Kat Dennings Has Found a Home with the ‘Outlander’ Knitting Community

Hello, Kat. Hi, it’s me with my glasses. I know. Are these new glasses? They are new. Do you like them? I do. They’re very cool. Really? Yeah. Thank you. Portia has these– they’re very
in style, these kind of large, kind of ’80s-type glasses now. She’s got some. I feel like they make like
my other features look small and like petite. Mm-hmm. They don’t, right? Yeah. Well then. That’s why the clowns wear those
big ones, because their feet look smaller. I saw a picture of you
with your kitty cat. Was it your cat? It’s always my cat, what
we’re talking about? It’s a picture. Oh, no. Look how sad she is. Yeah. Well, she doesn’t look sad. She looks a little
like where am I? Alarmed. Yeah. OK, here’s the deal. So this was for People
Magazine, and they were doing a thing of like
people with their cats. And it sounded fine on paper. [LAUGHTER] It’s not fine. No? No. And you bring it somewhere? Did you bring it? No. So the deal was, I was
like, I will do this because it’d be nice to have
a professional photo of me and Millie, because
I mean, forget it. Cats don’t like that stuff. Right. They come in with a huge
backdrop with metal poles, and lights, and all this stuff,
and I was fully a stage mother. Like I can’t. She can’t. I don’t think this
is a good idea. I start freaking out. So I’m like, all right,
I’m going to go get her. I’m going to bring her in. You’re going to get 12 seconds. They got two seconds. [LAUGHTER] Before she started climbing on
my back and ran under the bed, and I made everyone
get out of my house. And I lay on the floor
giving her treats until she would come out, and then, ugh. Yeah, it was
traumatizing, I’m sure. It was traumatizing
for both of us. Because you wanted to
be in People Magazine. I’m a trash person. [LAUGHTER] I’m trash, what could I say? But look at that
cute little thing! Yeah. No, that’s a cute cat. That’s a cute kitty. And are you still knitting? Of course. It’s making you sound
weird right now. You have a cat,
and that you knit. But those two things
really together– I should have spaced them out. Honestly, it’s all
I have in the world. OK, a cat and knitting. Yeah. Yes, I’m knitting. I’m knitting. I had a little downtime because
I finished the last show, and I was like, you know what? I got to just watch a show that
people like that I’ve missed, because we don’t have the time. Maybe you have time sometimes. I don’t know. It’s my homework. I have to watch shows. Right, true. Well, I watched a
little bit of Outlander, and I was so struck by
the knitting on the show. [LAUGHTER] No, no. I’m telling you right now, this
woman, this beautiful actress, I think her name
is Caitriona Balfe? I’m so sorry if I’m
saying that wrong. She’s wearing this cowl. It’s called a cowl. It’s like a brown scarfy– yes, there it is. Look at that. Gorgeous. So I paused it. I took photos, and I was like,
I’m going to make this cowl. And I googled it, and it
turns out I’m not alone. Everyone else googled it, too? Outlander knits is
like a whole community. Oh, wow. Yep. Wow. How many people here are
part of that community? No one. Hey! [LAUGHTER] No one. Me! All right. And look who did it. Me! You did it! Oh wow. [APPLAUSE] Congratulations. Thank you. Congratulations. So the community is maybe
not called a community. It’s you and maybe
a couple of people. It doesn’t matter how many. No, it doesn’t. You’re right, you’re right. Let’s talk about Dollface. OK, All right, tell everybody
what that is about. It’s about a girl
who gets dumped from her five-year relationship
like out of nowhere. She’s not expecting
it, and she realizes that she’s kind of lost
her close group of friends. Happens. We fall in love. We just drop everything
and orbit that person, and that happened the
first five minutes. So it’s kind of a romantic
comedy for friends. Mm-hmm. It’s doing very well. People love it. Who knows? I hope so. Yeah, well I’m
telling you, I know. Good. People love it. It’s great. I love it. I hope so. All right, it’s on Hulu now. Yes. I’m so bad at everything. It’s on Hulu now. You can stream all the episodes. Yes. All of them at once. And it’s called Dollface Sure is. Called Dollface. Check it out. And there will be a
community of people– Dollface kints next!
