Jennifer Coolidge, born August 28th, 1961 in Boston, Massachusetts. Ms. Coolidge’s dream was to become a singer; she kept her father, a plastics manufacturer, entertained by belting out lively songs in their living room. She attended Norwell high school, and stayed close to home during college, graduating from Emerson College in 1985 with a bachelor’s degree in theater. From there she moved to New York and joined the Gotham City improv group, which led her to Los Angeles where she became a long time member of The Groundlings. She had her television debut in Seinfeld in the early 90’s. Coolidge is a versatile character actress who is known for playing unscrupulous, unappealing women with a flair for delivering lines dripping with sexual innuendo.
