You know you’ve tried it. In fact, you probably tried it more after a few good beers during a drinking binge in college. And no, I’m not talking about that. Instead, I’m talking about British accents.
But when it comes to celebrity parents, they of course can do the British accents with ease. Take Gwyneth Paltrow. She won an Oscar for doing one in “Shakespeare In Love,” married a Brit, moved across the pond and probably knows how to pronounce Goop in five different regional British accents by now. That is what you call talent, people.
As for myself, I’ve been trying my hand at a Scottish accent (I know, different, don’t lecture me) as we’ve been listening to a Brave read-along CD that we’ve put in our mini-van. And for some reason each time I saw, “I am Merida, first born descendent of DunBroch, and I’ll be shooting for my own hand,” my Scottish accent ends up sounding a little Indian. And I haven’t a clue as to why.
But one American that is not on this list (and really should be) is my 4-year-old daughter. After watching Cars 2 endless times since it came out on DVD late last year, she’s really mastered her Holly Shiftwell accent each time she yells, Stop it, Mater!” It’s pretty spot on if you ask me.
