Here's How Much Kat Dennings Is Actually Worth

Kat Dennings was born in Bryn Mawr, Pa. in June 1986 as Katherine Litwack, according to Celebrity Net Worth. She was homeschooled and was clearly a high-achiever, since she graduated high school at only 14 years old.

She then moved to Los Angeles to pursue her acting career and scored a guest spot on "Sex and the City" in 2000. Dennings starred on TV shows like "Without a Trace", "CSI," "CSI: NY," and "ER." Fans will also recognize her from the movies "The 40 Year-Old Virgin," "Big Momma's House 2," "The House Bunny," and "Thor."

Her small role on "Sex and the City" was apparently her big break, because show writer Michael Patrick King was responsible for casting her on "2 Broke Girls," which she is arguably best known for. King told GQ in October 2011, "I don't think there's anybody else like her so we basically hunted her down for this. She has a kind of amazing outsider edge. It made everything else fall into place."

Dennings has been acting for quite some time, and fans might be curious about how much money she has in the bank. Keep reading for details on her net worth.

Kat Dennings has amassed quite the fortune

Kat Dennings is worth an estimated $25 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. She's reportedly made the most of her money from starring in "2 Broke Girls," which ran from 2011-2017. In June 2012, the series was sold into syndication for $1.7 million per episode, and TBS paid a reported $235.6 million for the rights.

Dennings earned a reported $150,000 per episode, and since the rights are up for renewal after 10 years, she could earn even more money. Due to the "small number of equity points on the show," she is "entitled to a percent of the show's syndication profits." The lifetime of the show's syndication run will net Dennings a supposed $50 million in royalties.

As mentioned, the actor lived in Pennsylvania before Hollywood, and she described her childhood home as "kind of creepy," according to E! News. "We lived on top of a hill in a place called Bryn Mawr, which now is a little bit more built up, but it's in the woods," she said. "There were deer. There were no other neighbors. There was weather." It's a far cry from the $1.5 million home she bought in Sherman Oaks, Calif. in 2013, per Virtual Globetrotting. She sold it in 2016 for $1.85 million.

Dennings is still taking on projects, like audio work for "The Sandman" in 2020, per Money Inc. She also lends her talents to the Disney+ series "WandaVision" and it's clear she takes her craft seriously.
