Jennifer Audrey Coolidge (born on August 28, 1961) is an American actress best known for playing Hilary Duff's evil stepmother in A Cinderella Story (2004); Paulette, the manicurist in Legally Blonde (2001) and its sequel; the voice of Aunt Fanny in the animated feature Robots (2005); for her role in The Secret Life of the American Teenager as Betty; and for her regular role in the NBC sitcom Joey as Joey's agent, Bobbie Morganstern. She voiced Lazy Susan on Gravity Falls.
Coolidge was born in Boston, Massachusetts, the daughter of Gretchen (née Knauff), and Paul Constant Coolidge, a plastics manufacturer. She was raised in Norwell, Massachusetts, alongside a brother, Andrew, and two sisters, Elizabeth and Susannah. Coolidge attended Norwell High School, the Cambridge School of Weston, Emerson College in Boston, and the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City. Her charitable work has included a history of supporting AIDS assistance and animal rights.
Coolidge is known for her supporting roles in many comedy movies and guest spots on television. She is best known for playing "Stifler's mom," the consummate "MILF," character in the American Pie films, though she is also known for supporting parts in other films, including Hilary Duff's stepmother in A Cinderella Story; Paulette, the manicurist in Legally Blonde and its sequel; "Hottie Police Officer" in A Night at the Roxbury; and the voice of Aunt Fanny in the animated movie Robots.
She also has played comic parts in the improv mockumentaries Best in Show, A Mighty Wind, and For Your Consideration, all directed by Christopher Guest. She also appeared in the 2006 film Date Movie as a spoof of Barbra Streisand's Meet the Fockers character. Epic Movie, released in 2007 and made by the same people behind Date Movie, was the first movie in which she starred.
Coolidge had a regular role in the NBC sitcom Joey as Joey's agent, appearing in 37 of 46 episodes in the series. She originally starred in an episode of Friends in its final season as Amanda, a tactless and uninhibited wannabe whom Phoebe and Monica try to shake off. Prior to her Friends appearance, she was a regular on She TV, a very short-lived sketch comedy that also featured Nick Bakay, Elon Gold, Simbi Khali, and Linda Kash. She also has appeared on According to Jim, playing Jim's sister and in an episode of Sex and the City, and on Frasier as Frederica, Martin Crane's new physical therapist. Coolidge also appeared in the kiddie comedy Slappy and the Stinkers and as Adam Sandler's wife's friend, Janine, in the 2006 comedy film Click.
