Biography

Dennings blogged from January 2001 until February 20, 2010, on her website and also transitioned into video blogging on YouTube. Dennings stated to The Jewish Journal of Greater Los Angeles that Judaism "is an important part of my history, but, as a whole, religion is not a part of my life." The article went on to say that she considers herself more ethnically and culturally affiliated than religiously so.

In December 2008, Dennings told BlackBook magazine, "I don't drink and I don't smoke and I don't like being around people who do." In 2013, The New York Times reported that Dennings practices Transcendental Meditation.

From December 2011 to June 2014, Dennings dated fellow actor Nick Zano after meeting on the set of 2 Broke Girls. Since October 2014, she has been dating singer Josh Groban.

One of Caroline's classmates, Thurston Goldberg (Reece Thompson), quickly falls for her after they first meet at a party. Caroline, however, is attracted to her English teacher Mr. Anderson (Josh Lucas), and the two quickly begin an affair. On Halloween, Thurston and his best friends Paul (Landon Liboiron), Charles (Jesse Reid), and Craig (Calum Worthy) spend most of the day getting stoned and inhaling cleaning products which later cause Craig to have a violent seizure during health class. Afterwards, Mr. Anderson cancels his plans with Caroline in order to help the health teacher Ms. Budge (Rachel Blanchard). Mr. Anderson tells Caroline that they should probably go out with other people to avoid looking suspicious, and blows Caroline off on the phone.

They make up and Caroline spends the night after reading Mr. Anderson's draft of his new novel. Thurston continues to try to pursue Caroline, coming to her home with cupcakes. After he is rejected at the door by Caroline's father (Ted Whittall), Thurston's mother (Andie MacDowell) insists on going over to beseech on his behalf, which leads to her and Caroline's father sharing intimate moments over drinks.
