Jennifer Coolidge reveals on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon that she slid into Ariana Grande's DM's!
Coolidge has starred in a number of memorable films including American Pie, Legally Blonde and A Cinderella Story. So many stars like Ariana Grande, have impersonated her with her witty one liners and Jennifer admits Ariana helped get her career out of a "dead zone" after they connected through Instagram DM! Coolidge reached out to Grande after she saw her impersonating her on The Tonight Show.
“You should know, it was sort of the beginning of a lot of cool things that happened for me. I was going through a dead zone, not much was going on. Then Ariana did this imitation on your show and you encouraged her," Coolidge recalled. "And then this ball got rolling."
“My friend who is her age, Theresa, she was like, ‘You should DM Ariana.’ I thought it was such a good imitation and I was like, ‘No, she’s got like 260 million followers. Those are robots. The robots answer the DMs! We will never ever get to her,"" Coolidge continued. "And I did it anyway and then this response came back. Next thing you know, I was going to her house getting fit for wardrobe for ‘thank u, next.’ That was all because of Jimmy Fallon.”
Coolidge since starring in Grande's music video has gone on to be cast in HBO's The White Lotus and received an Emmy nomination for her work on the show.
