Jennifer Coolidge praised for opening up about sexploits after American Pie – slept with 200 people

Jennifer Coolidge has won a legion of supporters after she opened up about her sexploits following her role in American Pie – revealing that she slept with 200 people after the 1999 movie came out.

Coolidge, 60, is receiving wild praise on the internet after she confessed that she has had sex with hundreds of partners thanks to her infamous role as Stifler’s mom in the comedy film over two decades ago.

People on the web have now branded the actress as a ‘true icon,’ ‘hero,’ and ‘queen,’ for the revelation, with one claiming that they want to be her when they grow up and another asking her to run for president.

Coolidge was the original ‘MILF’ (which stands for mother I’d like to f**k), since the term was coined in the movie by her teen son’s classmate, Paul Finch (played by Eddie Kaye Thomas), who wanted to get with her.

After its release, she was propelled into the spotlight – but starring as the sexy mother not only helped her career, it also aided her sex life. 

‘I got a lot of play at being a MILF and I got a lot of sexual action from American Pie,’ she told Variety recently.

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

The actress added that the ‘special attention’ she received extended beyond her bedroom antics and into the film industry too.

She added: ‘People that I could never get in the door – all of a sudden they’re asking me to be part of their things.’

Many Twitter users were enthralled with Coolidge’s admission and took to the app to praise her for being so open.

‘Jennifer Coolidge is my idol,’ wrote one person, while another added, ‘Jennifer Coolidge gives relatable queen energy and is effortlessly hilarious.’

‘Proud of her,’ joked someone else. A fourth tweet read, ‘I’m here if you’re looking for number 201.’

It followed five classmates, four of whom made a pact to lose their virginity before the school year came to an end. 

Before landing the role in American Pie, she remembered struggling to break into the industry.

’10 years of my life of auditioning,’ she recalled to Variety. ‘None of it added up to a job.’

But after so many decades of rejection, Coolidge said it helped make her stronger – and she became fearless because she felt like she had nothing to lose.

‘The fear is gone when you’re so used to losing. There’s some freedom in that,’ she explained.

The 60-year-old is also well known for playing Paulette Bonafonté Parcelle in Legally Blonde. Her other acting credits include Best in Show, A Cinderella Story, Click, Date Movie, The Secret Life of the American Teenager, 2 Broke Girls, and The White Lotus – to name a few.
