Jennifer Coolidge has made a wild confession about her sex life.

The veteran actress reflected on the success of the 1999 movie American Pie and said she managed to sleep with 200 people thanks to her infamous role as Jeanine.

Watch the trailer for American Pie:

In the raunchy comedy, Coolidge plays the mother of Stifler, played by Seann William Scott, who has a fling with his classmate Paul Finch, played by Eddie Kaye Thomas.

While she’s also known for her role in Legally Blonde and most recently in HBO's White Lotus, Coolidge told Variety that American Pie gave her a certain kind of recognition.

"I got a lot of play at being a MILF and I got a lot of sexual action from American Pie," she revealed. "There were so many benefits to doing that movie. I mean, there would be like 200 people that I would never have slept with."

The Legally Blonde actress said that the "special attention" she received went beyond her bedroom activities.

"Maybe I got this special attention because people saw me as Stifler's Mom or the Legally Blonde woman," she said. "So if they see something else... People that I could never get in the door - all of a sudden they're asking me to be part of their things."

While portraying the matriarch of the Stifler family, Coolidge's character has sex with her son's classmate, earning her the label of a "MILF" (Mother I'd like to f***).

Coolidge also shared in her interview that after so many decades of rejection she became courageous because she felt she had nothing to lose.

"Ten years of my life of auditioning," she told the publication, adding: "None of it added up to a job. The fear is gone when you're so used to losing. There's some freedom in that."

For her latest role as Tanya McQuoid in White Lotus, the actress earned her first Emmy nomination and was the only main character who got the part without an audition.

"Some jobs, I’m sort of going, 'Wow, this isn’t worth working for.' What Mike [White] wrote, I was staying up late every night," Coolidge admitted, referring to the show's creator who convinced her to be a part of the series.

In fact, the A Cinderella Story actress revealed she nearly rejected the part.

"I have done one thing really right in my life," she said. "I’ve picked great friends. If Mike was never successful, and we just did 'White Lotus' as a play in a little theater where everyone paid 10 bucks to see it, it would still be one of the greatest things that ever happened to me. Because it was a killer job that no one else thought I could do."

Coolidge said she has her confidence back after years of blaming herself for her choices, and now she is being chased for new projects after her successful role.

"People that I could never get in the door - all of a sudden they're asking me to be part of their things," she shared.
