5 Celebrities Who Speak More Than One Language
“Most of you girls out there might already know many Hollywood celebrities who can speak French and Spanish in addition to English, right?”, asked Mrs. Gossiper. “That’s where the magic of Mrs. Gossiper comes into action. I’m going to give out my little secrets on Hollywood celebrities who speak foreign languages, apart from the expected Spanish and French”, she said. This piqued our interest. Who were these multilingual celebrities that we don’t know about?
1. Monica Bellucci
"C'mon, it isn't rocket science that Monica Bellucci is a Hollywood celebrity who speaks foreign languages including Italian, since she is born there. But can you tell me which other languages she knows?", Mrs. Gossiper said. "No, Mrs. G, we're waiting for that insider's info from you!", we teased her. Smiling, Mrs. Gossiper said, "Monica is well-versed with Italian, French, and English while she still has to get a command over Spanish. This is because she has done many movies in these languages".

2. Charlize Theron
"I told you last time that this babe is born in South Africa, right?", asked Mrs. Gossiper. We nodded in agreement. "Then it shouldn't come to you as a surprise that she is one more Hollywood celebrity who can speak foreign languages, particularly the native African language, Afrikaans. In fact, she's known to give many red carpet interviews in this language", she added. "Trust me friends, Afrikaans sounds exotic. And this Academy Award winning multilingual star has parents of German and Dutch ancestry. So, I'm sure this Hollywood celebrities speaks German and Dutch as well", concluded Mrs. Gossiper.

"What the hell? How does she know Hebrew?", we asked, completely astounded by hearing this fact. "Yes darlings. Natalie was born in Israel, took Hebrew classes at school and continued learning the language after she completed her graduation from Harvard. I am just wondering that Natalie might speak Hebrew, but who would understand?", said Mrs. Gossiper.

"Oh god, does this saucy Hollywood celebrity speak many foreign languages?", we asked Mrs. Gossiper. "Yes munchkins. This Waka Waka girl is a native Spanish speaker as also speaks fluent English and Portuguese. She also knows some Italian, French and Arabic. Apart from being well-versed at foreign languages, Shakira has many other talents like belly dancing and live performance for rock and roll from her school days", said Mrs. Gossiper, who always pines for that one last word.
