Hollywood actress Lindsay Lohan is worried about an upcoming role in which she has to talk with a British accent, because she dreads her efforts being compared to Dick Van Dyke. American Van Dyke's performance in 1960s movie Mary Poppins features a notoriously unconvincing London cockney accent, and Lohan is keen to avoid any comparisons with her turn in A WOMAN OF NO IMPORTANCE. She says, "I'm going to London in the spring to make a movie with Keira Knightley. It's a period piece and my character has a British accent. "But it's crazy. If I hang out with a British person for an hour or so, I start talking just like them. I can pick up accents pretty well. "But I don't want to be remembered like Van Dyke."

Lindsay Lohan would do well to be "remembered like Van Dyke," a thorough professional and comic genius whose terrific performance, shaky accent notwithstanding, helped make "Mary Poppins" an all-time classic and a mega-hit. "Bert" was not a part about an accent, and Dick Van Dyke can and should be proud of his funny, touching, energetic performance. If Lindsay Lohan makes one movie in her career half as good as "Mary Poppins," she'll be doing well. She needs to shut up about actors who have proven their talents, especially before she has proven hers.
