Jennifer Coolidge Explains Why She Credits Ariana Grande for Revitalizing Her Career

During the interview, Jimmy asked Jennifer for her thoughts on the impression that Ariana did of her when she was on his show years ago.

“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. And then this ball got rolling,” Jennifer said.

She added, “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.’ 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.”

FYI: Jennifer is wearing a Dolce&Gabbana dress.
