LIFE.com: The Worst Accents in Movie History

Keanu Reeves: Very Little Buddha

Despite his inability to handle accents, Keanu Reeves continues to get work playing god-like characters. In 1993's "Little Buddha," he plays Siddharta Gautama, the Hindu prince who achieves enlightenment and becomes Buddha. Indian activists were upset that a skin-darkened Reeves, who is mostly of English descent (but also part Chinese and Hawaiian), was cast as an Indian prince — but pretty much everyone was upset by the fact that he actually got speaking lines.
