5 Actor Names You’re Probably Mispronouncing


Do you know how to pronounce these famous actor names? Read more from Reader's Digest.

Ralph Fiennes

It's not Ralf, it's Rafe Fines. You might recognize him as Lord Voldemort in the Harry Potter films but he's also a two-time Oscar nominee for The English Patient and Schindler's List.

Amanda Seyfried 

It's not Amanda Siegfried or Amanda Say-fried, it's Amanda SIGH-frid. You'll recognize her from Mean Girls and you've probably heard her sing in Les Miserables and Mamma Mia!

Chiwetel Ejiofor

Let's jump right in: it's CHOO-ih-tell EDGE-ee-oh-for. You've seen this Oscar-nominated actor in 12 Years a Slave and he's voicing Scar in the 2019 remake of Disney's The Lion King (watch the 1994 classic!).

Demi Moore

It's not DEM-ee, it's Duh-MEE. You've seen her in Ghost and Indecent Proposal. And she's the voice of gypsy girl Esmerelda in Disney's The Hunchback of Notre Dame!

Lindsay Lohan

It seems like you'd say LOW-han but you ought to say LOW-en. This natural redhead appeared in the 1998 Disney remake of The Parent Trap, Mean Girls and Freaky Friday.
