Jennifer Coolidge, 61, revealed in an interview with Allure, via Entertainment Weekly, that the actress had to go to the emergency room after an allergic reaction to a spray tan she got for her role in The White Lotus.
The siren spoke about her preparation for the role, saying ‘I didn’t want to look like a big, white marshmallow on the beach in Hawaii, so I got a spray tan.
‘I got on the plane, and I started to feel really weird. By the time I got off the flight, I had to go to the emergency room.’

The actress will once again step into the shoes of Tanya McQuoid for the show, which follows vacationers as they lounge in paradise for a week though all is not as it seems.
Coolidge’s character is a troubled woman whose mother dies before her vacation begins.
The Emmy Award winner’s involvement with the second season is impressive, given the number of other upcoming projects she will start work on soon.

Coolidge is also set to play a significant role in the television series The Watcher, which centers around a married couple who move into a new home and begin to be stalked by someone calling themselves ‘The Watcher.’

‘The saddest thing about life is that you just make decisions about yourself,’ she noted.
‘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 Mike White (Producer who gave her the White Lotus role) that comes in and says, ‘I think you can do this.’’
She added that now she is being chased for projects, saying, ‘People that I could never get in the door – all of a sudden they’re asking me to be part of their things.’
