A Dangerous Method premiered yesterday in London. Keira Knightley, who plays Russian psychoanalyst Sabina Spielrein in the film, appeared at the event looking totally stunning. The 26-year-old actress wore an unusual Roksanda Ilincic dress in black-and-white color scheme. The dress was demure enough but it did reveal just the right amount of flesh with a cross-my-heart wrap top detail.
Keira Knightley was joined by the film’s director David Cronenburg and her co-stars Viggo Mortensen and Michael Fassbender on the red carpet.
A Dangerous Method is about the relationship between psychoanalysts Carl Jung (Fassbender) and Sigmund Freud (Mortensen). And Sabina Spielrein has an affair with Jung.
In an interview about the movie Keira Knightly said it was not easy for her to play a few steamy scenes as she knew her pictures would be all over the web. But she agreed and had to drink some vodka to have the courage to play her role.
I did a couple of shots of vodka – definitely – beforehand, and then a couple of glasses of champagne as a celebration of never having to do that again.”
When I first read the script, I thought, the script was fascinating, and it’s David, and I really want to work with David, but I read those two scenes and just went: “I don’t think that I can do that,” particularly because it’s the age of the internet; it’s gonna be everywhere. I phoned him up to really turn it down. I said to him, “Look, I love you, I love the script, I love the character, but I really don’t know that I can play those scenes. He said, “Look, if I’m gonna do them, then they’re gonna be clinical; they’re not gonna be sexy, they’re not gonna be voyeuristic in that way. And I thought, “Okay, well I can understand that. As long as it’s clinical and it’s not some, sort of, weird sexy spanking thing.”‘
A Dangerous Method is released in the US on November 23.
