They are popular. They are rich. They speak French. Here are a few celebrities who can confidently add ‘‘Spoken Languages: French’’ to their résumés along with their long list of accomplishments.
God I miss Christina in Grey’s Anatomy! And I have one more reason now that I know that Sandra Oh studied in Montreal, where she learned French. Bonus: she has the cutest québécois accent. See here by yourself!
She definitely has all talents. She was born in Paris, where she was raised for her first 5 years, and speaks French quite well since then.
What is it with the Emmas and French? Maybe that’s because Emma Watson and her are British, a country close to France. This brilliant actress does not stop to surprise me.
The first time I heard Jodie Foster speak French in an interview on television, I was completely astonished! Her French is practically perfect, better than many whose mother tongue is French…
This famous actor lived about 10 years in France, where he still owns a property.
J. K. Rowling
The author of Harry Potter received the French Legion of Honour, France’s highest award, in 2009. No wonder the name of her villain is Voldemort, a name that, according to her, ‘‘evokes both power and exoticism’’. Hey, is that the impression you guys have of us, Francophones? 😉
