Renee Zellweger: 'I Was Too Lazy To Stop Speaking In An English Accent'

Renee ZellwegerOscar winner Renee Zellweger spoke every word in an English accent for six months while filming new movie Miss Potter because she was too "lazy" to relearn her vowel sounds each morning.

As well as perfecting her English accent to play British writer and illustrator Beatrix Potter in the new film, the 37-year-old actress dyed her hair dark brown on a daily basis, but she wishes she'd had the courage to change her hair color permanently.

Discussing her refusal to drop her English accent, she says, "It was just lazy because I don't want to work in the morning to start all over again. I just wanted it to be habit because I don't want to think about it. I don't want to have to do the exercises to start your face going in the right direction and using the right muscles in your face. I colored my hair every day for this picture. Every day I put temporary brown color that was dripping down my neck as I left my hotel room to go to set and I wished I had colored it, just committed to it, because it would have been a nice shade of brown by the end of the film instead of the sort of papaya-pink that it ended up becoming."
