Jennifer Coolidge is loved for her comedic skills ― but sadly, she doesn’t seem to love herself as much as her fans do.
The star of “White Lotus”, who recently won the Critics Choice, Golden Globe and Emmy awards for her role as Tanya McQuoid in the hit show, said that she doesn’t feel good in Hollywood even though she has been working for a long time.
“I’ve been around forever, since I was 30 — that’s a long time,” she told Page Six last week. “But when I go to a party with some of my fellow actors, I don’t know any of them. I live a secret life in New Orleans and only know people I meet at work and my friends from The Groundlings. “
When asked why he doesn’t respect himself as much as his fans do, Coolidge mentioned his dating life.
“Oh, I don’t know.” I mean, in my dating life, I have never found anyone suitable for me,” he said. “I haven’t found the love of my life.”
“I think I made the wrong choices. It makes you insecure and you don’t think you’re great,” he continued, adding that, although people in Hollywood sometimes tell him they love his work, “that’s the only way you know what he means.” [they] I’ll give you a job.”
The actor, who is experiencing what some fans are calling his career “Jenaissance” amid an awards sweep, also poked fun at himself during recent headline acceptance speeches. At the Globes, she talked about a big dream that had “ceased” with age and thanked “White Lotus” producer Mike White for giving her a fresh start. At the Critics Choice Awards, he sent a message to the “despairing” crowd: “It ain’t over ’til it’s over.” It’s not over until you die.
Although Coolidge talked about running for “small jobs” to continue going to Hollywood for many years, for his fans, he was always an icon, with memorable performances as Stifler’s mother in “American Pie” and as a fan favorite. -shoots Paulette in “Legally Blonde.”
