On empathizing with even her wildest characters:
Juno Temple: There’s a phrase that folks all the time say, “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger,” which I really don’t totally consider in. However a model of it which, to me, makes much more sense [is], “What doesn’t kill you makes you attention-grabbing at events,” as a result of typically you undergo issues that make you actually fragile and make you laborious on your self and make you not need to get up. However, typically reliving it may be probably the most attention-grabbing means of really coping with it and speaking about it. It doesn’t essentially imply that you just’ve gotten stronger. It simply signifies that inside speaking about it, you’re understanding it, I assume. Any battle that you just undergo, whether or not or not it’s in your private life or in a piece state of affairs, it’s about understanding it so you’ll be able to empathize with it, proper?
On getting acknowledged after Ted Lasso:
It’s an attention-grabbing expertise as a result of I’m fearful of the thought of turning into a family identify or being a universally recognizable particular person simply because I’m very personal about quite a lot of issues, except I’m assembly you one-on-one, then I’m an open e book. I feel you’ll be able to study so much from that. However, I feel issues may be misconstrued after they’re taken by the lots. That’s all the time been fairly terrifying to me as a result of additionally, then, it’s more durable to be a chameleon, to be Frances McDormand or Cate Blanchett, two actresses that I simply suppose are extraordinary. Really, once I take into consideration them, they aren’t being talked about except there’s a mission that they need to be speaking about. I acknowledge them in something that they are popping out in on my TV or cinemas, but I neglect that it’s them once I’m watching a film. So, the power to do this is one thing that I attempt for.
