Girl Crush: Kat Dennings


My list of girl crushes is getting out of hand. The latest lady I kind of wish I was is the glorious Kat Dennings.

Where to begin? The figure? The face? The wit? The films?

I vaguely remember seeing Kat in an episode of Sex and The City, but it wasn’t love until Nick and Nora’s Infinite Playlist. I really think this film is underrated; great music, and a cute and quirky rom-com plot-line. I loved Kat in it, admiring her acting and that beautiful face. And then there was 2 Broke Girls.

I could write one of these posts about Kat’s character Max Black. I was always going to love a character like Max; she’s independent, sarcastic, and she’s mouthy. The show has it’s problems, but the two central characters are so much fun to watch, and anything with Kat Dennings was sure to rate highly on my list.

Seeing Kat in both Thor movies was exciting too; she deserves to be SO much wider known than she is. Darcy makes me laugh so much, and just goes to show what a brilliant comedic actress Kat really is.

She’s funny in ‘real life’ too; her Twitter account is a highlight in my timeline without fail. She often posts selfies with her cat, live-tweets 2 Broke Girls episodes, and tweets about food a lot.

Let’s be real for a moment; it’s awesome to see a woman with Kat’s shape in Hollywood. Super skinny shapes are so often held up as the ideal, so it’s refreshing to have something different out there. Kat could rival Christina Hendricks in the curves stakes.

Plus, apparently she dated Tom Hiddleston back in 2010. Girl got taste.

So, I was rubbish last week and missed the round-up. Still, onwards and upwards. On Saturday, Tom and I went to see the new Captain America film. I love a good superhero film, and I think The Winter Solider was great. I have a soft spot for Cap, so it was inevitable I’d enjoy it, but it was fun. I can’t wait to see what they’re going to do with Agents of SHIELD now though; big plot twists in the film that will definitely change the TV show a lot!

I baked on Sunday (post to come tomorrow) from a Pinterest recipe. Tom seemed to be pretty pleased about this. Work was fairly quiet last week, with a lot of people going down with some horrible virus. Something got me on Saturday, and Tom was in full nurse mode, making me go back to bed twice, bringing me herbal tea with honey, and rolling me in blankets. The sleep did fix me it seemed; I’m a bit snuffly, but much better now. This week has been a good one, with meetings with new businesses in the building.

I won’t say much about Game of Thrones, but I’m so pleased it’s back on and even more pleased to see the return of Olyvar. Some of you may remember Olyvar as Ser Loras’ paramour in season 3. He popped up again in the first episode, working in Littlefinger’s brothel. Why am I so pleased about this? Well, Olyvar is played by the wonderful Will Tudor, who I had the pleasure of working with a couple of years ago when I was still at The Courtyard. He was the Prince in the pantomime my first Christmas there. Will is a sweetheart, so I’m so pleased he’s doing well, and of course, it’s a lot of fun to tell people you know someone in Game of Thrones!
