If a Melania Trump biopic ever happens, Jennifer Coolidge is all in to star.
Speaking with The Guardian, the “White Lotus” actress was asked about fan suggestions on social media that she should play the former First Lady of the United States.
Users were putting forward the idea as far back as 2018.

“What a compliment. Where do I sign?” Coolidge told The Guardian. “Between you and I, though, I’m sure Melania would be bummed.”
Asked if there are any other genres she would like to try out on-screen, the actress said, “I’d love to go back to theatre and do a serious play. And then the Melania biopic, of course.”
Coolidge also said that she “can’t wait” for “Legally Blonde 3” to become a reality. Writer Mindy Kaling is currently working on a script for the long-awaited sequel.
