Jennifer Coolidge shared intimate details on “The Kelly Clarkson Show” that left Kelly Clarkson at a loss of words.
On an episode of the famous talk show, the 59-year-old actress, best known for her roles in “Legally Blonde” and “American Pie,” shared that she pretended once while vacationing in Hawaii to be a twin so that she could date two men.
“I really like this island (Kauai), too. (Spent) many, many vacations here, and I’ve had all sorts of crazy experiences here,” Coolidge said.
When she told the beginning of the story, Clarkson was interested and wanted to know more details.
“Wait, you know, I shouldn’t have said that, now it’s gonna sound really uninteresting,” Coolidge said.
“Quite a few years back, I did come to Hawaii, and when you come and you’re on vacation alone, you can kind of like create anything you want,” Coolidge said. “I ended up meeting these two guys that were best friends and I liked them both, and so I told them that I had an identical twin and I dated both guys... for two weeks.”
Clarkson eventually said that what Coolidge did seemed exhausting.
Coolidge then explained that she doesn’t know if she would have the guts to do that now, but it was perfect timing at the time of the incident. She said when you are younger, you can get away with anything.
Commenters on the YouTube video agreed with Clarkson and said it would be a funny story for a sitcom episode or movie.
“Honestly, this would be a great idea for a sitcom,” one person said.
Another person added, “She is sooo amazing and crazy, I love her!!”
Coolidge rose to fame as Stifler’s mom in the “American Pie” film series. She also appeared as Paulette Bonafonté, Elle Woods’ best friend, in “Legally Blonde,” reappearing in the sequel “Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde.”
