Jennifer Coolidge thanks SNL star Chloe Fineman for her ‘exceptionally brilliant impression’

Emmy winner Jennifer Coolidge was very impressed with Saturday Night Live star Chloe Fineman for doing a ‘hilarious imitation’ of her on a holiday sketch in the most recent episode.

In ‘Jennifer Coolidge Is Impressed by Christmas Stuff’ – the 34-year-old NoCal native marveled at stockings, lights, carols, menorahs, and egg nog while delivering bizarre non-sequiturs.

‘Wow! A massive thanks to Saturday Night Live! And to the exceptionally brilliant impressionist @ChloeIsCrazy with your hilarious imitation!’ the Boston-born 61-year-old – who boasts 2.1M social media followers – gushed on Sunday.

Also, congratulations to the new cast members! I know how hard it is to get on that show, I tried my a** off to be one but you actually made it! What a feat! Happy holidays to you all!’

Indeed, Jennifer and her then-boyfriend Chris Kattan were flown into New York City for an audition on the long-running NBC sketch show back in 1995, and he got the gig – not her.

‘I was the one who got rejected,’ Coolidge – who’d make an excellent SNL host – recalled to Los Angeles Magazine in 2004.

‘I was spared a bullet. I think of all the demons and playing politics. The good thing was I might have become anorexic. But I probably would have self-destructed on SNL.’

'Tastes like I'm drinking Santa c**!'  The 34-year-old NoCal native marveled at stockings, lights, carols, menorahs, and egg nog while delivering bizarre non-sequiturs

Chloe quickly saw The White Lotus star’s Instagram post and commented: ‘Happy holidays! Thank you for being such a gift to us all.’

Jennifer also received glowing comments from Ryan Murphy Productions, her Watcher castmate Naomi Watts, CNN This Morning co-anchor Don Lemon, her 2 Broke Girls co-star Beth Behrs, and RuPaul’s Drag Race #2 winner Raja Gemini.

However, many fans in the comments argued that pop star Ariana Grande’s impersonation of Coolidge was far better, having spent a lot of time together on the set of her Thank U, Next music video in 2018.

The two-time Golden Globe nominee will most likely reprise her role as Tanya McQuoid in the third season of The White Lotus, which was renewed by HBO last month.
