Katherine Heigl shows off French skills at Paris premiere

Katherine Heigl thrilled the audience at the Paris premiere of her new movie One For The Money on Tuesday night (31Jan12) by showing off her French-language skills on stage.

The actress is in Europe promoting her latest film and she attended a red carpet screening in France, signing autographs and posing for pictures with fans outside the Gaumont Marignan Champs Elysees theatre.

Heigl stepped onstage at the venue to introduce her movie - and stunned the crowd by speaking in French.

In a post on her Twitter.com page, she writes, "Pretty nervous last night trying to speak in French to the audience. Did my best - hope I wasn't really, really bad!"

But her flare for languages impressed the audience, with one crowd member posting on Heigl's website, "Thanks for the speech in French, your French is good!"
