Jennifer Coolidge Once Pretended To Be Her Own Twin So She Could Date Two Men At Once

When in Hawaii, I guess!

If you've ever watched a comedy made in the '00s, the likelihood is you'll recognize Jennifer Coolidge, star of Legally Blonde, A Cinderella Story, and American Pie.

And if you're hesitant to accept Jennifer Coolidge's comedy icon status, allow this story she told during a recent appearance on the Kelly Clarkson Show to convince you.


When asked about her virtual interview setup, Jennifer revealed she's currently in Hawaii working on a project, which reminded her of some of the "crazy experiences" she'd had during vacations there.

"Quite a few years back, I did come to Hawaii, and — when you come and you're on vacation alone, you can kind of create anything you want," she explained, and it's safe to say my interest was piqued.


It turns out Jennifer Coolidge once pretended to be her own identical twin so she could date two men at the same time.


She explained that many years ago, while vacationing in Hawaii alone, she met two guys — who were best friends — and liked them both, so told them she was a twin.


"I ended up meeting these two guys that were best friends, and I liked them both, and so I told them that I had an identical twin," Jennifer said.

"I dated both guys," she went on. "For two weeks."

Reflecting on the experience, Jennifer said she likely "wouldn't have the guts" to do it now, but that "at the time it was a really great decision."

"You know, when you're younger, you just get away with anything," she concluded.

Icon behavior, I think you'll agree.
