Kat Dennings Biography
We all know her as Kat Dennings, but actually, The 40-Year-Old Virgin star was born on June 13, 1986, in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, as Katherine Litwack. She was raised in Bryn Mawr as the youngest of a family of five by her parents, Ellen Judith Litwack, a poet and speech therapist, and Gerald J. Litwack.
She described herself as socially odd and only went to Friends Central for half a day, which she hated, and received the rest of her education at home. By the time she was 14 years old, the actress had already completed her high school education.
Since her mother was a poet in the creative world, Kat Dennings decided to become an actress at a very young age and she started to appear in a commercial when she was just 10 years old. As soon as she finished her training, her family moved to Los Angeles to give her the opportunity to continue her acting career. Although her parents did not fully support her acting career, she said that this was the worst idea for her.
After moving to LA she decided to change her name from Katherine Litwack to Kat Dennings because she didn’t want to use her family name and wanted to be sure when exactly people really knew her.
She received her first professional role as an actress in 2000 when she was given a role in Sex and the City, where she appeared in the episode The Hot Child in the City.
