Robert Pattinson visits voice coach to get his British accent back

Robert Pattinson was forced to see an accent coach while filming recent movie Bel Ami to hone his English accent.

The 26-year-old actor's natural voice had started to fade after playing a string of American characters, including Twilight's Edward Cullen.

'They hired an accent coach as Rob's spent a lot of time in LA,' his Bel Ami co-star Christina Ricci, 32, revealed to US chat show host Jimmy Kimmel.

'He made fun of me as I was trying to be British and sounded like a Hollywood valley girl.'

But it seems Barnes-born Rob isn't that bothered about keeping his London tones.

He recently admitted that he prefers to play characters with different nationalities to his own.

'I feel very naked with my British accent,' Robert told The Sun. 'I feel like I'm not really acting.'

Lily Allen is still getting used to her post-pregnancy body after giving birth to daughter Ethel in November.

'Stretch marks are gross, but going to bed all greased up is not cosy. #torn,' Tweets Lily.

The 27-year-old singer - who celebrated her first wedding anniversary with husband Sam Cooper earlier this month - thrilled fans on Wednesday when she revealed she's been in the studio recording new music.

It seems she's had a change of heart since insisting in 2009 she had no plans to make another record.

Michael Jackson's daughter Paris: A lot of people don't like me - I don't know why

Michael Jackson's daughter Paris has revealed that she's picked on at school.

The 14-year-old - whose superstar dad died aged 50 in 2009 - says some of her peers can be 'fake'.

'There are kids at school who talk so bad behind my back, and they don't think I can hear them,' Paris tells Oprah Winfrey.

'Sometimes I can and a lot of times my friends tell me what they say, and I'm like: "OK".

'A lot of people don't like me...I don't know what it is.'

Paris, who attends a top private school in LA, is also targeted online.

'Some people have tried to cyber-bully me,' says Paris.

'They try to get to me with words, but that doesn't really work.
