Juno Temple Doesn’t Go to Bed Without Putting on Perfume

The actress has been spending time immersed in everything from Gloria Steinem and the Gun Club to the Magnetic Fields and NPR, as she reveals in her culture diet.


The actress Juno Temple has been quite busy in the last year. No less than Woody Allen and James Franco have already tapped her for their upcoming films, and Franco even asked her to star in a short for his new company EBS. One of 10 in a series by Elysium Bandini Studios in tribute to the charity Art of Elysium’s honoree Stevie Wonder, “Harmony” stars Temple as a frizzy-haired, short-tempered teen who can’t seem to stop fighting with her roommate, Alicia Witt—an interpretation of Wonder’s “Signed, Sealed, Delivered.” On her own, Temple’s been listening to the Gun Club—a dose of psychobilly she’s looking forward to balancing out with the Magnetic Fields, as she tells us in her culture diet.
