They are popular. They are rich. They speak French. Here are a few celebrities who can confidently add ‘‘Spoken Languages: French’’ to their résumés along with their long list of accomplishments.

Sandra Oh

God I miss Christina in Grey’s Anatomy! And I have one more reason now that I know that Sandra Oh studied in Montreal, where she learned French. Bonus: she has the cutest québécois accent. See here by yourself!

Emma Watson

She definitely has all talents. She was born in Paris, where she was raised for her first 5 years, and speaks French quite well since then.

Emma Thompson

What is it with the Emmas and French? Maybe that’s because Emma Watson and her are British, a country close to France. This brilliant actress does not stop to surprise me.

Jodie Foster

The first time I heard Jodie Foster speak French in an interview on television, I was completely astonished! Her French is practically perfect, better than many whose mother tongue is French…

John Malkovich

The author of Harry Potter received the French Legion of Honour, France’s highest award, in 2009. No wonder the name of her villain is Voldemort, a name that, according to her, ‘‘evokes both power and exoticism’’. Hey, is that the impression you guys have of us, Francophones? ;)
