“Rie was an amazing dance teacher, I think it’s actually AN amazing thing for a young woman because you’re growing up, figuring out your body, working it out… she’s so sensual about the human female body and she said that each moment where you kind of strike a sexy pose, it should feel like a stretch for you so it was a great experience learning to do all that. Very nerve wracking when I had to do it on camera but she was there and she was really supportive”. - Juno Temple on Afternoon Delight
