Though David Beckham came here last year!
I'd definitely prefer to meet Peter Jackson than David Beckam (who's in Italy at the moment... ).
Talking about accents, I don't think there is anyone without an accent...I mean, there is a standard pronunciation for any language/country, the one you used to hear on tv until some years ago, but people have to study to reach it. Everybody has his own accent and I don't think that's a bad thing...I mean, it's part of who you are.
