"Conceal, don't feel:" a phrase made popular by the fictional Elsa from Frozen but which still applies to our modern day society. Being in public, people are expected to keep control of their emotions. If you show any excess of feeling you'll cause a scene, particularly if you're crying. Anyone who has cried in public knows how embarassing it can be: having random strangers watching you, looking uncomfortable, not knowing what to do as you try to control your tears.

Now imagine if instead of just a handful of people who happen to be around, the whole world was watching you cry and judging you. Such is the life of a celebrity; yes, it can be tough. However, sometimes celebrities breaking down and crying in front of their fans can do their reputation some good, as it makes them seem more approachable, more human. The following is a list of 10 celebrities who broke down on TV.
