GOLDEN Globe winner Jennifer Coolidge has taken on a drastically different look for her upcoming movie role.
For the upcoming Netflix comedy film, We Have a Ghost, Jennifer’s, 61, signature blonde tresses were transformed into bouffant brunette curls.
In the soon-to-be released movie, the 61-year-old portrayed The West Bay Medium, a psychic who visits a ghost-inhabited house after it went viral online.
Jennifer’s character’s hair was colored a dark auburn-brown and curled excessively.
While in character, her hair was also pinned up all on one side, which framed her face and made her look completely unrecognizable.
The eccentric outfit that the Legally Blonde alum wore as The West Bay Medium also made Jennifer look extra different too.
Outside of her being known for iconic roles in cult classic films like American Pie, Legally Blonde and A Cinderella Story, Jennifer’s easily identified by her hair and voice.
Her voluminous blonde hair, which sometimes varies in blondness, and her busty bosom are two of the Hollywood star’s most notable features.
Between her blonde-out hair and her uniquely breathy speaking voice, Jennifer is distinguishable from any other actress in her category.
Plus, she’s honest about her life, both her struggles and triumphs, in interviews.

This is partially why she has legions of fans and is very likable.
Speaking to InStyle back in 2022, she revealed she developed a cocaine habit, admitting: “I was going nowhere fast.
“I was born low-energy so there was this drug that was invented for people like me.
“It made me very alive, you know? Unfortunately it’s a terrible drug.”
After a number of A&E dashes, she checked into a rehab facility in Minnesota and was sober by 27.
During that particular time, she was a waitress as she tried to make it in comedy and acting.
Despite hating auditions, which gave her “full-on anxiety attacks,” Jennifer moved to LA to pursue her dream.
Her breakout role was as ‘MILF’ Jeanine Stifler – AKA Stifler’s mom – in American Pie in 1999, followed by Paulette the manicurist in Legally Blonde in 2001, and Hilary Duff’s mom in A Cinderella Story (2004).
But her promising career took a knock when she lost out to Felicity Huffman for the role of Lynette Scavo in Desperate Housewives in 2004.
Jennifer sensationally admitted she benefited from her lucrative American Pie role in more ways than one, telling Variety: “I got a lot of play at being a MILF, and I got a lot of sexual action from American Pie.
“There were so many benefits to doing that movie. I mean, there would be like 200 people that I would have never had slept with.”
While she later admitted that figure was an exaggeration, she added: “It did sort of open up the world to a much broader group of handsome men – and younger men.”
Speaking to Ariana Grande for an Entertainment Weekly interview, Jennifer recalled an encounter with one “particularly young guy”.
“I won’t get into the details,” she said. “But afterwards, the next morning, I told him I needed to get a blow dry. So he was so young, we called his mother to see where I could get a blow dry.
“It was so weird that happened on the phone, it was very clear that we were in the bed together.”
