Keira Knightley showed some strategic skin last night at the BFI London Film Festival premiere of A Dangerous Method. The actress, decked out in Roksanda Ilincic, joined her costars Viggo Mortensen and Michel Fassbender on the red carpet along with their director, David Cronenberg. We were able to catch up with David and Michael at a recent NYC press day for the picture, which is out on Nov. 23. Michael said that he loves all the traveling his career requires at the moment, which is a good thing considering that he's been in NYC, San Sebastian, Toronto, and Venice during the last two months alone. He's doing double the jet-setting, since he has the Cronenberg film as well as Steve McQueen's Shame to chat up at festivals around the world.
The Dangerous Method reviews are so far mixed, but David is confident about his leading lady's work. At a press conference yesterday, David said he only wanted Keira to play the role of Sabina Spielrein. He said of Keira, "I think she's underrated as an actress. I took her seriously as an actress right from the first moment, and I was always looking forward to working with her, and I never offered this role to anybody else."
