The sharp-witted, gorgeous, and self-proclaimed promiscuous waitress from 2 Broke Girls, Max Black, is surprisingly similar to Kat Dennings, the actress who portrays her in the show (sans the waitress part, of course). And the behind-the-scenes secret that the 29-year-old star spilled highlighted just that!
Dennings shared with her Twitter fans, “The ‘fake stairs’ bit in this episode was written in after the writers saw me doing it on set to make them laugh…secret tricks REVEALED [sic].” The Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist actress tweeted this in reference to the episode titled, The Maybe Baby, which aired on Thursday night. In it is a scene where Dennings’ character can be seen walking down fake stairs behind a counter, and upon being complimented for it, she blatantly jokes, “It’s the second best thing I fake.”

In a previous interview as well, Dennings has admitted, “When we did the pilot I was like, ‘Oh this character is such a character, it’s nothing like me.’ And then I realized, I am literally her.”
Meanwhile, Dennings is getting out of the usual roles she is cast in by taking on an animated film. The actress, who is currently dating singer Josh Groban, has been roped in to voice the role of a yet to be announced character in The Croods 2. The animated 3D film will also feature Emma Stone, Nicolas Cage, and Ryan Reynolds in lead roles. What’s more, Leslie Mann co-stars in the film as Dennings’ mother. Coincidentally, this won’t be the first time Dennings plays Mann’s daughter, given that the two played the exact same roles in the 2009 movie Shorts.
However, the wait for the adventure comedy movie, which is being produced by DreamWorks and distributed by 20th Century Fox, will be long, as The Croods 2 is slated for a December 22, 2017 release.
