CATEGORIES Movie News, Hot Topic


As if 'One Day' flopping at the box office isn't bad enough, now star Anne Hathaway, who goes British in the film, has just been named to Life magazine's list of "The Worst Accents in Movie History."

Her character Emma is supposed to hail from Leeds, so Hathaway should sound something like actors who are actually from there, like 'Tron: Legacy's James Frain or John Simm from 'Life on Mars.' According to Life, her "research" was watching the World Cup and hanging out in pubs. No wonder that accent is all over the map!

She's now among cinema's most monumentally awful British accents, like Kevin Costner in 'Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves,' Keanu Reeves in 'Bram Stoker's Dracula' and one of the worst offenders ever: Dick Van Dyke as a cockney chimney sweep in 'Mary Poppins.'

Was Anne that bad? See a clip after the jump and judge for yourself.
