By 2016, Kat Dennings and Josh Groban had split in what a source described to E! News as being “a mutual breakup” and that the two remained friends. A year later and Dennings would experience a second major life change when “2 Broke Girls” was cancelled after six seasons (via Deadline). On Twitter, the actor shared the devastating news in an aptly shared statement written with her friend and co-star Beth Behrs.
As well as thanking fans for “watching and enjoying” the show, the statement ends on the sweet note of appreciating “all the things this experience has given us,” with them writing, “the most treasured is our lifelong friendship.” Understandably, Dennings’ sense of style looked a little limp during this time, with her usual flair and swagger absent from her red carpet looks — but she’d soon rediscover it.
In the midst of so much turmoil, Dennings did something that many people do during times of extreme change: she got bangs. Speaking to Yahoo! News, she explained her new cut had been coming “for like a decade” and how it changed her mindset. “I feel slightly perkier,” she said, “like it gave me a new lease on life” — her playful Instagram selfie celebrating her new look proved as much. Clearly, some changes could be positive, and as she joined the voice cast of irreverent Netflix comedy “Big Mouth,” she’d find even more positive career changes were coming.
