Hollywood actress Lindsay Lohan is worried about an upcoming role in which she has to talk with a British accent, because she dreads her efforts being compared to Dick Van Dyke.
American Van Dyke's performance in 1960s movie MARY POPPINS features a notoriously unconvincing London cockney accent, and Lohan is keen to avoid any comparisons with her turn in A WOMAN OF NO IMPORTANCE.
She says, "I'm going to London in the spring to make a movie with KEIRA KNIGHTLEY. It's a period piece and my character has a British accent. "But it's crazy. If I hang out with a British person for an hour or so, I start talking just like them. I can pick up accents pretty well. "But I don't want to be remembered like Van Dyke."
