I'm completely Americanized - I have an American accent, an American wife - but a residue of me is foreign.

Dinesh D'Souza, author

In Paris, one is always reminded of being a foreigner. If you park your car wrong, it is not the fact that it's on the sidewalk that matters, but the fact that you speak with an accent.

Roman Polanski, director

Work on the accent, it will enliven the whole.

Pierre Bonnard, artist

The odd thing is if you asked me to do the accent now I would find it very difficult unless I was also playing that part, because I associate it so much with entering into the role and stepping into someone else's shoes.

Emily Mortimer, actress

The only actress they didn't test was Garbo. Must have been her accent.

Judy Holliday, actress

I like when a girl knows what she looks like and dresses to accentuate those features.

Zac Efron, actor

I shouldn't be saying this - high treason, really - but I sometimes wonder if Americans aren't fooled by our accent into detecting brilliance that may not really be there.

Stephen Fry, comedian

The first thing I have to do to erase my French accent is think that it is actually possible, whereas for the moment, I think it's not. I have a lot of work.

Marion Cotillard, actress

'Batman' took 10 months to film, and by the time I stopped working on it, it took a long time before my English accent came out again. I was actually having to try for it.

Christian Bale, actor

I keep forgetting I'm speaking in an American accent sometimes. The dangerous thing is that you end up forgetting what your real accent is after a while! It's really strange; I've never done a job in an American accent before.

Robert Pattinson, actor

I'm still a member of the Empire! Although I sometimes feel like an American with a British accent - you get contaminated after so long.

Gary Oldman, actor

I'll never forget when we played Shepherd's Bush in London. We played 'I Run To You', and we put the mic out for the last chorus, and you could hear them singing the chorus with the beautiful accent that they have.

Hillary Scott, musician

I speak English without an accent, and I speak Spanish without an accent. I really do have the best of both worlds.

Eva Mendes, actress

We all had to learn Southern accents. It wasn't a big research show. With the 'Wounded Knee' project, I locked myself in my apartment with history books so I would know what we're talking about.

Anna Paquin, actress

David Fincher is one of the best directors I know, so I'm really curious to see it. Really curious, and I want to hear Daniel have the Swedish accent.

Michael Nyqvist, actor

I like to mumble when I act, 'cause I think it's more realistic. For some reason, the impediment has given me the accent of a Mexican gangster.

David Arquette, actor

It has to be a very specific role for me because of my accent. I can't complain; I've been working since I got to LA. But it is hard. I have no training as an actress so I try whatever I do like school, because I'm learning.

Sofia Vergara, model

I do believe that there are African Americans who have thick accents. My mom has a thick accent; my relatives have thick accents. But sometimes you have to adjust when you go into the world of film, TV, theatre, in order to make it accessible to people.

Viola Davis, actress

I can hardly understand the Australian accent.

Joey Santiago, musician

If you're in America a lot, it's easy to get into playing American. All of it, the sounds, the energies, all very different. But it's really hard to do the accent. I tend to try and stay in it all day, which is the only way I can manage it.

Emily Blunt, actress

It's not a deliberate thing. It's not like I was rejecting the UK, which is what the papers said. It's just that when you spend a lot of time in your formative years around an accent, you're going to pick it up. I had been living in LA for a bit and that's what happened.

Joss Stone, musician

The tricky thing becomes: Do you know yourself well enough to then portray that on screen? And for me, I find that really hard. I'd rather hide behind accents and funny walks.

Joel Edgerton, actor

Callan McAuliffe, actor

It can get a bit boring working on accents.

Kelly Macdonald, actress

I live in L.A. so I worry my kids aren't that connected to Britain, I suppose I don't want them to become American kids. We try to get back three or four times a year. When they go to school they speak with a British-American accent but when they come home to us they go back to their British accent.

Kevin McKidd, actor

I actually love working with accents. I don't know, something about it unlocks something in me. It makes me concentrate on getting into character a little more, helps me find a focus.

