Robert Pattinson's Aussie co-Star in the drama Movie Remember Me, Emilie de Ravin, had just four days to adopt the accent of a working class girl from New York's Queens.
"We went to Queen's for a little bit and tried to pick up something," says Pattinson.
"It's nothing like her Australian accent. Her Australian accent, I can't even describe it, it's just raucous...it's the most Australian out of every-one I've met."
The movie tells the story of two lovers whose newfound relationship is threatened as they try to cope with family tragedies. Melbourne actress de Ravin, 28, a star of hit TV series Lost, was cast in Remember Me because of the instant chemistry with Pattinson.
"I read with a tonne of girls for the part and watch loads of auditon tapes. She was the last person who came in," Pattinson says.
"It's so funny, the script is written for a Spanish girl from the Bronx, and she's the total opposite of it. Bust she did have it, as soon as she walked into the room.
"She was just really spunky and she had a real hard-core attitude about her."
Pattinson has another Australian link through Kristen Stewart,19,who plays his girlfriend Bella in Twilight and is rumoured to be his off-screen sweetheart.
"I talk to her mum about Australia. Her mum's really,really into Australia," Pattinson says.
