Happy 59th birthday to Jennifer Coolidge!

The famed actress has starred in tons of movies and TV shows, but many people will always think of her as Stifler’s mom in “American Pie.”

Want to hear something extra fun? Coolidage says life imitates art when it comes to her role as Stifler’s mom, and that it apparently has resulted in some younger guys going after her.

Speaking with USA Today, Coolidge said, “Thank God for Stifler’s mom. I don’t know if life would be this fun if I didn’t have that. As a single woman, I reap the benefits of being Stifler’s mom.”
