In an interview to promote her new sci-fi film Equals (a story about a futuristic society forced to suppress emotions for fear of death—dramatic, right?), Kristen Stewart speaks candidly on a few topics that pretty much prove she's just like the rest of us. 

Yes, she still has lingering feelings for her first love. (We've all been there.) Yes, she has bad days. (Who doesn't?) And yes, three years after the Twilight saga ended, she's still got mad love for Bella Swan. (SAME.) In short, a celebrity has never been more relatable.
