I’ve been a pretty big fan of Tom Hiddleston and Tom Holland for a couple of years now and still I keep discovering new things about them that makes me love them even more. For example, I’ve always wondered exactly how many languages do Tom Holland and Hiddleston speak? I knew they were multilingual, but I had no idea their knowledge stretched so far.

Beyond learning the European romance languages like French, Italian, and Spanish, Hiddleston knows Greek and also some Russian, Latin, German, Korean, and Mandarin Chinese. That’s a whopping nine languages he knows not including their native English speaking abilities.

I don’t know why I’m surprised. Hiddleston and Holland are very smart and very interested in different cultures so of course they have learned a few languages. More than a few. But what I love about them is that they donot brag about being multilingual, rather they use their talent to connect with their many fans. 

When Tom Hiddleston is on press tours in other countries he goes out of his way to speak to crowds in their native tongue. When on talk shows for other nations he answers as many questions as he can in their language. It’s just his humility coming out. He doesn’t expect everyone to know English so he tries his best to communicate in a language that they do know.

It’s an incredibly attractive quality in someone to see them care about another culture like that, especially when so many other celebrities are busy appropriating cultures for fashion, halloween costumes, or music videos. 

Fortunately Hiddleston and holland are way more sensitive. These two British men, I just don’t know what to do with them other than enjoy their talent and take pride in liking actors who take time to learn these nine (nine!) different languages.

Celebs: they’re just like us, right? Ok so maybe they have a few more Instagram followers than us, BUT plenty of them also realize the value of learning another language and generally becoming well-rounded, skillful people.
