Hilaria Baldwin has been accused of speaking with a fake Spanish accent for years

People raised questions after Hilaria's accent appeared to change in interviews over the years

Alec Baldwin's wife Hilaria has been accused of faking a Spanish accent as footage of her through the years appears to show her speech changing.

Of all the things to lie about, your own accent would probably be one of the toughest to keep up.

Every single time you spoke to someone, you'd have to remember what accent you'd chosen, how strong it was and how you pronounced certain words.

It would be stressful enough as an average Joe, but even more so if you're in the spotlight, with interviews caught on camera for all to see.

Hilaria and Alec married in 2012.

Some people think its this kind of evidence that proves Hilaria has been faking her accent - so let's go back through the years and see how it's changed.


Just over a decade ago, Hilaria appeared on Good Morning America and discussed life as a newlywed, having recently tied the knot with husband Alec.

She spoke as if she originated from Spain, with her accent evident as she told the programme: "Married life is really nice. You know, it feels different. It really feels different. But I didn't think it was going to be different."


Her Spanish accent made another, more prominent appearance a few years later, when she appeared on the Today show and appeared to struggle with English as she took part in a segment making gazpacho.

Hilaria pointed to the ingredients and seemingly forgot the word for 'cucumber', saying: "We have very few ingredients. We have tomatoes, we have, um, how do you say?"


Things began to waver a little in 2018, when you could have argued Hilaria's accent sounded either Spanish or American as she was back on Today to talk about being a mother.

"It's not easy, and I think part of it is that I'm in shape before I have a baby and then I stay active when I'm pregnant. I'm not trying to stay thin. I'm just trying to keep my circulation going and stretching and keep my muscle tone up," she said.

Internet users have speculated about Hilaria's accent for years.


One year after her apparent accent confusion, Hilaria claimed on a podcast that she didn't move to the United States until she went to college - a claim later disputed by people alleging they'd gone to high school with her in Boston.


Things came to a head in December 2020, when a Twitter user created a thread of videos attempting to prove Hilaria had been faking her accent.

After taking some time away from social media in the wake of the allegations, Hilaria returned in early 2021 to respond to questions about her accent, stating: "My parents raised my brother and me with two cultures, American and Spanish, and I feel a true sense of belonging to both.

"The way I've spoken about myself and my deep connection to two cultures could have been better explained—I should have been more clear and I'm sorry."

In an interview with The New York Times, Hilaria spoke further about her early years as she claimed she was born in Boston before spending time in both Boston and in Spain. It's worth noting that previously, Hilaria's own talent agency had her birthplace listed as Mallorca.

"My family now lives in Spain. I moved to New York when I was 19 years old and I have lived here ever since," Hilaria continued.

"For me, I feel like I have spent 10 years sharing that story over and over again. And now it seems like it's not enough."

In spite of Hilaria's efforts to explain herself, earlier this year she came under fire again when footage of her speaking with photographers in New York emerged online.

Many people may still have questions about Hilaria's 'real' accent, but after all these years, maybe we'll just have to take it as it comes.

UNILAD has attempted to contact representatives for Hilaria for comment.
