Gwyneth Paltrow speaking French at a press conference.
Tom Hardy speaking French! At long last, evidence of Tom’s ability to speak French. Back in 2002, when asked (I presume) to conduct an interview in French he answered in French that he doesn’t feel comfortable speaking French. But I feel very comfortable with him speaking French! :D
He says it so rapidly but to me it sounds like he’s saying this: “Je regrette de vous informer mais je ne suis pas du tout satisfait quand je parle francais. Non!”
Anyone hearing something else?

Here, the actor can be heard saying “J’ai besoin de pratiquer,” “Oui, c’est vrai,” and “J’aime beaucoup Jules et Jim” mixed in with English words.
It’s uncertain and there are no actual sources that claim he speaks fluent French, but it’s pretty impressive, nonetheless.
American actress and singer Leighton Meester is fluent in French.
While filming the movie Monte Carlo with stars Selena Gomez and Katie Cassidy, in an interview she talked about how much she enjoyed France.
"They closed down the Musee Dorsay for us!" she says. She praised France for closing the Louvre museum and the Eiffel Tower at 3 o’clock in the morning for her film ("Monte Carlo") and how she loved going to Chanel boutique, naturellement, on Rue Cambon.
"We shot in Paris and we shot in Monte Carlo. My last day was jumping into the sea all day and speaking French. It was amazing."
In these two videos, she showcases her French language ability. For a radio show, she spoke to fans in French and in a low quality (apologies) episode of Gossip Girl.