Kevin McKidd, actor

If a great part comes up and the guy's meant to have an Eastern European accent, great; but if it's a bad part I won't take it.

Goran Visnjic, actor

I will buy any creme, cosmetic, or elixir from a woman with a European accent.

Erma Bombeck, humorist

Only very rarely are foreigners or first-generation immigrants allowed to be nice people in American films. Those with an accent are bad guys.

Max von Sydow, actor

Usually, certainly British singers, adopt an American accent when they sing and I think that usually people are thinking of somebody else, but I just think of very specific people.

Jane Horrocks, actress

To illustrate what I mean, an apt dancer may be in thorough unison with the others in that particular group, and at the same time reveal a difference in dancing temperament, rhythm or technique; she may phrase, accentuate or actually interpret differently.

Florenz Ziegfeld, producer

My accent remained terrible. It was very hard for me to initiate any conversation with someone I didn't know.

Lawrence Welk, musician

If my accent betrayed my foreign birth, it also stamped me as an enemy, in the imagination of the producers.

Bela Lugosi, actor

Tennessee Williams was a gifted talker with a beautiful accent and we had lots of things in common.

Gloria Swanson, actress

Everyone seemed to be doing well except me and my career. And my accent was no helping me any.

Desi Arnaz, actor

Robert Carlyle, director

I personally am not conscious of my accent.

Jared Diamond, author

I took acting and elocution lessons, to get rid of my Sicilian accent.

Viola Davis, actress

I love accents.

Claire Forlani, actress

My own dreams fortunately came true in this great state. I became Mr. Universe; I became a successful businessman. And even though some people say I still speak with a slight accent, I have reached the top of the acting profession.

Arnold Schwarzenegger, actor

I am trying to make my accent so it won't bother anyone, but I am not going to drive myself crazy trying to pretend I am an American girl when I am from Colombia.

Shakira, musician

The accent got lost somewhere along the way. I'm a little embarrassed about it. When I arrived in LA I assumed I'd be able to put on the American accent. It proved difficult so I had six months working with a dialect coach and it's become a habit.

Martin Henderson, actor

Everyone thinks that just because you have a Scouse accent, then you must be 'on the rob'.

Jennifer Ellison, actress

People say there's no trace of an accent anymore, and there isn't because I worked very hard to lose it. And the reason I did that is a British accent in America is a real status symbol.

John Mahoney, actor

They made me use an accent, which I wasn't thrilled about because a lot of us, obviously, don't have them.

Rita Moreno, actress

A great actor is independent of the poet, because the supreme essence of feeling does not reside in prose or in verse, but in the accent with which it is delivered.

We hear foreign accents on CNN. It's crazy, it's wild, who knows, maybe they'll take you because you certainly don't fit in, in the American spectrum of news.

Christiane Amanpour, journalist

They seem to be charmed by my Southern accent.

Cleo Moore, actress

Maya Rudolph, actress

I'm a parrot. I can pick up an accent and just do it.

Brion James, actor

My whole deal when I do accents or dialects is I gotta fool the locals. If I fool the locals then I've done my job.

Brion James, actor

When I was a kid, Eisenhower had been President forever, and all of a sudden, everything in the world was all about Jack Kennedy. I was 12, interested in politics; my father was from Massachusetts, had an accent like Kennedy.

James Ellroy, writer

I just didn't have time to deliver a Buffalo accent in a day, so I didn't even try it.

Josh Holloway, actor

The only thing I did at RKO of any note was lose my Texas accent.

Dorothy Malone, actress

Now between the meanings of words and their sounds there is ordinarily no discoverable relation except one of accident; and it is therefore miraculous, to the mystic, when words which make sense can also make a uniform objective structure of accents and rhymes.

John C. Ransom,

I remember walking the dog one day, I saw a car full of teenage girls, and one of them rolled down the window and yelled, 'Marc Jacobs!' in a French accent.

