Anne Hathaway Admits She Struggles To Do A British Accent, Says Her 3-Year-Old Son Hates Her Singing

Anne Hathaway admits she still struggles to do a British accent as she talks about her role in “The Hustle” on Friday’s “The Graham Norton Show”.

Hathaway, who appears on the chat show alongside her co-star Rebel Wilson, says she wasn’t given much warning in terms of preparing for the accent.

She reveals, “I found out I had to do it a week before we started shooting. I thought if I didn’t do it, it wouldn’t make a difference, but the director insisted.

“I’ve done it before and it hasn’t always gone well, and it is so stressful to see someone struggle through an accent, so I got a dialect coach and made the best of it.”

Hathaway’s comments come after her Yorkshire accent in the 2011 film “One Day” was criticized.

The actress’ “Graham Norton Show” appearance also sees her tell the talk-show host that her 3-year-old son Jonathan is not a fan of her singing voice.

Hathaway famously won an Oscar for her role in “Les Miserables”, but she shares: “He does not like my singing voice at all. When I sing he puts his hand up and says, ‘Mama no! Mama no!'”

“He is a very tough crowd. Recently though, I was singing something from ‘Peppa Pig’ and he let me continue. I was crying and singing!”
