These Celebrities Have An Amazing Talent

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."

13 Celebrities With Irresistible Accents
There's something about a foreign accent that's incredibly sexy. It makes us dismiss certain flaws if someone's voice has that Irish lilt or Australian inflection.

And let's not forget the sensual Spanish and Latin American accents!

She's also appeared in films such as "My Week With Marilyn," "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," "This Is...
