The pic debuted in the Premieres section of the Sundance Film Festival.

The 32-year-old actress rocked a tuxedo to the premiere to the premiere of her latest flick Colette on Saturday as she made her first public appearance since the claims.

'I don't really do films set in the modern-day because the female characters almost always get raped, ' she said.

Alongside Keira at the photo shoot were her dashing costar and director, Dominic West and Wash Westmore. He takes all the credit, while she struggles to be recognized for her work. The drama revolves around a young country woman who marries a famous literary entrepreneur in turn-of-the-century Paris: At her husband's request, Colette pens a series of bestselling novels published under his name.

Keira's appearance comes days after she hit out at the "culture" of "silencing and bullying women" in Hollywood.

The actress told Variety last week: 'In my personal life, when I've been in bars, I can count four times when I've been assaulted in a minor way'.

The Pirates of the Caribbean star, 32, spoke out in praise of the #MeToo movement and said the film industry tolerated the idea that men "are allowed to behave in different ways than women". It's not just actresses.

'I'm not talking about rape, but I'm talking about the people who had been grabbed in pubs or their breasts had been fondled by somebody they didn't know or they'd had someone shove a hand up their skirt'.

In the first major deal on the ground at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival, Bleecker Street and 30WEST teamed on a mid-seven figure USA rights pact for Colette, the Wash Westmoreland-directed film that stars Keira Knightley, Dominic West, Fiona Shaw, Denise Gough, Elinor Tomlinson, and Aiysha Hart.

Taking on meaningful roles!
