Dennings was born and raised in the Bryn Mawr area near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Dennings broke into television with an appearance on HBO’s Sex and the City in 2000, in the episode “Hot Child in the City”, playing a 13-year-old who hires Samantha to handle publicity for her bat mitzvah. Actors Sam Rockwell and Josh Hartnett were involved, but the project was not greenlit because of its controversial subject matter of nuclear war. Dennings and other rising stars were featured in the August 2009 issue of Vanity Fair, re-enacting scenes from famous Depression-era films, hers being Sydney Pollack’s They Shoot Horses, Don’t They. Dennings appeared in the superhero film Defendor in 2010, starring Woody Harrelson and Sandra Oh, playing a crack-addicted prostitute.
