A self-described Francophile, Joseph Gordon-Levitt was inspired to take on the French language after studying French poetry at Columbia University. Although he dropped out to concentrate on acting, he continued to pursue the language. In this clip, JGL is a little on the cautious, choppy side of things, but, more recently, when he straps on a guitar and gets behind a mic, the language of love comes flowing naturally.
Pop quiz: Where did Sandra Bullock spend a significant amount of her childhood? If you said Germany, you're right (you also have a knack for connecting very obvious dots). Bullock often traveled through Europe while her mother, a German-born opera singer, was on tour. During this time, the future Oscar-winner became fluent in her mom's native tongue, as she demonstrates in the clip on the right.
Viggo Mortensen is a name that sounds vaguely ethnic, but it's difficult to place, which is appropriate considering the actor's background. Viggo was born to an American mother and Danish father who met in Norway. Once Viggo came around, the family moved to Venezuela, then Denmark, before eventually settling in Argentina until he was 11, at which point he moved to New York. The globe-trotting helped Mortensen become a man of many languages. He is fluent in English, Danish, Spanish; conversational in French and Italian, and understands Norwegian and Swedish.
