We admit, accents are hard to do. But we're normal people. With all the access they have to dialect coaches, shouldn't our favorite actors be able to nail the fake accents they attempt?
The ones on our list of actors who are terrible at doing accents definitely do not nail their attempts. In fact, they often fail so badly that it ruins the entire movie. For example, Nic Cage's accent in Captain Corelli's Mandolin is so cringe-worthy it's not even amusing. And to this day, people still laugh about Kevin Costner's there/not there British accent in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves.So how is it that the actors on our list - amazing actors like Michael Caine and Kevin Spacey - have such great acting skills but such bad accents? We may never know. But as we learned from Russell Crowe (he stormed out of an interview after being told his British accent was actually Irish), you do not want to call them out for being on the list of actors who can't do accents.
