Read more to find out.
Who is Jenny Mollen?
Mollen started her career as an actor and writer. She's been in movies like 'My Best Friend's Girl' and 'Amateur Night' and has even gone on to write short films, such as 'Kidnapping Caitlynn', starring her husband, Biggs and herself. Mollen is a proLIFIC writer, seeing that she wrote a humor column for The Smoking Jacket, a website affiliated with Playboy, as well as an advice column for Playboy between 2012 and 2013.
In 2013, Mollen wrote a book of comedic essays, titled 'I Like You Just The Way I Am'. The book reached #10 on The New York Times Best Seller list for Print & E-Book Nonfiction in 2014. In 2016, Mollen published a follow-up, Live Fast Die Hot, which became New York Times Best Seller at #8 in Humor. Warner Bros acquired the film rights in 2016 and with Anne Hathaway scheduled to star in it and Mollen as the writer and executive producer. There has been no recent update on the project, however.
How did Mollen and Biggs meet?
Although the two of them started in 'My Best Friend's Girl', they hadn't really met each other on set, until a friend set them up on a blind date. But Biggs wasn't off to the best start, seeing that Mollen was not a fan of his 'American Pie' work. As reported by Nicki Swift, Biggs mentioned that she did know who he was though. "She hadn't seen the movies. She knew who I was, but she hadn't seen them. The truth is, it was a turnoff for her. She was like, 'Jason Biggs? He's going to be an annoying little douche.' Well, I'm not that guy. I was charming, and we hit it off." Is what he had to say. But their date went surprisingly well, seeing that Mollen kept an open mind and they two just hit it off instantly. It was a match made in heaven, seeing that they eloped 8 months later and followed it up with a celebration for family and friends in Napa Valley. The couple has a non-filtered sense of humour, seeing that Mollen even got a husband a stripper for his birthday when they were in Vegas - an anecdote she recounted in her first book. Biggs did clear the air on 'The View' about what happened (in case you're wondering, nothing did) and how Mollen was there the entire time, eating chips and laugh. Sounds like a scene right out of 'American Pie' to us.
The couple have two sons together
The couple has two sons together, Sid and Lazlo and by the looks of Mollen Instagram, both boys enjoy keeping their parents on their feet. Turns out, Biggs and Mollen are always up for the challenge. The couple has always been very open out their struggles as parents. In 2019, Mollen accidentally dropped a then 5-year-old Sid, fracturing his skull. Mollen spoke about the incident on her social media while informing fans that he was okay and fairing well while telling fellow parents that they were not alone. It's rather refreshing to see a celebrity get so real with a subject that's so close to home but is not spoken about often.
