As you can see, Jennifer Coolidge made room for two Jennys as she gave her own short poetry reading of Jennifer Lopez’s iconic song “Jenny From the Block.” The camera then cuts to a stunned JLo saying, “I like that. I really, really like that.” The Marry Me actress wouldn’t be the only one who did as comments came pouring in welcoming their “queen” to the TikTok world. This video came out three days ago and she already has 1.7 million likes with 838,000 followers. If The White Lotus helped her popularity with today’s generation, TikTok will blow up her fan following.
The White Lotus may have given Jennifer Coolidge her first set of major awards like her recent Emmy Award and this year’s Golden Globe, but she can’t forget about the iconic roles that came before that one. The 61-year-old actress once spoke about the love she has for the well-regarded comedies she did like Best in Show and Legally Blonde. And she can’t leave out her role as Stifler’s mom in American Pie for helping her achieve MILF status. Just like Jennifer Lopez knows where she came from, her fellow Jenny hasn’t forgotten either.
Jennifer Coolidge’s latest film role is with Jennifer Lopez in Shotgun Wedding where she’ll play Lopez’s mother-in-law who along with the rest of the wedding guests is taken hostage during her son’s destination wedding. But don’t get too worried about Coolidge’s character as she has wild gunfights to better protect her family. Shotgun Wedding’s critical reviews may not have been overall positive, but the two Jennys have received plenty of standout praise for their roles.
Jennifer Coolidge and Jennifer Lopez received positive reactions from TikTok users and critics for their new movie together. The praise for these two talented actresses is sure to continue in any project they work on next. You can check out Shotgun Wedding on your Amazon Prime subscription on January 27th.
