Gyllenhaal's Nanny McPhee accent is all White's
Actress Maggie Gyllenhaal mastered her British accent in new movie Nanny Mcphee And The Big Bang by mimicking the voice of director Susanna White.
The Crazy Heart star is a native New Yorker and admits she drew inspiration for her character's voice from the filmmaker, choosing to converse with other crew members on set in her fake accent to perfect the role.
She says, "I wanted to sound like Susanna so I just talked that way all the time. So I'd walk into the make up trailer and just start talking like that so they got used to it and I got used to it."
