Matthew McConaughey “sexiest man alive”?

I can’t stand this guy (how on earth was he voted ‘sexiest man alive‘?). Not only because of the way he looks, but mostly from the way he sounds. His Texan accent is so strong and redneck-ish that each time I have to endure him on movies or TV my hair goes vertical. He was on Jay Leno a few months ago, and he was proudly describing his obsessive compulsive behavior to brush his teeth about 20 times a day. Man, how I would love to kick him in the nuts. I don’t like his ex-girlfiend’s english accent either (Penelope Cruz — yes, the one who looks like a chicken), but she’s nowhere as bad compared to him.

Ok, back on testing the Nokia E61 now…

He never did much for me. I like Helen Hunt, especially in “As Good As It Gets”

Penelope Cruz has a Spanish accent. She does not have an English accent. She is not English. She has an accent when speaking in English, as I giess you do too.

Penelope’s and most spaniards accent can be explained. You see, in Spain foreign movies and tv series are allways dubbed in spanish instead of being subtitled, so they never really learn how to pronounce english properly. I guess this also happens in Italy and Greece…

It happens in many European countries, but *thank God*, not in Greece. If it’s one thing I can’t stand more than Matthew McConaughey that’s movie dubbing. It takes away 70% of the movie experience.

I know that she is Spanish. But she is also an actress, and I have YET to see her in an ENGLISH-speaking movie talking without that strong spanish accent. Take for example other non-Americans that try to become stars in US: they all got language coaches to learn to lose their accents. She didn’t. And while this works for 1-2 movies, after that it becomes too weird and too repetitive. I just don’t like the way she sounds. But as I said, she ain’t as bad as Matthew McConaughey is.

And no, my accent is not as strong as hers. Thank God, I haven’t inheritted the Greek-English accent where all the “r” are RRRRRrrr (and I left home 10 years ago, so I have worked on that). Greeks and Italians are worse in their english accents than Cruz or McConaughey are. I will give you that.
