Actress Charlize Theron plans to learn Spanish / Die Schauspielerin Charlize Theron will endlich Sprachunterricht nehmen und Spanisch lernen

Tuesday, March 10, 2009

Nacida en Benoni el 7 de Agosto de 1975, Gauteng, República de Sudáfrica, reside en Los Ángeles, California. Su lengua materna es el afrikáans y su segunda lengua el inglés.

I wasn't sure who this actress was until I saw that she was in The Devil's Advocate. Now I remember. By chance I happened upon an article in German here about the subject, which I've roughly translated.
The actress Charlize Theron will finally take speaking lessons and learn Spanish. That was suggested(?) in the word on her newest film, "The Burding Plain". The director of the film, Guillermo Arriaga, is Mexican and taught Charlize during the shooting the most common swear words in Spanish.

Swearing is fun, but it can only carry you so far. Since the 33 year-old has been living in California for eight years where a large number of the residents speak Spanish, she now intends to seriously tackle the matter.
It turns out that she was also born in South Africa, and Afrikaans was her first language. Here she is speaking a bit of it:

She apparently also speaks Afrikaans on the phone in a scene in the movie 15 Minutes.
