I think I can speak for a lot of people that are in their 20s and 30s right now, that Stifler’s mom from American Pie was one of the OG “mom crushes.”
Or perhaps “MILF,” is the much more fitting term…
Some might even say Stifler’s mom could’ve been an inspiration for New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson, who went viral after his ex-girlfriend exposed him for sleeping with his mom’s best friend (of course, that wasn’t the comeback she thought she had).
Incase you were wondering who portrayed the iconic role in the movie, it’s actress Jennifer Coolidge, who has also been in projects like Legally Blonde, 2 Broke Girls and more, and she recently sat down for an interview with Variety…
And if you were wondering if she benefited at all from her role as Stifler’s mom, you are more than correct.
In a short clip the outlet posted, she says:
“You know, I got a lot of play of being a MILF, and I got a lot of sexual action from ‘American Pie.’ You know what I mean? I’m just talking about there was so many benefits of doing that movie.
I mean there would be like 200 people that I would never have slept with.”
What a career… imagine being the premiere Hollywood MILF, and then having that translate to action in real life? Not a bad way to make a living AT ALL.
Some actors hate to be pigeon-holed into one specific role, like Matthew McConaughey who turned down millions and millions of dollars once he wanted to get out of the “rom-com hunk” role, but not Jen here, she embraced it. She dove headfirst into it… and then, headfirst into the sack approximately 200 times.
She’s been going to work since that movie was released back in 1999, and still at the young age of 60 years old, I’d say she probably doesn’t intend to slow down anytime soon.
And of course, if you’d like to relive the OG scene…
