    Well, you know, he used a little bit of Spanish in "All The Pretty Horses", so it's not like he's coming from zero knowledge.

    But he went to Spanish language school as a teen, learned Spanish in high school, and has been learning with Lucy for years. He's probably pretty fluent but won't admit it. In a Santo Domingo dinner a few years ago, he was said to be fluent.

    A quote from a recent interview: "I speak very little. I can speak quite well, and it's good when traveling , but I cannot interchange ideas, and it's there where I lose myself."
