We might be famed for our notoriously terrible teeth, our inclement weather, and our insatiable thirst for tea. But we Brits are also in possession of a secret weapon: our sexy accents.
For some (frankly inexplicable) reason, a lot of people find it irresistible. Even movie star Elizabeth Banks.
“I think the English accent is rather sexy,” Banks told Graham Norton.
Jennifer Connelly, who’s married to English actor Paul Bettany, is in agreement. “I do too,” Connelly said to Banks.
Indeed, so ardent are Banks’ feelings for the British accent, we could pretty much say anything to her.
“I feel like if you read the phone book to me in a British accent, it’s comin’ off,” Banks said, gesturing to her nether regions.
