The 16 Most Surprisingly Bilingual Celebrities

Actors are known for being skilled at languages, using their talents to tell universal stories. But while many of the most recognizable actors today gain fame by appearing in English-speaking films, some are fluent in other languages. You might be surprised to learn, for example, that Bradley Cooper speaks absolutely flawless French. Which other famous celebrities are bilingual?

Some actors don't stop with just one language: Natalie Portman speaks five languages (fluently)! Not all bilingual actors and actresses actually do films in other languages - but some do, and others handle dubs in other languages with ease (we're looking at you, super-smart Jodie Foster).

Behold these awesome videos of bilingual celebrities and videos of celebrities speaking a foreign language. Whose language skills are the best? Be sure to vote for the most linguistically talented celebrities below!
