The 24-year-old actress began her career at an early age, appearing on an episode of Sex And The City and starring alongside Bob Saget in Raising Dad while she was a teenager.
In an interview with Complex Magazine, Dennings expressed her belief that retaining humility is key to dealing with success.
"People make the mistake of drinking the Kool-Aid, believing your own hype, letting people tell you you're this or you're that or you're too this," the Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist actress remarked.
Dennings went on state that she tries to advise young actors and actresses to focus on their craft rather than attaining celebrity.
She continued: "Just listen to yourself and take the roles that challenge you and try to do a good job. If you do that, if you're honest about things, you can't get too far astray. If it's about the work for you, then you're gonna go far. If it's about the glitz and anything else, forget it - you're in it for the wrong reasons."
Dennings recently vowed that fans will "completely believe" her Thor co-star Chris Hemsworth is a superhero.
