Kat Dennings is one of those Hollywood stars who always remains on the outskirts of the spotlight despite her fame with roles in blockbuster movies such as Thor and hit TV series such as 2 Broke Girls. She is a self-proclaimed “weirdo” and is happy to explain why she doesn’t prescribe to the typical “celebrity” way of life which in itself has gained her millions of fans. On top of it all she is witty, hilarious, and very talented. Now that 2 Broke Girls is coming to an end, fans can’t wait to see where she ends up next but can only hope it is another big role somewhere. Here are 10 things you never knew about Kat Dennings:

10. Getting Into Acting

When Dennings was still quite young and decided she wanted to act, her parents thought it was “the worst idea ever,” but they still supported their daughter and they all moved to L.A. in order for her to chase her dream. While Kat Dennings’ family may not have been thrilled when she decided she wanted to pursue acting as a career, but it didn’t take long for her big break. At only 14-years old, she landed a significant role in an episode of Sex and the City in which she played a rich Jewish girl who hires Kim Cattrall’s character to organise her million dollar bat mitzvah. Landing the role was the reason her family broke down and finally got cable, just so they could watch it. The most surprising thing of all about Dennings’ success is that she never took acting classes. “I took one acting class when I first started acting when I was 10. The guy who owned the school told me I would never be an actress and I should stop immediately. I deduced that he didn’t know what he was talking about and left.”

9. Name Change

Like many actors and actress Kat Dennings does not go by her given name and instead adopted a stage name when she began her career. She was born Katherine Victoria Litwack, but when she decided to be an actress, she chose to change her name because as she says her entire name is “a little hideous.” She opted for Dennings because it is much more marketable for an actress.
