Keira Knightley, in a dress from designer Mary Katrantzou, and Michael Fassbender were up early for a photo call during the Venice Film Festival today on behalf of their movie A Dangerous Method. They joined director David Cronenberg as well as costars Viggo Mortensen, Sarah Gadon, and Vincent Cassel. Sarah also worked with David over the Summer on his next movie, Cosmopolis, with Robert Pattinson. The Knightley-Fassbender-Mortensen movie is one of the most anticipated offerings at Venice, and, according to certain bookies, has odds stacked in its favor to win the top prize, the Golden Lion, at the festival. Michael stars as famous psychiatrist Carl Jung and Viggo, another frequent Cronenberg collaborator, as Sigmund Freud, and they have to deal with personal issues once they encounter a troubled young patient played by Keira. There's even more Michael hotness to come this evening at their premiere, and he'll be out again in a few days doing press duties for his Steve McQueen movie Shame with cast-mate Carey Mulligan. All the movie making has left Michael feeling grateful for the work. Michael Fassbender said of his career in a recent interview, "It’s crazy that I’ve worked with the people I have, that I’m actually allowed to earn a living out of it. I’ve always thought you mustn’t live your life where at the end of it you go, 'oh God, I didn’t do that because I was worried about what other people might think of me.’"
