Modern Family's Sarah Hyland has said that Taylor Swift is one the most amazing people she has ever met.

The actress told, "She's just the most down-to-earth person. She just seems like a really true friend, and it's just really great to meet people in this industry [like her].

"A lot of people I've met have a preconceived idea [of her], at least from tabloids, but she's one of the most amazing people I've ever met."

Hyland was seen hanging out with her friend Swift at the Golden Globes on Sunday night along with fellow actress Hailee Steinfeld who is a close friend of the Begin Again hitmaker.
