I love American Ballet Theatre soloist Misty Copeland. In fact, I'm a little bit obsessed. Not only is she a stunning technician and performer (and holy cow look at her bod!), but she just seems so real. Like the best friend (right, Misty?) that you can stay up talking with for hours.

Now, as part of a new Diet Dr. Pepper campaign, a series of videos featuring the real, one-of-a-kind Misty have been released—and she's every bit as down to earth as I've always imagined her. Check 'em out:
