Celebrities, you know, the people beautiful people, often wind up in tears on television. Maybe they're performing a particularly gripping scene. Perhaps they're in the midst of an emotional breakdown during an Oprah or Barbara Walters interview. Or there's always the possibility that they're on a reality series, all of which generally feature one good cry per segment.

And now, thanks to the power of the Internet, these tear-shedding, lip-quivering moments have all been caught, captured and turned into GIFS.

From Homeland's Claire Danes to James Van Der Beek, have a laugh at (the expense of) some of the ugliest celebrity criers.
