Yesterday we asked if you could identify actors' native accents behind some of your favorite TV and movie characters. While compiling our top ten, we realized we could have a whole separate list of American actors getting their British on. Here's our top ten fake British accents - those we love because they're flawless and those we love because they're so appalling they just make us smile.

    Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johansson both adopted a British accent for 'The other Boleyn Girl' - our vote goes to Natalie for the more convincing job.

    Those in the UK were miffed when an American girl was chosen to play cultural icon Bridget Jones. We have to admit, we think Renee Zellweger nailed the part. (@pguasto reminded us of Renee.)

    Johnny Depp was born in Owensboro, Kentucky, but his swaggering British pirate Captain Jack Sparrow from 'Pirates of the Caribbean' leaves the BBQ capital of America far behind. (@gunsx3g0xbangx3 suggested this one, thanks!)
