These Celebrities Have An Amazing Talent

November 4th, 2014 2:37pm EST
C'est Magnifique! Celebs Who Speak Three Or More Languages
Many celebrities are bilingual, but those who speak three or more languages are even more impressive.

Salma Hayek Pinault ("Frida," "Puss In Boots," "Grown Ups") was born in Mexico, and her native language is Spanish. She also speaks English, Portuguese and Arabic fluently. She is married to French billionaire Francois-Henri Pinault, so we suspect she speaks his language as well. But she's modest. She told David Letterman in 2013: "My French is just a humiliation every time I try to do it...I'm just not good at it."

Hiddleston & Whedon
Images have emerged on Reddit of an email correspondence between British actor Tom Hiddleston and director Joss Whedon.

The email is a 'thank you' from Hiddleston, who sent it to Whedon after reading over the entire 'The Avengers' script. Evidently, Hiddleston was absolutely thrilled by the way Whedon wrote Loki, so much so that it prompted an excited response from God of mischief himself.

His praise was highly British, writing "It's high operatic villainy... it's grand and epic and majestic and poetic and lyrical and wicked and rich and badass and might possibly be the most gloriously f...

20 Utterly Sexy British Actors
It's hard to deny it - there's something really attractive about a British accent. We don't know if it's the inflection or the vocabulary (Collywobbles? Bollocks? Gobsmacked?), but whatever it is, it's hot.

Whether she's making a soulful noise with her golden pipes on "Glee" or electrifying the dance floor on "Dancing With The Stars," Amber Riley is always dazzling.

The four kids all agree, with one of them speaking her mind and feeling the wrath of the Norse trickster.
