Jackie Kennedy's wit and style suits a British actress such as Rachel Weisz who will play the role in an upcoming film, writes The Independent. "It is not the first time that the role of Jackie Kennedy has gone to a Brit. She was famously played by Jacqueline Bisset in America's Prince and less notably by Joanne Whalley in an American television mini series. While we are so unhinged about class that Lord Mandelson can attack the Tory leader for his 'long toffee nose', America still reveres the Kennedys as the nearest they got to a royal family. Thus an American legend is also something of an honorary Brit. The words most often applied to Jacqueline Kennedy are 'style' and 'class'."
