Ghastly fake accents - complain here!

· Ben Affleck in Shakespeare In Love.

Horrible horrible cringeworthy horrible accent! Best viewed with sound off.

· Anything Björk says.

We all know that she speaks perfect English, so why pretend? It's not cute, you little troll!

Adam: Nine. If I didn't have my spoons, I'd go insane.
Bono: Can I see it?
*adam gives bono the spoon, bono throws it away*
Adam: My spoon!

This is exactly why I wanted to respond to this thread! Ever notice that in any movie Kevin Costner is in.... he sounds like he's from Chicago??? It drives me nuts. I cant think of anything else in particular - but it's VERY rare that you hear a good irish brogue off an actor/actress - just watch Far and Away with Tom Cruise

ok as soon as i saw thie title i was going to say Costner in Robin Hood as it has driven me nuts for so long!!!

I still get annoyed by it and I shall tell you why. Its the ARROGANCE of a Hollywood actor thinking he can get away with playing such a historical figure as Robin Hood with an American accent.

arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

I would say another..but alas, i hold my tongue
Irish Cowgirls is all I shall say
And u all fell for it!!!


Oh and anyone trying to do Australian accents. Any future casting directors out there, a word of advice when choosing non Australian actors to play Australians....WE'RE NOT SOUTH AFRICAN!!!!!!

Brit actors that try to pull off an "American" accent - why do they have to all sound like they're from Bahston or ChiCAHgo or something?

Any non-Russian actor doing a "Russian" accent: bleh, bleh, bleh!

Kevin Costner is a classic case! Another big-time offender is Brad Pitt with his pitiful attempts at Austrian accent in "Seven Years in Tibet" and Irish in "Devil's Own". And his acting sucked, too.
