Occupation: Actor

Executive summary: Legally Blonde

While she was a struggling actor, Jennifer Coolidge worked in a New York restaurant with an undiscovered Sandra Bullock. In her younger years, Coolidge was a New York party girl with a weakness for booze and cocaine. She schmoozed with O. J. Simpson at least once. After earning her a bachelor's degree in theater, Jennifer Coolidge worked for several years with two prominent improv groups, New York's Gotham City and L.A.'s Groundlings. Moviemaker Christopher Guest first saw Coolidge in a Groundlings performance, and she has appeared in two of his largely-improvised movies, as the golddigger lesbian in Best In Show, and as a bimbo PR flack in A Mighty Wind. Other prominent roles include the randy mom in American Pie, the beautician in Legally Blonde, and the wicked stepmother in A Cinderella Story.
