'Downton Abbey's' Michelle Dockery recalls funny fan encounter ... with the Rolling Stones
"Downton Abbey" star Michelle Dockery was on "Chelsea Lately" Thursday (Feb. 27) to promote her new movie, "Non-Stop," which co-stars Liam Neeson and Julianne Moore.
Above, Dockery regales host Chelsea Handler with a story from the set of how Moore would make fun of how massive Neeson is: "There he goes, texting away with his giant thumbs." Side note: Dockery does a killer Julianne Moore voice.
Dockery also had two very funny anecdotes about the Rolling Stones, who are big "Downton Abbey" fans.
Apparently, at the Met Gala, Mick Jagger came "straight over" to Dockery and co-star Laura Carmichael and just says, "Hello, I'm Mick." Dockery displays for Handler the huge grin she got on her face, totally star-struck, and says she rather disbelievingly said to him, "I know!"
She continues, "Ronnie Wood actually told Hugh Bonneville, who plays Robert, at some event they were at, he said that he's a big fan. ... It was the day after the episode when Sybil dies, the sister, and apparently he came in and just went, 'Shame about the girl, isn't it?'"
Hee. We really like imagining the Rolling Stones having "Downton Abbey" viewing parties.
