Michelle Dockery cried when she met Taylor Swift.
The 'Non Stop' actress took her godchildren to see the 'Love Story' singer and couldn't help but to get emotional at how excited they were when they got to meet singer afterward.
She said: "The last time I cried? My Godchildren went to see Taylor Swift in concert and got to meet her. They literally ran toward her and hugged her, and it was amazing. I got big bonus points for it. I'll remind them when they're teenagers."
Besides weeping with joy, the 32-year-old actress - best known for her role as Lady Mary Crawley in 'Downton Abbey' - was...

Michelle Dockery gets star-struck all the time.

2013 Emmys Worst Dressed: Heidi Klum's Neck Brace Dress, Lena Dunham's Floral Disaster, More

Heidi Klum
One of the reasons people watch the Emmy Awards (besides cheering on their favorite shows) is to see the fashion. And although we like to get a glimpse of the stars walk the red carpet in their glamorous gowns, we really love to see their fashion missteps.

"Project Runway" host and "America's Got Talent" judge Heidi Klum usually has a keen eye for fashion. But her red Versace gown didn't quite work on Sunday night.

There is such a thing as too many sequins, and the neck brace-like top of her dress looked odd. She resembled a showgirl more than a supermodel.

Other celebs also made some fa...

Eric Bana
Eric Bana feared hypothermia while filming new movie Hanna in freezing Finland.

The Aussie star admits he wasn't used to the big freeze he experienced when he arrived on set for the action thriller - and he only hoped medics would recognise the symptoms of hypothermia before they took hold on him and the rest of the cast.

He tells WENN, "The cold in Finland was something else, but we were well looked after. The funniest thing was we got a memo about how to diagnose hypothermia in your co-worker, because apparently it's easier to diagnose it in someone else rather than yourself.

'Hanna' Usurps 'Arthur' At Weekend Box Office

April 12th, 2011 8:40am EDT
Russell Brand has been robbed of a one-two at the top of the box office thanks to a recount of the weekend estimates.

The British funnyman was expected to start the week with family film "Hop" and new comedy "Arthur" at number one and number two, respectively, but he has been upset by a teenage assassin.

Irish actress Saoirse Ronan's "Hanna" has leapfrogged Arthur for the number two spot on the countdown, behind Hop.

The official figures show "Hanna" has a revised $12.4 million opening take - $200,000 more than Brand's remake.
