Downton Abbey star Michelle Dockery has revealed she pretends to be a wealthy American when fans pester her in the US.

The actress says she adopted the persona as she used to be nervous when people approached her.

Dockery, 32, admits she tells them she is ‘rich Britney from Beverly Hills’ who happens to look like her character Lady Mary Crawley in the ITV series.

‘It’s a silly spoof but it passes the time. We’re always sending ourselves up,’ she told Radio Times.

She admitted she was initially nervous of strangers approaching her, but said she finds it ‘quite easy to accept’ now.

When in doubt, wear Oscar de la Renta.

The designer specialised in beautiful, elegant, red-carpet dresses. And Hollywood’s A-list knew it.

Every awards season, his full skirted glamorous gowns stole the show. Show-stopping, but never showy.

Worn by celebrities and First Ladies alike, from Rihanna to Amy Adams, from Jackie Kennedy to Michelle Obama, De la Renta was the go-to label for the big occasion.

And as for how to wear his dresses, you can’t get better than this gem from the man himself: ‘Walk like you have three men walking behind you.’

Downton Abbey season 5: Episode 6

A very good hair day (Picture: ITV1)

Oh dear! Poor Edith (which is officially her name) has really had a terrible time in season five of Downton Abbey but episode six saw her reach breaking point and finally make a decision to make herself happy for once.

With only two episodes of this series to go it was time for a few more stories to be focussed on…

What happened in the house?

We finally got to hear the fate of Michael Gregson as Edith received a guest from London who disclosed that he was indeed dead – murdered by Hitler’s gang of thugs in Munich but ‘they’ve found what’s left of him’. Grim.

His lover inherited his publishing company but distraught at the news Edith decided to take her leave of the Abbey for good. She told Tom before she left she couldn’t stay if she was ‘never going to be…

7 Bad Dating Tips From Literature

Featured Image -- 4470

Originally posted on 101 Books:

When I was single, I hated dating—which is probably why I didn’t do much of it. There are so many unspoken rules, and girls play games, and it’s enough to make you want to become a celibate monk. Okay, it’s not quite that bad.

Fortunately, I was lucky enough to find the right girl, and the rest is history.

But even though my “game” probably sucked, I knew some common rules of dating. I mean, the really, really basic do’s and don’ts.

The same can’t be said for some of these characters from literature. These guys and girls really knew how to screw up some relationships.

Here’s the type of advice they might give you based on their stories.
