Charlize Theron wants to learn Spanish
Charlize Theron says she wants to start taking up Spanish classes. The 33-year-old worked with Mexican director Guillermo Arriaga on “The Burning Plain”, and the moviemaker helped improve her Spanish skills by teaching her a string of swear words.
Theron says, “Of course he taught me the dirty stuff! I had this fantasy, 'cos I've always wanted to learn Spanish, that I would learn Spanish before I shot the movie with him, that he would be really impressed with me, that
he could direct
me in Spanish but of course it never happened”
And the experience has made Theron realise that she needs to start taking Spanish language classes. She adds, “I'm really embarrassed to say that I don't speak Spanish, I've lived in California for eight years and I just think it should be a prerequisite, you should be able to speak Spanish if you live in California.”
Very international this girl. South African American. Named Esquire's Sexiest Woman Alive in 2007. In late 2008 she was asked to be a UN messenger of peace by the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon. And now she's learning Spanish…
A while back I saw Charlize being interviewed on Letterman.
