Meet Your Favorite Multilingual Celebrities
What is good about this list of celebrities is that they never failed to impress us. Whether it’s with their acting, singing, dancing, humor, and the likes, they’re just awesome. Hence, we compiled some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry and the languages that they could speak. You’ll be surprised at learning some of them, that’s for sure! Christopher Lee, for example, is known as Saruman in the Lord of the Rings franchise, so obviously, he can speak English. However, he cannot only speak one language, not two, but more than five! Polyglot, indeed.
Many of these celebrities came from other countries; they just made it big in the United States. Another example is Celine Dion, she’s born in Canada, and she can speak French. As we all know, award-winning actress Sandra Oh is Korean; she even emphasized that in an episode of Grey’s Anatomy. Not to mention she also said “Saranghaeyo” in her Golden Globes acceptance speech. Yes, I love you too!
Ben Affleck | Spanish, English
Ben Affleck’s Spanis fans would probably be thrilled to know that the actor can, in fact, converse in the language. However, it doesn’t seem like Affleck is as fluent as most people think. According to Hollywood, he lived in Mexico with his brother for a year when he was 13. Since he and Jennifer Lopez are reportedly rekindling their romance, we think that Ben should practice speaking Spanish even more. After all, Jenny from the Block can also speak the language fluently.
Apart from being an effective actor, Benjamin Géza Affleck-Boldt is also a screenwriter, producer, and director. He was born in Berkeley, California, on August 15, 1972. The actor is a multi-genre prodigy with several roles in different genres of film. Furthermore, the actor also boasts box office film credits, including Shakespeare in Love, Armageddon, and Good Will Hunting. As for joint endeavors, the actor received an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay with childhood best friend, Matt Damon.
