Watch: Jennifer Coolidge's Dream Marvel Superpower Is WHAT?!

Jennifer Coolidge undoubtedly deserves her own throne—but if she had it her way, it'd be a porcelain throne.

After telling E! News she'd be down to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the White Lotus star revealed what her ideal superpower would be if she starred in one of the blockbusters.

"I would have a toilet in my house that had very high power underneath it," she exclusively told E! News Chief Correspondent Keltie Knight at the 2023 SAG Awards. "And when anyone came to sit on it, they got shot into the universe."

But in this universe, Jennifer already has a superpower... her acting chops, which led to her walking away with a SAG award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series for White Lotus.

It's a moment the 61-year-old doesn't take for granted.

"I want you all to know that I am just so grateful, so grateful," Jennifer said after accepting her first SAG trophy in front of her peers on Feb. 26. "You know, you can give money to friends and do nice things for them—and people love money—and I do whatever I can when your friends are broke."

Giving a nod to the HBO show's creator, she added, "The best gift you can give someone is to change someone's perspective for the better and view life in a different way. And that's what Mike White did for me."

And keeping in true Jennifer fashion, the American Pie actress shared a sweet childhood story that fueled her desire to star on the big screen. After her dad pulled her out of her first grade class, they got in the car and he told her, "I'm never going to tell a lie again. But we're going somewhere really cool."


Where did their road trip take them? A Charlie Chaplin film festival.

"I swear to god that seeing Charlie Chaplin for the first time, and having that experience, it's my love of film," she concluded. "It's my love of actors. All that came from my first grade."

Jennifer was up for the award against The Crown's Elizabeth Debicki, Ozark's Julia Garner and Laura Linney and Euphoria's Zendaya.
