Jennifer Coolidge recalled an “awkward” sexual encounter with a much younger man after she played Stifler’s mother in the 1999 comedy “American Pie.”
During an interview with Ariana Grande for Entertainment Weekly, the 61-year-old actress described how her sex life improved after taking on the role of the iconic “MILF” Jeanine Stifler.
“It kind of opened up a world to a much broader group of handsome men — and younger men,” the “White Lotus” star told the 29-year-old singer.
She continued: “This one guy was particularly young – legal of course, it was all very legal – but it was funny because we had to … One moment was a little awkward because he … No, I won’t go in on the details.”
“But then, the next morning, I told him I needed a blow-dry. So he was so young that we called his mom to see where I could get a blow-dry.”

“It was so weird that it happened on the phone, it was very clear that we were in bed together,” Coolidge added.
“Well, she gave me a good recommendation at a local mall, so it all worked out.”
Despite the relationship’s awkward end, the Emmy Award winner told the “Thank U, Next” hitmaker that the unnamed man was the “best d—” she’s ever had.
“It was definitely the youngest guy,” Coolidge said. “He was just very, very charming.”
“‘American Pie’ was just — it helped my dating life in a way I can never explain,” the “Legally Blonde” star added. “If I hadn’t had that movie, I don’t think… Well, let’s just say it would have been a really boring decade.”
Coolidge broke through in her career with her scene-stealing role in “American Pie,” which became a worldwide blockbuster and spawned three sequels.
She played the seductive mother of high school jock Steve Stifler (Seann William Scott), who takes the virginity of her son’s boyfriend Paul Finch (Eddie Kaye Thomas) on a pool table in the first movie.
Coolidge reprized her role in the film’s sequels, 2001’s “American Pie 2”, 2003’s “American Wedding” and 2012’s “American Reunion”.
The actress previously told Variety that she “got a lot of sexual action” after playing Stifler’s mother.
“I played a lot as a MILF and I got a lot of sexual action from ‘American Pie,'” she told the outlet in August. “There were so many benefits to making that movie. I mean, there would be like 200 people I would never have slept with.”
However, in her interview with Grande, Coolidge clarified that she had been joking about the number of people she slept with.

“I said that jokingly [in a previous interview] and, God, you really can’t make jokes in our town, because I made the terrible mistake of saying, ‘Thank God for that movie, I have to sleep with 200 men,’ or whatever,” she said.
“And look, I’d love to say that was true, but I mean, that was a little bit of an exaggeration.”
