Just seen this interview with her

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IRoEwfXPZ_g

She speaks much better English than Ray Winstone and he has become one of the UK's biggest actors. I recently saw an interview with Winstone and I couldn't believe an actor had such poor spoken grammar. It seems to be OK to speak badly if you're from London (EastEnders is another example) but not if you're from further north.
You're joking right? People with London and South East accents get bashed all the time for being 'common'. It seems all regional accents are fine except for London ones in many peoples eyes. Especially when anyone from Brighton up to Milton Keynes is called a 'cockney' as an insult
