What The Heck Is Going On With Lindsay Lohan’s New Accent?

Lindsay Lohan can fake a great British accent (she played a British twin in The Parent Trap) but it appears that after living in London, the actress has picked a British accent for real.

Lindsay, a girl from Long Island, NY who was fortunate enough to never really sound like she was from Long Island, was talking to reporters in Athens, Georgia when people started to notice that she sounded a little bit unlike her old self. Her accent unmistakably had hints of Irish, British and Euro with some strange tinges of Russian and Australian. So what’s going on?

Lohan explained to The Daily Mail that her accent is a mix of the languages she speaks. “It’s a mixture of most of the languages I can understand or am trying to learn,” she said. “I’ve been learning different languages since I was a child. I’m fluent in English and French, can understand Russian and am learning Turkish, Italian and Arabic.”

Lindsay even admitted that her accent was kind of strange. She even gave it some attention on Twitter.

Lindsay isn’t the first star to adopt a new accent out of the blue. Madonna famously developed a British accent after she married Guy Ritchie and moved to London. For Gwyneth Paltrow, it took a lot less than a move across the pond. After portraying British characters in movies, Paltrow started actually speaking in a British accent, which she later mocked in a 1999 appearance on Saturday Night Live.
