Mike White made a name for himself with his work on the HBO series White Lotus, but no one is a bigger fan of the Revenant alum than Jennifer Coolidge. During her Speech at the Golden Globes, the actress praised White for a long time, bringing the showrunner to tears. Coolidge said that White “gave me hope” and that her mesmerizing role as Tanya improved her life in many ways. Her neighbors now invite her to every neighborhood party, which is contrary to how they used to treat her.
The compliments didn’t end there, as Coolidge used the remainder of her speech to praise the director. “This is for you, Mike White; this is what concerns all of you. If you don’t know Mike White, this is what you should know. He worries about the world, he worries about people, you worry about animals. really one of the greatest people I’ve ever met, he gives me so much pleasure to be myself, you make people want to live longer and I don’t.” She ended the speech with a very candid declaration of love for White.
It’s impossible to imagine The White Lotus without Coolidge as Tanya, but that’s pretty much what fans of the show got. The actress told People that she nearly turned down the role due to the self-doubt that surrounded her body. She, like everyone else, gained weight during the pandemic, which left her unhappy with her appearance. Luckily, a friend convinced her that she couldn’t turn down the part, and now she has an Emmy and a Golden Globe to prove it.
