Before he gained notoriety in Hollywood, Boris Kodjoe spent his adolescent years in the south of Germany before relocating to America at the age of 19. And although he experienced difficulty adjusting to American culture, the “Real Husbands of Hollywood” star mastered the language and recently admitted that he still speaks fluent German during an appearance on the “Arsenio Hall Show” .
“That’s all I do. I speak it at home with my kids. They speak three languages,” he revealed. “When I first came here it was a struggle because people would talk to me and they would assume that I was from here and I would have no idea what they were saying.”
“So women would come up to me and tell me that they wanted to rock my world, and I was like, ‘Thank you! Thank you very much! Rock the world…’”