Marc Jacobs, designer

I, on the other hand, have a bit of a southern accent.

Michael W. Smith, musician

Paul Lucas had a particularly amusing accent, so I chuckled. That was terrible; I shouldn't have done that, but he took it too big. He got up and said he couldn't work with people who laughed at him!

Fay Wray, actress

Working on the accent helped, enormously. I will tell you that when I brought Michael a correct "British" accent, one that my dialect coach was happy with, he hated it.

Madeleine Stowe, actress

On the other hand, there are only so many people who really knew how she was exactly, like what did her accent sound like, and the fact that she developed profound deafness when she was first running the Harriet Lane.

Mary Stuart Masterson, actress

I guess you should approach the roles differently when they're actual people who have been, this is the difference. Getting the accent exact, or the hair exact is less important in a situation like this.

Mary Stuart Masterson, actress

I would quite like to do a different accent or play something so different from myself because Olivia, the character I play in this film, is similar to me.

Charlotte Church, musician

I like playing accents, and doing things like that, it was fun. It was fun.

Albert Finney, actor

She goes on the set with headphones and gives you notes. She's terrific and I always run to her now, because she is just great to work with, as well as very good at different accents.

Albert Finney, actor

When my grandfather died, I started adopting some of his accents, to sort of remind myself of him. A homage. He was a war hero, and he was really great with his hands.

Gavin DeGraw, musician

To be honest, it's easier for me to speak with an American accent.

Radha Mitchell, actress

I was the executive editor on a little magazine called Greek Accent, whose only claim to fame is that its art director went on to be the art director of Discover for many years.

Jane Haddam, writer

Shakespeare in Love... such smart writing of an alternative view of history, and such beautiful acting. Like most Americans, I'm a sucker for the accent.

Anita Diament,

My accent depends on whom I'm around.

Claire Forlani, actress

I had a Southern accent but I had broken it so hard.

Josh Lucas, actor

I like doing accents and I like learning as much as I can learn.

Jaime King, actress

I think that's what's great about being an actress is you get to learn so many different things like that, like learning a little bit of Tibetan here, learning a Southern accent there.

Jaime King, actress

I studied voice for three months to get rid of my English accent. I changed my hair to blonde. I knew I could be sexy if I had to.

Deborah Kerr, actress

I guess when I first started speaking with an American accent, there's a tendency to create a caricature of the accent because you just exaggerate the pieces that stand out to you.

Radha Mitchell, actress

I just don't think there are any rules to color. You have a small space with no windows? Put lamps in there, make it dramatic, paint the ceiling black. Do something with it. If it's dark, accentuate the darkness.

David Bromstad, designer

I'm aware now over the last 5 or 10 years that when you do an accent, you really have to kind of get down to the nitty gritty and go into the phonetics of it, if necessary. Find out not just the sounds but the rhythms and the music - or lack thereof - in a particular accent.

Brendan Gleeson, actor

I played a lot of leaders, autocratic sorts; perhaps it was my Canadian accent.

Leslie Nielsen, actor

I'm a natural blonde. But when I started acting, I would go to auditions and they didn't know where to put me because I was voluptuous and had the accent, but I had blonde hair. It was ignorance: they thought every Latin person looks like Salma Hayek.

Sofia Vergara, model

I actually had a cockney accent before I went to drama school. It's softened up a bit.

Gemma Arterton, actress

Whatever you got you have to accentuate. I ran my female card up and down the ladder my whole career, because I was in a man's world. It was worked by women but owned by men. I was the only female owner in my field at that time.

Barbara Corcoran, businesswoman

I didn't really like my Sydney accent - nobody likes the sound of their own voice - and when I was a little younger tried to change my accent gradually. But I've only ever really lived in Sydney and Los Angeles, so I haven't been influenced by the accents of some far-off land.

Callan McAuliffe, actor
