Kate Middleton Would Not Want This A-List Actress Playing Her

kate middletonBefore I even get into the details of how I think this actress is totally out of her mind for wanting to play Kate Middleton in a movie, I'm just going to say -- the fact that anyone is even talking about a Prince William/Kate Middleton movie is straight up ridic. Let the Duchess establish herself a little bit more before turning her life into a money-making mockery, Hollywood. Sheesh bo beesh.

Okay, so this actress. I actually kind of like her. Most of the time. Some of the time she can get a wee bit on my nerves because of her bubbliness. However, I do think she's pretty. Not as pretty as Kate Middleton, though. Wondering who I'm talking about ...?

Anne Hathaway! While doing the red carpet thing this week in London at the premiere for her new movie, One Day, Hathaway was asked if she would be interested in playing HRH Catherine. Her answer? (Obviously.) Of course she would! The actress said, "I haven't really thought about it before, but yes, why not. She's great. It's such a fairy tale."

Weird, right? I mean, it's not weird that she wants to play the future Queen of England, I'm sure all actresses want that; it's weird because, well, how do I say this tactfully? Apparently her British accent sucks a fat one.

In her most recent movie, the aforementioned One Day, Anne plays a lass from Yorkshire -- a town with a notoriously tricky accent. She said that she watched hours upon hours of the British soap Emmerdale in order to prepare for the role -- but she still couldn't seem to get it. She's being panned left and right for her "rubbish" English dialect.

So, perhaps Anne has a little work to do before she plays Britain's most famous lady. She's already got Kate's shiny brown hair going for her, so there's that. She just needs to perfect the accent. Or, hey, here's an idea -- if Hollywood ever does come out with a Kate Middleton movie, they can use a real, live British actress!

Do you think Anne would be a good choice to play Kate?
