Emily Blunt was born in London, but her 2-year-old daughter Hazel doesn’t sound like she’s the daughter of a British actress. In fact, her accent is leaning more toward that of an American mobster.
“She’s sounding a bit American from what I can see. ‘Can I have some wah-ta?’” the 33-year-old told The Hollywood Reporter, imitating little Hazel. “I was like, ‘Wodder?’ And she went, ‘No, it’s wah-ta.’ I was like, ‘Oh, for God’s sake!’”
The Girl on the Train star has been sharing a townhouse in Brooklyn with hubby John Krasinski and daughter Hazel for almost a year, and welcomed 12-week-old daughter Violet into the home in June. Apparently, the strong Brooklyn accents in the neighborhood have been having quite the effect on little Hazel, but Blunt’s upcoming movie may be able to change that.
If a year in New York was enough to influence little Hazel’s accent, we’re guessing eight months in England could have her speaking the Queen’s English in no time.
