Juno Temple has always wanted to design lingerie and launch her own underwear line.

The British star is known for roles in films such as Atonement and walked away with the BAFTA rising star prize this year.

The 23-year-old may have shot to fame in the Hollywood industry but claims that fashion is another passion of hers.

“I used to live right next to Agent Provocateur in London and spent so much cash there,” Juno told UK magazine Look, adding that designing lacy pieces would be a dream for her.

Juno has been acting for years. She first found stardom thanks to her role as Lola Quincey in 2007’s Atonement and more recently appeared in Killer Joe. However, few know that Juno started off wanting to design. The actress was accepted into the London College of Fashion but put it aside to pursue her acting career instead. Her desire to create clothing for women still stays with the young actress.

“I think being a woman is really powerful,” Juno explained. “We’re lucky with what we get given, so being able to dress that in sexy, beautiful ways is interesting to me.”

The red-haired star is often praised for her stylish outfits both on and off the red carpet. However, the British actress is not immune to critics, having received harsh comments about some of her fashion choices.

“I’ve had a few,” Juno answered when asked if she had suffered from a fashion crime before. She added that she is lucky she will not have to see cruel comments about her on the Internet.

“I’m technology phobic,” Juno joked.
