Harvard University’s Hasty Pudding Theatricals has named Jennifer Coolidge as its Woman of the Year.

The beloved aunt impressed everyone by wearing an animal print coat and a fluffy pink hat for some extra flair. Reportedly, the actor became emotional at one point and shared how she wished her father could have been present to witness the event. She stated that she was completely amazed by the experience and had never anticipated it. According to her, it surpassed any film or TV show she had ever worked on. Jennifer Coolidge also shared how her father attended the institution, as did his brothers, so it held great significance to her.

According to producer Sarah Mann, it was a great honor to recognize Jennifer Coolidge as the Woman of the Year, especially after her recent accomplishments with White Lotus. Mann stated that Coolidge’s new Golden Globe would complement the Pudding Pot award they were giving her. Mann also promised they would not take Coolidge away to a palazzo in Palermo.

Legally Blonde 3 Will Release in 2023

The celebrations come right after Reece Witherspoon revealed that Jennifer Coolidge was returning as nail technician Paulette Bonafonté in the highly anticipated Legally Blonde 3. In the interview, Witherspoon shared that there could be no Legally Blonde 3 without Coolidge. The original film was released in 2001 and showed the adventures of Elle Woods, played by Witherspoon, a sorority girl who enrolled in Harvard Law School to follow her boyfriend, who had just broken up with her.

It seems the third installment of Legally Blonde will provide an update on the life of the dog-loving, pink enthusiast and her flourishing career as a lawyer. The confirmation for Legally Blonde 3 was made in 2018, and it was initially scheduled to be released on Valentine’s Day in 2020. However, due to complications in production at the time, it faced delays, and its release date was shifted to May 2020 and then May 2022. Legally Blonde 3 will finally come out sometime this year.

In recent years, flying suits based on the so-called Iron Man design have become something normal. In the UK, even the ambulance service has tested such equipment for getting to difficult spots. It seems there are a lot of jobs that flying a jet pack could make easier.

Gravity’s New Jet Pack Model

The latest news in the jet pack world involved a video of an actual jet pack that also looked the way those were first envisioned – with a set of jets on the back in addition to the two stabilizers controlled by each arm. While there is limited information on the inner workings of the jet pack itself, people know that it was created by Gravity Industries and is still being developed. This company has been providing the training and suits for this latest video and many before it.

The Gravity Founder Is a Test Pilot

What’s made this recent flight interesting is that while most Gravity suits use the backpack spot for fuel to power the two powerful engines on the arms and propel the wearer into the air, this time, a series of engines were also introduced onto the back. The flight of the pilot does look effortless and fun but it’s not at all an easy task. The arm jets mean all the body weight is resting on the strength of the upper body. This means that the person who’s about to use the jet suit should be physically prepared before going through the air at 55 miles per hour.

Whether the new iteration of the suit will be a permanent one is not yet clear. This is the case because while Browning is usually the one who flies the jet pack in such videos, Gravity also makes jet suits that are custom fitted to order. Of course, the company also provides training for anyone who wants to have their own jet pack. Still, the price of one is about $430,000.
