Juno Temple: Family are everything

Juno Temple

Juno Temple says having her family's support has helped her acting career.

The 23-year-old actress is taking Hollywood by storm and has a string of high-profile blockbuster movies in the pipeline. The most recent acknowledgement of her acting talent was scooping the BAFTA Rising Star award at this year's ceremony, during which she mentioned her brother Felix in her acceptance speech.

"My parents have been extraordinary with me," Juno told Look magazine about her family. "[They] keep me grounded. I go back and forward to London and LA [where she currently lives]. My family are in the UK, so it'll always be my home. I take PG Tips [British tea] with me wherever I go."

The actress has had huge success in her career, including starring in Atonement alongside Keira Knightley. She is also appearing alongside Angelina Jolie in upcoming Disney film Maleficent which is due for release in March 2014.

Juno believes she is doing well in part because she can turn on her emotions easily, and has no difficulty crying on set.

"I'm an emotional rollercoaster - I cry when I burn toast," she admitted. "I'm a weeper! [I turn on the tears by] thinking of things that have made me sad. I go to some weird place."
