Newcomer Beth Behrs plays Caroline Channing, the daughter of a Bernie Madoff-type ponzi schemer who swindled half of New York City, and finds herself living in a riches-to-rags story that is the No. 1 show on television, "2 Broke Girls."

While she might play an Upper East Side princess born with a silver spoon in her mouth, Behrs can hardly relate to her character's upbringing.

"I was broke and living paycheck to paycheck and had two different jobs that I was working seven days a week," she told The Daily. "I was nannying and then I was working at the Geffen Playhouse ... My life was being a broke girl."

While the show itself has drawn criticism for its strange portrayal of New York, odd racial humor, and mean characters, it's the chemistry between Behrs and Kat Dennings, as a sassy waitress named Max, that drives the show.

"Kat is literally my best friend," Behrs told The Daily. "It's just gotten even deeper because I get to see her every day and we even talk on the weekends when we're not at work."

The chemistry between the two women is so apparent that viewers and critics alike are wondering if Max and Caroline are destined to be the next will-they-or-won't-they couple. Behrs wouldn't confirm suspicions, but did admit there are love connections brewing for someone on the show.

As for Behrs' own romantic life, the 25-year-old actress confesses her ultimate Hollywood crush is her favorite director Woody Allen, and is a self-professed "Woody Allen lover."

"People have been saying, 'Are you really his lover?' I didn't mean it to sound like that. Settle down, people." Behrs told The Daily. adding that she would love to work with him some day.
