Diane Kruger can't master a Scottish accent.

The German-born actress - who portrays a French-speaking journalist in new movie 'Special Forces' - can generally get to grips with any dialect but the unique tone of the people from Scotland has always left her flummoxed.

It's all a matter of rehearsal. You can learn any accent you want. It's a fascinating thing.

She said: "I'm afraid to try the Scottish accent. Oh my God that would be hard.

"It's all a matter of rehearsal. You can learn any accent you want. It's a fascinating thing."

The 35-year-old star - who currently spends the majority of her time with boyfriend Joshua Jackson in Los Angeles - never wanted to be "typecast" as one particular nationality, which encouraged her to perfect as many languages as possible.

Diane explained: "I always said that was my big dream as an actor; to be between two chairs. I never wanted to be typecast as a nationality.

"This does have the result of consistently having to do more work for a role, to be able to speak without an accent in English, to be able to speak with all different kinds of accents playing other nationalities or when I speak in French or German."
