Crying is something that we all do, but it is something that is generally reserved for certain occasions like births, marriage and funerals. Not if your name is Michelle Dockery though, as the Downton Abbey actress admitted to getting all emotional and shedding a tear when her Godchildren got to meet Taylor Swift of all people!
Dockery, 32, is best known for her character Lady Mary Crawley in the award winning period drama Downton Abbey, a character that rarely shows her emotions. Speaking to People Magazine Dockery was asked when she last cried to which she replied, “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.”
Dockery was also quick to point out that she had cried recently when she accidentally dropped a knife onto her foot. She said, “I’m not accident prone really, but I was cutting something and sort of lost control, and it went through my big toe. There was a lot of blood and I nearly fainted, but its totally fine now.”
Crying when you drop a knife onto your foot is fine Michelle, but we are not sure if crying in front of Taylor Swift at 32 is something you want the world to know about, even if it was tears of joy!
