Emma Watson’s been perfecting her American accent for years now, not only through film roles like “The Perks of Being a Wallflower,” but also as part of MTV’s recurring web feature “American Talk,” in which our own Josh Horowitz forces unsuspecting Brits to recite phrases like “booyah” and “the Olive Garden” in their best Yankee inflection. So, of course, when the actress and her “Bling Ring” co-stars stopped by last night for the final flourish of our Sneak Peek Week leading up to Sunday’s MTV Movie Awards, we just had to give Emma one more pop quiz.
In her flick due June 14, Emma plays one of several bandits who burgle the homes of celebrities like Paris Hilton and Rachel Bilson. So with her character’s SoCal roots, we gave Emma what has to be the most thoroughly L.A.-esque reading ever—one that may or may not involve Channing Tatum.
Click play on the clip above to hear Emma’s best American, and keep watching for talk about her “Bling Ring” vision board.
Want more Emma? The actress will be on hand at tomorrow’s MTV Movie Awards (airing live at 9 p.m. ET), where she’s not only nominated for three Golden Popcorns, but will also be honored with this year’s Trailblazer Award.
