A longstanding stereotype about Hollywood actors is that they're all looks and no substance. It's only fair that some of the richest and most attractive men in the world should be pretty inept in the brains department, right?

Wrong. Well, at least for these few guys.

Not only are they rich and famous, these male celebrities are also at least bilingual. And seeing them speak in languages other than English is sure to make you swoon, if you weren't already. Put your bibs on and get ready to drool.

1. Tom Hiddleston

Here's Tom Hiddleston speaking fluent French in that same velvety voice you know and love.

2. Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp learned to speak French to keep up with ex-partner Vanessa Paradis, but his linguistic skills stuck around well past that relationship.

3. Ben Affleck

Always looking to improve himself, our future Batman kept up with his Spanish lessons well after high school and can still carry a pretty impressive conversation.

3. Paul Wesley

Paul Wesley's parents are Polish, and they certainly didn't skimp on the lessons of the language.

5. Edward Norton

Who knew! Edward Norton headed to Osaka after graduating from Yale and picked up enough comfort with Japanese to show you up at parties.

6. Bradley Cooper

Ahhh, Cooper. Your French brilliance knows no bounds. Fun fact: there are plenty of videos of Bradley Cooper speaking French on the internet, and they are all worth seeking out and watching.

If you still haven't gotten enough, Buzzfeed assembled an even longer list of celebrities with serious language skills, so head on over there to yearn for these guys more than ever before.
