HAPPY BIRTHDAY Kat Dennings!

Happy Birthday!

Born Katherine Litwack, Kat Dennings was born on the 13th of June 1986 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

After being homeschooled, Dennings graduated from high school at the age of 14 and moved with her family to Los Angeles, so that she could act full-time.

Dennings began her acting career in an ad for potato chips as well as other commercials before moving onto the small screen.

Kat had her first appearance on a TV show in 2000 with a guest spot on Sex and the City as a 13-year-old who hires Samantha (Kim Cattrall) to handle publicity for her bat mitzvah before going on to star in Raising Dad, Without A Trace, Less Than Perfect, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Clubhouse, CSI: NY, ER, American Dad, Robot Chicken and The Newsroom.

Now here are my Top 2 Kat Dennings roles (if you hadn't guessed by the titles omitted from the above lists!).

2 Broke Girls (2011 - ?)

I was stoked when I first learnt that Kat Dennings was going to be on a TV show and then have it turn out to be this show was awesome.

Her character of Max Black was and still is the reason I watch; the sarcasm and the dry, dark humour is what I love most about the show.

The friendship between Max and Caroline (Beth Behrs) is also another reason to watch.

NICK AND NORAH'S INFINITE PLAYLIST (2008)

I think was the first movie that I was aware of Kat Dennings.

From the first watch, I fell in love with this movie. I am nowhere near a fan of Michael Cera (can't stand him in most cases) but I managed to get past it and actually like him along with all the awesome cast in this movie.

The story is entertaining, the music is fantastic and it's just a movie you can watch over and over!
