Beth Behrs revealed she ‘didn’t even own a pair of heels’ before landing ‘2 Broke Girls’ role

Life can look like art, but for Beth Behrs, it was the other way around. The actress, 35, once recalled working multiple jobs and struggling to make ends meet before getting a role in 2 Broke Girls during a chat on The Drew Barrymore Show.

She said, “I was a broke girl,” she said. “Seven days a week, I was working full-time.”

Behrs stated she didn’t have the right shoes to wear to the CBS sitcom audition, which aired for 6 seasons. “I didn’t even own a pair of high heels,” she said. “I went to my audition for Caroline Channing in cowboy boots.”

Behrs stated she took series creator Michael Patrick King’s advice and went shopping for a new dress for her second audition.

“I had no money because I was a real broke girl,” she revealed. “I went to Nordstrom and kept all of the tags on my clothes and the label on the Steve Madden heels that I got.”

She added, “When Michael hugged me, he’s like, ‘Are there tags all over your clothes?'” she continued. “And I was like, ‘Well, yes, because if I don’t get this job, I have to return all these clothes. I can’t afford them.'”

Of course, Behrs eventually got to play the role of Caroline Channing, a wealthy woman who reluctantly joins the food service industry after experiencing financial difficulty.

2 Broke Girls, which also starred Kat Dennings, aired on CBS from 2011 to 2017 and received several Emmy nominations during that time.
