Game of Thrones premiere in April, and right now the internet is flooded with countless interviews and news articles about the stars of the show. One video that has resurfaced is an interview with Emilia Clark (Daenerys Targaryen) where she can be heard speaking French.
We knew she spoke Dothraki and Ancient Valerian, but French? It got us wondering whether there were more celebrities we did't know about who could also speak la langue de Molière.
It turns out there are quite a few:
1. Emilia Clark
She may not exactly be fluent, but the few words she does attempt to pronounce were actually pretty good.
2. Gwyneth Paltrow
Gwyneth Paltrow can speak French pretty well, she even conducts interviews partly in French every once in awhile.
3. Hugh Jackman
Hugh Jackman freaked everyone out when he started speaking french during an interview for the movie X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
4. Bradley Cooper
Badley Cooper can not only speak French, he practically is French. He spent six months as an exchange student in France and his accent is pretty good too!
5. Elton John
It's unclear how or when the legendary Elton John learned how to speak French. Maybe he discovered what the rest of us knew already, that people who can speak French are automatically hotter.
6. Joseph Gordon-Levitt
Every 90's kid already knew J-Gords could speak French, it was a huge plot point in the movie: 10 things I hate about you.
7. Justin Bieber
We love that even though Canada is bilingual, people are still amazed when a Canadian can speak French.
8. John Malkovich
Of course he speaks French! there are a lot of things you can assume about John Malkovich juts by looking at him. He probably has a fridge filled with rare cheeses, he most definitely owns at least one tiger, and he's likely the leader of his own secret cult.
9. Emma Watson
As if you needed another reason to love her.
10. Tom Hiddleston
If you're going to be a good trickster God like Tom Hiddleston, you might as well know several languages.
11. Natalie Portman
Not just French, Natalie can speak, German, Spanish and Japanese, and even Hebrew.
12. J.K. Rowling
What's disturbing about this is that she knew exactly how weird the name "Hermione Granger" would sound in French, yet she kept the character name anyways.
13. Johnny Depp
We assume that's how he managed to seduce Vanessa Paradis. Alternate theories include him saying "Hi, I'm johnny Depp".
14. John Travolta
John Travolta can do more than just dance and sport creepy haircuts. He can actually speak French pretty well too.
15. Antoni Porowski
Antoni Porowski was actually born in Montreal. He studied went to Concordia University and he grew up speaking Polish, English, and French.
