A Cinderella Story (a 2004 romantic teen comedy directed by Mark Rosman) would never have been complete without Sam’s evil stepmother Fiona Montgomery, a character played by none other than Jennifer Coolidge.
Coolidge is not only an actress who is good at what she does but also a comedienne whose comedic talent is reflected in her acting performance, giving her whole performance that unique touch that sets her apart from any other actress.
Besides the role of Fiona Montgomery in A Cinderella Story, Coolidge has also starred in American Pie movies, including Legally Blonde and 2 Broke Girls.
She was born on August 28, 1961, in Boston, Massachusetts, the daughter of plastics manufacturer Paul Constant Coolidge and his lovely wife Gretchen. Jennifer grew up in Norwell, Massachusetts with her three siblings – a boy and two girls. She is a graduate of Norwell High School, Cambridge School of Weston, and the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York City.
Coolidge began gaining ground in 1993 when she starred in an episode of the Seinfeld series. She then starred in the film Not of this Earth and then A Bucket of Blood. After that, she played a vocal role in the series King of the Hill. Soon after that came Slappy and the Stinkers, and then Night at the Roxbury.
Her big break came in 1999 and 2001 when she played Jeanine Stifler in American Pie I & II. Since then, the list of films she has appeared in is endless.
In 2009 Jennifer Coolidge proved as Genevieve McDonagh in Bad Lieutenant that she can do something completely different from what she is known for Port of Call New Orleans, alongside Nicolas Cage and Eva Mendes.
Who Is Jennifer Coolidge Husband?
Jenny has always been a bit of a mystery in her relationships. Although it is not publicly known that she is married or has children of her own, there have been rumors that she secretly married an unknown lover.
The rumor spread after a ring was discovered on her finger in an Instagram video she released sometime in 2016, although she made no announcement of being engaged or married, and fans said she must have married secretly and kept this from the media.
In 2001 Coolidge had gone out with Chris Kattan, who is 10 years younger than her, and she even loves it, as she once revealed in an interview that she loves it with younger men because they usually ask her out and she accepts it. She was also associated with Banks McClintock in 2008.
In another interview with The Guardian, Coolidge admitted that she has been in a committed relationship for 18 months but did not want to reveal his identity; she simply described him as a very smart, funny, and handsome man. He’s the whole package,” she added.

The 1.5-meter 10-inch actress was once killed by the media, as many celebrities have been. News of her alleged death began to make waves in June 2016 after a fake Facebook post titled R.I.P. Jennifer Coolidge appeared online and spread like wildfire.
Coolidge responded to the death scam with a post on her Twitter page that read, “Yes, I’m dead, and it’s great! Coolidge is still alive, alive, and well.
