She helped coin the word MILF when she played Stifler & # 39; s mother in American Pie before portraying a ditzy nail technician in Legally Blonde.
And Jennifer Coolidge revived her character on Monday to teach This Morning host Ruth Langsford the iconic 1999 & # 39; bend and snap & # 39; movement from cult classic Reese Witherspoon.
The actress, 57, was asked by Ruth, 59, to give a demonstration of the routine that her legally blonde character Paulette used to seduce men, leaving the TV presenter in a giggle.
Bend and nod! Jennifer Coolidge revived her Legally Blonde character on Monday to teach This Morning host Ruth Langsford the iconic 1999 & # 39; bend and snap & # 39; movement of the cult classic from 1999
Ruth said to her: "I could not have you here today without asking you, can you teach me that?"
& # 39; Yes, & # 39; said Jennifer. & # 39; As long as there is no camera behind it. You know what? What does it matter if someone sees it? & # 39;
Apparently amazed by the bow and fracture, Ruth explained it to husband Eamonn Holmes, 59, to him: & # 39; In the film you get the attention of a man. & # 39;
The pair stood up to execute the challenging move while Jennifer joked: & # 39; I hope you can bend & # 39 ;.

The Hollywood actress then performed the iconic movement, bent over to collect a piece of paper from the floor before she jumped up and put her hands on her waist.
But when it was Ruth's turn, she did not fully control it and said to Jennifer: & # 39; It is not as good as yours. But you know, you've done it much longer than me. & # 39;
Jennifer replied: & # 39; It never really worked for me, it never got anyone. & # 39;
The actress appeared on the show to discuss that it was 20 years since she got her big break as & # 39; Stifler & # 39; s mother & # 39; on American Pie.

Speaking of her major breakthrough, she said: & # 39; The only thing that I really did was Seinfeld, I played Jerry & # 39; s girlfriend.
& # 39; So I have to say that doors like that opened the door to many other jobs.
& # 39; Thank goodness for that movie, because I don't know what it would have been like if it hadn't happened. And it was such a coincidence, it was a very small part. & # 39;
Jennifer also admitted that none of the actors in the film knew how successful it would be.

She said: & # 39; None of us really knew it. Seann William Scott who played Stifler, my son, I think he lived in his car.
& # 39; Everyone was more or less from a very humble beginning and it was the nicest group of people, but nobody had any idea that the movie would be the way it was until the executives called us all and said they wanted to take us to the supper.
& # 39; We went to this little Mexican restaurant, but I remember sitting there and saying: & # 39; I have never been invited by a supervisor to dinner & # 39; but perhaps it was a sign that it tested well. & # 39;
She discussed whether people still recognize her because of the film and said: & they do! You cannot really determine when someone sees a movie.

& # 39; They saw it for the first time last week, it is just that you are on a plane and people think it has died for 20 years, these things play everywhere. NOW TV asked me to celebrate the 20th anniversary. & # 39;
The actress was recently asked to appear in Ariana Grande & # 39; s Thank You Next music video, which paid homage to Legally Blonde.
Speaking of the video, Jennifer said: & # 39; She was so amazing. She was so friendly and that was really fun to film, I must say.
& # 39; It was a very unexpected phone call. That was so much fun. & # 39;
