In an interview, Anne Hathaway said, "I was more nervous about the accent than nudity. I mean, you can do sit-ups as prep for the nudity. But there aren't a lot of vocal sit-ups that you can do. Maybe it's because I have more experience in my life being naked than pretending to be British. So I got more comfortable quickly with the nudity than I did with the accent."
However, Anne Hathaway, who was born in New York and raised in New Jersey, worked hard at mastering the accent. She stayed in the accent and used British-isms. But she was a little disappointed because she hoped to start dreaming in the accent, which could never happened.
Actress Anne Hathaway has revealed that she was more tensed about the British accent than the nudity in her latest movie One Day. The American star, who appears as a Yorkshire girl Emma in the film, gushed that she was more comfortable stripping off for a skinny dipping scene with her co-star Jim Sturgess. But she was nervous about her character's regional dialect.
