He’s famous for playing some of the most iconic and amazing roles in Hollywood, and he’s a very talented actor. His mother is German, in fact, she was there when the World War II bombing raid occurred. Because she is German and her heritage is important to her – and she is very close with her son as evidenced by the fact that she is often his date on the red carpet – she taught her son to speak German. He’s now a fluent German-speaking actor who spends a great deal of time conversing with his mother in her native language.
