Jennifer Coolidge responds to the skit sketch on Saturday Night Live that features her. The actress, who is regularly impersonated, is best known for her humorous roles in movies and television, particularly in the American Pie franchise, the Legally Blonde movie series, and the HBO anthology series The White Lotus.
Recently, Chloe Fineman, a cast member of Saturday Night Live, had the honour of portraying Jennifer Coolidge in a sketch titled “Jennifer Coolidge Is Impressed by Christmas Stuff,” in which Coolidge responds to various holiday items while capturing the subtleties of her recognisable voice and facial expressions. Soon after the comedy aired, Jennifer Coolidge reacted to it on Twitter, calling Chloe Fineman a “exceptionally brilliant impressionist” and heaping praise on the show. The humorous actor acknowledged that she had previously tried to join Saturday Night Live as a cast member but had been unsuccessful when thanking the show’s new cast members.
Coolidge has had a long and successful acting career despite never appearing on Saturday Night Live, and she is undoubtedly having a moment right now. The start of Coolidge’s career revival is difficult to pin down, but it was perhaps when the humorous actor took on a more serious role in Promising Young Woman. Coolidge portrayed the mother of Carey Mulligan’s title character, who was plagued by the tragedy of her past, in Emerald Fennell’s Oscar-winning film.
After that, Coolidge started to get interest for more dramatic roles, such as what would end up being her career-defining part in The White Lotus, a role that gives her the chance to showcase both her acting prowess and her goofy side. The eccentric Tanya McQuoid, a troubled wealthy woman who visits the resort chain in search of inner peace and revelation, is played by Coolidge on HBO’s acclaimed anthology series. She recently lost her mother. Coolidge received her first Primetime Emmy Award for the role, and she was one of only two original season one cast members to reprise their roles in season two of The White Lotus.
Coolidge is most likely not going to return for a third season of the anthology series The White Lotus because of the events of the season 2 finale, so if she wants to continue having her moment, she will need to look elsewhere. She also has a starring role in the second season of Netflix’s The Watcher, which was also renewed, and a supporting part in the upcoming romantic comedy Shotgun Wedding, which stars Jennifer Lopez.
