11 Celebrities Who Speak Another Language. You Won’t Believe Who Speaks Perfect Spanish!

OK, I’m always surprised when people just pop off and start talking fluently in another language.

But it’s SUPER surprising when a celebrity does it.

The latest celebrity to wow audiences with their grasp of another language is Boston’s own Ben Affleck, who showed he was fluent Spanish during a recent interview for a radio network in Spain.

I guess fans are calling him “Benito” now. Cute.

Anyway,  The Oscar-winning actor, 50, got an A-grade for his  ‘excellent pronunciation and flow’ as he spoke with La Cadena SER about new movie “Air”.

Apparently, Ben got his loco Spanish skills when he was just 13 years old and filming in Mexico for a year.

He told Kelly Clarkson on her show back in 2020:

“I speak it passively. I did this little kids TV series when I was young and when I was 13, the season that year was (shot) in Mexico, so I was in Mexico for a year and that’s how I picked it up.”

The clip is below. But if you don’t speak Spanish, this is what he’s saying:

‘The important thing to understand is that this is not Michael Jordan’s story, and Michael Jordan also does not appear in the movie.

‘He’s so big, so important, so magnificent – there’s not an actor in the world who could lead the audience to believe, Look, it’s Michael Jordan.

‘Immediately, they are going to think, ‘All of this is s***. It’s a s*** movie. I don’t believe it.’ And it destroys (the movie) entirely.

Blown away!

I haven’t been this impressed since Bradley Cooper broke out in fluent French. (See below). But Ben and Bradley aren’t the only celebrities who speak another language.
