Andrew Garfield takes our superheroes; women.
Andrew Garfield is the latest Brit to invade your friendly neighborhood, donning Spider-Man’s mask in this week’s “The Amazing Spider-Man.” Turns out those Limeys are always trying to take our stuff: first the War of 1812, and then the movies.
A multiple offender (look at him in “Newsies,” taking American paper-boy jobs), Bale has most notably shed his accent in Christopher Nolan’s “Batman” trilogy.
A member of the Redgrave family, Richardson is practically British royalty. But that didn’t stop her from embracing the U.S. in 2000’s “The Patriot.”
Born in Wales, Hopkins is now a naturalized American citizen. Which is pretty amazing, since he got inside Tricky Dick’s head in 1995’s “Nixon.” He couldn’t have played a more noble president?
She got to play Scarlett O’Hara AND Blanche DuBois in “Gone with the Wind” and “A Streetcar Named Desire,” respectively. At least she kept her invasion to one region.
Look, taking our roles is one thing. But getting to kiss Leonardo DiCaprio TWICE (in “Titanic” and “Revolutionary Road”) is just going too far.
