These days, our knowledge of celebrities too often originates with paparazzi images and snarky quotes by anonymous "insiders." After a while, it's easy to forget that stars are real people. That's why HuffPost Celebrity decided to launch its all-new #nofilter quick-fire question and answer series. Because how well do you know someone until they've shared their guiltiest pleasures?

Minka Kelly cares about matters of the heart in more ways than one.

The beautiful actress, 32, teamed up with Diet Coke for "The Heart Truth" campaign, meant to draw attention to heart health. As part of the campaign, millions of Diet Coke packages will feature the hashtag #ShowYourHeart, encouraging fans to upload and share heart-inspired photos.

All through February, each photo tagged on Twitter and Instagram with #ShowYourHeart will send a $1 donation from Diet Coke to the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health, in support of women's heart health research programs.

But Minka's involvement with the ultra-important cause doesn't end there. The actress, best known for her role on the beloved "Friday Night Lights," will don a gorgeous red gown designed by Oscar de la Renta for the annual Red Dress Collection Fashion Show Wednesday in New York City.

In between stealing our hearts and saving them, the Diet Coke ambassador was generous enough to take the time to answer our most burning questions:

Do you eat only certain colored M&Ms?
No, of course not. I don’t discriminate. I see no color.
