An adoring, celebratory tribute to the one, the only, Jennifer Coolidge, that all-at-once captures her unique personality, engaging life story, smart and sassy life lessons, and special brand of humor that's quickly made JC one of America's most beloved stars and pop culture icons.

Whether we remember Jennifer Coolidge as the hilariously ditzy manicurist Paulette Bonafonté in Legally Blonde, as the seductress Stifler’s Mom from American Pie, or as the totally unaware and fragile basket case Tanya McQuoid in The White Lotus, these scene-stealing performances have shown her many dimensions as a comic actor and her craft is palpable—Jennifer has finally reached the pop culture stardom she so rightly deserves. 

To say the comedy legend is having a comeback would be an understatement. Jennifer has been well known to her fans for decades since her performances in American Pie, Legally Blonde, and numerous appearances in Christopher Guest mockumentaries (Best in Show, A Mighty Wind), but it was her recent roles in The White Lotus and The Watcher that made people stand up and take notice of this hilarious actor and all-around amazing talent. Her fearless and entertaining characters have earned her an Emmy, a Golden Globe, and a Critics' Choice Award, and she has been lovingly parodied by Chloe Fineman in two SNL sketches.

I Heart Jennifer Coolidge is a loving tribute to an incredible icon that recounts Jennifer’s engaging life story, her numerous roles, guest star appearances, small screen success stories, and, of course, sage wisdom and sassy advice we can all learn from this iconic actor. It’s a lively, illustrated love letter to JC that’s part biography, part words of wisdom, part life lessons, that highlights this national treasure with confidence, personality, and all the humor.
