Wired has just shared a video of dialect coach Erik Singer analysing the accents of some of Hollywood’s biggest names. The 16-minute clip sees Singer critiquing some actors performances, praising others, and quite frankly ripping apart a few of them. Case in point, Mickey Rooney’s disgraceful Japanese accent in the New York classic Breakfast at Tiffany’s is quite rightly met with the comment: "who the fuck let this happen".

Other actors analysed include Idris Elba in The Wire, Rene Zellweger in Bridget Jones’s Diary, Brad Pitt in Inglourious Basterds, Leonardo DiCaprio in Blood Diamond, Angelina Jolie in Maleficent and many more… Take a look above!
