'Weird hearing him speak!' Despite being in the movie business since the eighties, Christian Bale's real accent has continued to leave fans shocked and confused

 

He has cemented his a-list status in huge Hollywood blockbusters such as The Machinist, American Psycho and Batman's The Dark Knight series. 

 

But despite being in the movie business since the eighties, Christian Bale's real accent has continued to leave fans shocked and confused. 

 

The star, who was born in Wales and grew up in Surrey, Dorset, and Bournemouth, appeared on BBC Breakfast on Wednesday with Matt Damon, where it was his prominent cockney twang that caught the attention of viewers.  

 

After being born in Pembrokeshire, Christian spent a lot of time relocating around the UK with his parents, and they even lived in Portugal.

A lot of Americans were shocked when they discovered Idris Elba of The Wire had a London accent. 

 

Like Christian Bale, it just means they've done a good job.

There's no end of UK actors playing lead roles in US produced TV and movies. I've been surprised by some of them myself.

Their eyes pop when they hear Hugh Lawrie (Dr House) for the first time in Blackadder or Jeeves & Wooster 😎

Bale doesn't speak with a true cockney accent. He's using a London dialect. Bloody good actor though.

Not forgetting Dominic West from that but also a mention for Damian Lewis (Homeland) & the list could go on

And Brits were shocked when they learned that Dick Van Dyke wasn’t a real cockney in Mary Poppins!

I love quite a few American actors but British are the best by far.
