Werner Herzog's answer to how many languages he can speak turns dark

Interviewer: "How many languages do you speak, Werner?"

Herzog: "Not too many. Spanish, English, German." (also modern Greek, Latin, ancient Greek, Italian). "I do understand French but I refuse to speak it. It's the last thing I'd ever do. You can only get some French out of me with a gun pointed at my head, or something like that, then I would speak French. That actually happened to me."
