WORST MOVIE ACCENT EVER

Sean Penn is brilliant in All The King's Men, but the movie is ruined by bad accents from co-stars Jude Law and Kate Winslet. That said, at least they tried to sound like they were from Louisiana. Anthony Hopkins doesn't even bother to try. For us, his is the worst movie accent in film history.

The bloggas at Deputy Dog have their own list of 13 godawful accents that have rolled off the lips of alleged actors. Kevin Costner in Robin Hood. Brad Pitt in The Devil's Own. Julia Roberts in Mary Reilly. Delightfully bad, all.

Your picks? No fair targeting Tony Curtis in Spartacus. Some things are sacred.

How about Kevin Costner's bad New England accent in "13 Days"...

How about Costner in "Robin Hood?" His lame English accent disappears halfway through the movie and he suddenly starts talking like Crash Davis in "Bull Durham"

Isn't it interesting that British actors can pull off an American accent much easier and much better than American actors trying to do an English accent.

I guess it's easier to be Forrest Gump than James Bond.

Sean Connery could voice over Homer Simpson and he would still be the best thing since sliced bread. He puts Kevin Costner's American accent to shame.

Dick Van Dyke's cockney accent in Mary Poppins is considered one of the worst. To me it seemed very working class New Yorkish.
