Think Ryan Phillippe is pronounced Phil-eep, or Phil-ee-pay? You’re wrong.
Think Amanda Seyfried is said Say-freed or Sigh-fried? Nup, sit down. You’re wrong again.
If you get a little bit embarrassed when you’re chatting with your friends and trying to impress them with your celebrity knowledge, yet aren’t really sure how to pronounce ‘Delevingne‘ (or spell it, for that matter), you should probably just stop talking and NEVER SPEAK AGAIN.
All you really need is a lesson in Celebrity 101 – Name Pronunciation.
So let’s get into it then, shall we?
Starting off, we have the beautiful Amanda Seyfried, pictured above.
Sey.fried | sigh-frid |
A very talented actress with perfect hair.
Amanda Seyfried’s boobs can tell when it’s raining.
Got it? Good, now let’s move on. Cara Delevingne. Hard to spell, even harder to attempt to pronounce, as exhibited by some intoxicated celebrities at the Met Gala. (We’re looking at you, Reese Witherspoon).
Del.e.vingne | del-ah-veen |
A genetically blessed supermodel with the world’s best eyebrows.
Cara Delevingne’s eyebrow game is strong.
Bonus points if you could say it before reading this post! Next, we have Australia’s acting goddess Cate Blanchett.
It should be easy to pronounce, no? Well no, it’s not. We’ve been saying it wrong since before she came on our radar.
Blan.chett | blan-chit |
Australia’s most famous actress who loves calling out the media on red carpets.
Is Cate Blanchett going to the Oscars? Can’t wait to see what she says about body image this time.
