Hathaway Dissed (Again) -- 'Life' Ranks Worst Accents In Movie History

STAN HONDA/AFP/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Fresh from stinging criticism of her Oscar hosting duties earlier this year, barbs over her playing Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises and a box office bomb in her new drama One Day, Anne Hathaway just got more bad news. Her British accent in the film has just landed her on a none-too-flattering ranking compiled by Life.com: its "Worst Accents in Movie History" list.

The website puts Hathaway's One Day English accent alongside such infamous linguistic lapses as Mickey Rooney's racist Chinese intonations in 1961's Breakfast at Tiffany's, Keanu Reeves' attempted Indian accent in 1993's Little Buddha, and Kevin Costner's Sherwood Forest-by-way-of-SoCal accent in 1991's Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves.
