touring Australia as part of her Yours For The Night stand up tour.
As of October 2011, Jennifer Coolige is scheduled to appear in 2 Broke Girls as Sophie, a neighbor of the two leads.
