Keira Knightley talks motherhood, Googling herself, at Colette premiere

ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION.

Keira Knightley brought her period biopic "Colette" to a wet London red carpet on Thursday (October 11), saying she felt "empowered" by the story of the French novelist who gave the film its name.

The 33-year old, known for other costume dramas including "The Duchess" and "Pride & Prejudice", portrays Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette during the early part of her life.

The story kicks off when she leaves her Burgundy village in late 19th century France to marry older writer Henry Gauthier-Villars, known as Willy.

Colette ghost-writes for him what becomes a successful and trend-setting novel, then pens several more under pressure from her husband.

The film follows Colette as she has gay love affairs and eventually fights Willy for the books' rights.

Knightley, who has a young daughter, made headlines this week after she penned an essay for book "Feminists Don't Wear Pink (And Other Lies)" talking about childbirth.

Some outlets accused her of criticising Prince William's wife Kate's polished looks coming out of hospital soon after labour.

"I think it's very interesting that certain parts of the media have ... misrepresented my meaning and exactly what I said," Knightley said.

"The comments that I made ... are completely about our culture that silences women's' truths and forces us all to hide and I absolutely didn't shame anybody in any way, in fact quite the opposite." The "Pirates of the Caribbean" actress was joined on the red carpet by her co-stars, including Dominic West, who described Colette and his character Willy as an "early exponent of the celebrity couples".

"They were the Kim (Kardashian) and Kanye (West) of their day and every party wasn't a party until Colette and Willy turned up," he said.

"Colette" which is screening at the BFI London Film Festival is scheduled for release in the United Kingdom in January 2019.
