It can be said that the very first MILF that appeared in a movie was Jennifer Coolidge on American Pie since every single person who watched it said the same: she is the best!

Directed by Paul Weitz, the raunchy film followed a bunch of young people in hilarious situations trying to find their way in life. The cast included Jason Biggs, Alyson Hannigan, Seann William Scott, Chris Kein, Tara Reid, and many more. Jennifer Coolidge appeared almost at the end of the movie portraying Jeanine Stifler, or, better known by the fans, Stifler's mom.

After the movie, we saw Jennifer Coolidge in some other films such as Zoolander, Promising Young Woman, and the following movies of the American Pie Saga. However, on a more personal level, it appears that her role as Stifler's mom got her a lot of action, not specifically in films.

In a recent interview with Variety, Jennifer Coolidge revealed that American Pie got her a lot of sex. "I got a lot of play of being a MILF and I got a lot of sexual action from American Pie,"  she shared in the interview.

For those who have not watched the film, Coolidge's character has a fling with Paul Finch (Eddie Kaye Thomas), a classmate of her son, Steve Stifler (Seann William Scott).

The actress then added, "There were so many benefits to doing that movie," Coolidge, continued "I mean, there would be like 200 people that I would never have slept with."

During the interview, Jennifer Coolidge also spoke a bit about her most recent project, the White Lotus where she portrays heiress Tanya McQuoid. In fact, thanks to this series the actress got her very first Emmy nomination this year.

"I have done one thing really right in my life," she explained., before praising the series creator Mike White. "I've picked great friends. If Mike was never successful, and we just did White Lotus as a play in a little 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 else thought I could do."

However, she also admits that she was hesitant of taking the role because she gained some weight during the pandemic. "During COVID, I just let everything go," she explained. "I let everything go most of my life but I really let everything go during COVID."

Admitting she is a bit “vain” Coolidge said that she wanted to look and portray her role in The White Lotus a certain way. "I wanted to look a certain way when you're on film … I was not ready for this cool opportunity. It goes to show, you should always be in the best shape because you just don't know."
