Can even do a Batman voice with an American accent. That's something.
When you see the " Emma " movie version with Kate Beckinsale ( in her born accent ) and the " Emma " movie version with Gwyneth Paltrow,you really see the difference between a bad fake brit accent ( Gwyneth Paltrow sucks in her brit accent ) and a real brit. But this British actress doesn't sound fake on the other hand when she's doing an American accent.
For someone who's got a strong british accent like her ( I love to hear her brit accent ) she's doing a great job to sound like an American.
She nails it. Jim Sturgess kind of lost it a little bit in 21, in my opinion, but Kate rocked hers in Click. - ilovekelly75
