An unused period
Speaking about the beginning of her career, Jennifer Coolidge admitted: “Now that I’m old enough to really think back on my life and certainly my mistakes, I notice a lot of them. But I never had a strategy. I went from one job to another“.
The actress reiterated: “I have to say I made the terrible mistake of not riding the wave I had at the beginning of my career. It was sort of in the ’90s when I had Legally Blonde, Royal Breeds, and American Pie. And then a few years later, there was Cinderella Story and stuff like that. But that was the moment“.

Jennifer then added: “I started chasing men. I wasn’t paying attention. I just thought my whole life was ahead of me. I never said, ‘I want to do…’… I got some jobs, but I didn’t have a plan“.
Tanya’s interpreter in The White Lotus then explained: “I think that was my fatal mistake, because it took so long to be able to get something years later. I think back and say, ‘What was I thinking?’. And then I bought this house in New Orleans and I focused on restoring it“.
Among the regrets of the actress there is also that of not dedicating herself more to the theater. Jennifer admitted those experiences could have helped her: “There is nothing worse than being insecure at work. I was working a while ago and I don’t know if I was really close to the director’s vision because every time we shot a scene he said: ‘Yes, yes. Why don’t we try it again?’. And you think, ‘They don’t have the balls to tell me how bad I’m acting’“.
