Twilight star Robert Pattinson is taking elocution lessons to reclaim his English accent because he has spent too much time in LA.

The 26-year-old actor is one of Britain's most successful acting exports in Hollywood and will be next seen playing an Englishman in Bel Ami, reported Daily Mail online.

Christina Ricci, 27, his co-star in the film said that the actor hired accent coach to maintain his mother tongue accent.

"Rob hired an accent coach as he spent a lot of time in LA. He made fun of me as I was trying to be British and sounded like a Hollywood valley girl," Ricci said.

Pattinson, who was educated at the 6,000 pounds-a-year at Harrodian school in South-West London, recently said that he felt naked when using his real accent in a film.
