Bio

Jennifer Coolidge is an American actress best known for her starring role as Joey Tribbiani's tough-as-nails and blunt-to-a-fault talent agent, Bobbie Morganstern, in the television sitcom Joey, from 2004-2006.

She is better known in recent times for her television roles as Betty in The Secret Life of the American Teenager (2008-2012) and as Sophie Kachinsky in 2 Broke Girls.

Coolidge can also be seen on the big screen in Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events. The Paramount Pictures release, directed by Brad Silberling and starring Jim Carrey, Meryl Streep, and Jude Law was released in 2004.

She also lends her vocal talents alongside Robin Williams, Ewan McGregor and Halle Berry in the animated film Robots, for Twentieth Century Fox.

In 2003, she was seen in two of the largest grossing comedies of the summer. In MGM's Legally Blonde II: Red, White, and Blonde, she reprised her role opposite Reese Witherspoon as Paulette, the manicurist who becomes an important ally to Witherspoon's character. She also reprised her popular role as Stifler's Mom in the third installment of Universal's successful American Pie trilogy, American Wedding.

Coolidge is known for her breakout performance in Christopher Guest's critically acclaimed Best In Show, in an unforgettable role as a woman who's love for her 95-year-old husband encompasses such similarities as a taste for talking and soup.

She followed this up with 2003's A Mighty Wind, once again for director Christopher Guest. Playing a publicist with absolutely no clue, Coolidge once again shone with her impeccable comedic style.

In 2002, Coolidge starred in the Broadway production of Claire Boothe Luce's comedy The Women and was nominated for a Drama Desk Award for Best Featured Actress in a Play. The all-star cast also featured Kristen Johnson, Rue McClanahan, Cynthia Nixon and Mary Louise Wilson.

Coolidge has also appeared on television with guest roles on Sex and the City, Friends, Frasier, and on Seinfeld as a bewildered girlfriend/ masseuse who refuses to lend her talents. She was also heard in recurring roles in Fox's animated hit series King of the Hill.

Coolidge earned her Bachelor of Arts degree from Emerson College and soon thereafter started her career at the renowned Groundlings Theatre in Los Angeles.

She currently resides in Los Angeles.
