Kat Dennings’ Bio
Kat Dennings was born as Katherine Litwack on the 13th of June 1986. Her birthplace is Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania where her mother Ellen Judith Litwack was a speech therapist and poet and her father who is named Gerald J. Litwack was a college professor and a molecular pharmacologist. She has four siblings and the family is Jewish. From a young age, Kat Dennings was homeschooled, only attending a traditional school called Friends’ Central School for half a day. She graduated high school early when she was 14 years old and her family moved to Los Angeles so that she could focus fully on acting. It was then that she picked “Dennings” as her professional name. Even before she moved to LA, she had started a career in commercials at the age of 10.
She got her first acting job in an ad for potato chips but her first actual professional debut was in the year 2000 on HBO’s Sex and the City where she turned up in the episode “Hot Child in the City” playing the part of a 13-year-old obnoxious little girl. After that, she starred on the WB sitcom Raising Dad (2001 – 2002) which did not last very long. She then showed up in Disney’s The Scream Team where she acted the part of a teenager who stumbles into some ghosts. She has since appeared in other more prominent films such as Big Momma’s House 2 (2006), Thor (2011) and Thor: The Dark World (2013).
In 2011, Kat Dennings was cast in the CBS sitcom that was written and produced by Michael Patrick King and Whitney Cummings called Two Broke Girls. She played one of a pair of girls who are grossly employed and are constantly finding ways to raise money and rack up a reasonable account balance. The show was canceled after six seasons on the 12th of May 2017.
Kat Dennings is probably one of the only actresses in a while who have dedicated time to blogging and writing herself into a digital space. She blogged consistently from 2001 till 2010 on her own website. She also began video blogging on YouTube all of which must have been ways to stay connected to her audience. She is not an especially religious person although she has claimed to The Jewish Journal of Greater Los Angeles that Judaism forms a rather important part of her history but that she does not consider religion as a whole as a big part of her life. Kat Dennings instead claims to be connected more culturally and ethnically.
