Colin began Italian lessons when he started dating Livia Giuggioli in order to be more connected with her. Now, the pair is married with children, and Firth is totally fluent.
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.

Viggo Mortensen speaks Spanish

Foster attended a French-language prep school, the Lycée Français de Los Angeles, and graduated in 1980. She frequently stayed and worked in France as a teenager, and speaks the language fluently.

Eastwood translating Ennio Morricones speech to English.
She speaks French very well.
Kim Cattrall's second marriage to Andre Lyson ended in divorce in 1989, but she came out of the split with a second language to show for it. During their time together, Cattrall and Lyson lived in Frankfurt where she learned to speak German. While she has since admitted to forgetting much of what she learned, Kim seems to be doing just fine in this clip from 2008.

Danish, English, French, German, Italian, Norwegian, Swedish, and a little Spanish
