Taking to her recently opened TikTok page, Coolidge had fans glued to their phone screen after posting a video of herself conversing with the world and announcing her presence on the widely watched entertainment platform. 

The blonde-haired actress looked stunning as her long hair was styled in a side part, allowing her curly waves to cascade down her shoulders. Keeping her looks simple, she had on light makeup and wore nude lip gloss on her lips. 

Coolidge looked stylish, donning a black outfit that revealed a fair amount of her cleavage. She adorned her fit by wearing gold hoop earrings.

The "Legally Blonde" actress looked excited in the video and addressed her fans, saying, "Hiiiii… This is my first TikTok and I was trying to think of something cool to do. And I think errrm I think I'm just going to do a poem that I like."

Bracing herself for her stellar performance, she proceeded to recite her poem and added theatrics, saying, "Don't be fooled by the rocks that I got. I'm still Jenny, Jenny, Jenny from the block." Her recital happens to be part of the wordings from Jennifer Lopez's song, "Jenny From The Block."

So, it came as no surprise when she tilted the camera to reveal Lopez seated right beside her. The gorgeous-looking actress who had the camera in her face had a bewildered look on her face initially before revealing that she liked Coolidge's made-up poem.

Commenting on the clip, fans had a lot to write about. TikTok itself excitedly announced, "MOTHER HAS ARRIVED," while a fan observed, writing, "Only Jennifer Coolidge would be able to master TikTok on her first TikTok ?❤️." 

Another fan admitted, writing, "Not since Leslie Jordan have I been so excited to see someone join TikTok." A third wrote, "YESSS QUEEN! Start working on that Grammy! We all know you deserve to EGOT!?"

Coolidge And Lopez Shutdown The Afterparty Premiere Of Their Upcoming Movie 'Shotgun Wedding'

The two actresses who bear the same first name seem to share a beautiful chemistry both on and off the TV screen, as would be seen in their upcoming movie, "Shotgun Wedding." Per reports, Lopez and Coolidge were spotted dancing and laughing on Instagram live, which the two actresses were initially unaware about.

Taking a hold of the situation, Lopez continued with the live stream and said, "We're here at the 'Shotgun Wedding' premiere. It was so amazing. We had such a great time." Wrapping her arms around her co-star Coolidge who held a cocktail, she continued with her live stream and gushed about the older actress, saying, "This woman was fantastic."

In the eye-opening clip, Coolidge looked chic in a black dress with lace detailing, while the "On The Floor" singer looked ravishing dressed in a frilly frock. Captioning the video, she wrote, "Happy JENNUARY! Live at the @shotgunweddingmovie after party."

What Critics Say About 'Shotgun Wedding' Movie

Fans are anxious to watch Lopez and Coolidge perform their on-screen magic in their soon-to-be-released movie, "Shotgun Wedding," a romantic action comedy set to be aired on January 27. However, early reviews aren't completely positive.

Film critic Guy Lodge in an article for Variety shared that the movie focused more on separating rich from rich initially but soon lost the plot. 

He described the movie as "a curious viewing experience," adding, "an ostensibly easy-breezy J.Lo vehicle that's only a hair more pleasant to watch than Michel Franco's nihilistic both-sidesy hostage thriller "New Order."

Revealing his displeasure about the change in the cast of the male lead role, Lodge lamented, "Indeed, it could barely be more disconcerting if originally cast leading man Armie Hammer had stayed the course." He disclosed he was not pleased with the chemistry between the new lead actor, Josh Duhamel, and his onscreen fiancée, Lopez.

The movie in its whole entirety was likened to having a trivial plot and tagged a "capably mediocre" movie.
