5 Celebrities You May Not Know Are Bilingual

Need some inspiration for your bilingual journey? Look to the stars! Seriously. All the cool kids are doing it.

I had no idea some of this folks were rockin' the language skillz, but a little research taught me a few things. Pretty cool.

Sandra Bullock

Who knew Sandra's mom was a German Opera singer? She passed on the language to her daughter. Check out her acceptance speech at this German awards show.

Mila Kuis

She moved to the States at the age of 7, knowing no English. Mila learned quickly, though. (Aren't kids amazing?) But she's still fluent in Russian!

Charlize Theron

Charlize is South African, which I did not know. Here's a video of her speaking in Afrikaans, including the correct pronunciation of her name.

Ben Affleck

At age 13, Ben spent a year in Mexico filming a children's TV show. He learned Spanish, and can still use it.

Natalie Portman

Natalie has dual American and Israeli citizenship. She was actually born in Jerusalem. Listen to this girl rock some Hebrew!

A little celebrity fun this Friday. Who else surprised you with their bilingual-ness?
