    I always wondered why they didn’t glam her like this in dumpling. She is so beautiful and a great canvas and it’s important for plus size people to see someone who can transform to be beautiful without losing weight. I would have loved the movie a bit more for that

  • Hubba bubba

    You can tell that she's losing her accent completely, from time to time she'll slip back into her Australian accent for a second.

    • Hubba bubba
      Hubba bubba 29 days ago

      @Nate Dwyer hahahha that would confuse them as hell. I love it when people are like " omg!! You're Australian!?!! I love your accent sooo much" and I'm thinking you should hear the people that live out in the bush, I can't understand them because they have such a strong tone to their voices. I'm loving this conversation we're having. 😂

    • Nate Dwyer
      Nate Dwyer 29 days ago +2

      Hubba bubba oh hell yeah! Aussies for the win ahahah!! I get you now! Yeah my Aunt lives in Alabama now and has for the past 30 years now, so when she comes back everyone can barely understand her 😂 it took me ages to be able to over pronounce me ‘R’s and put less emphasis on my vowels but I find it hilarious because I’ll often switch it up at different stores just to see how people react to the accent 😂

    • Hubba bubba
      Hubba bubba 29 days ago +9

      @Nate Dwyer I'm Australian too! 😊 I totally understand you but, I think because she has lived in America for a long time she's losing her accent. I myself find it hard to speak in an American accent due to the bloody 'r' sounds that I can't ever manage. 😅

    • Nate Dwyer
      Nate Dwyer 29 days ago +10

      Hubba bubba it’s actually something we can put on (I’m Australian) and certain words when pronounced Infront of an American, sound confusing (such as water) and they can’t really understand us, so when in the US it’s just easier to stick with an American accent

    • Rachel Isabelle
      Rachel Isabelle 19 days ago

      I think cause she (and other Australian actors) has to put on the American accent all day for her job it begins to stick more. Also, I think some people are more susceptible to it than others. I'm Australian and have been living in the US for a year and half now and haven't lost my accent. My friend however who's been here 2 years (not much longer than me) is losing it.

    • Susan Abela

      I think she's lost it quicker because she speaks in an American accent in her movies

    • Debzy Music
      Debzy Music 26 days ago

      Just depends on the person actually. As well as age you moved etc but mostly depends on the person. Sometimes I go American when I’m on holidays because people just don’t understand me sometimes HAHA or depends who I am with. There’s also like 3 different Aussie accents, you got the full on Aussie for example Hugh and Hemsworth, then there’s cultivated which is slightly British like Cate Blanchett. I forgot the other. Mines a bit on the cultivated side but when I’m pissed it’s full on Aussie haha
