Nicole Kidman ruled the red carpet at the London Film Festival premiere of her new film, having spoken out about frequent collaborator Harvey Weinstein earlier in the week.

The Oscar-winning actress made her first public appearance since allegations about the movie mogul came to light at the premiere of The Killing of a Sacred Deer on Thursday night.

Kidman was joined on the red carpet at the film festival’s headline gala by co-star Colin Farrell and fellow A-lister Emma Stone.

Having received rave reviews at the Cannes film festival earlier in the year, Yorgos Lanthimos screened his twisted psychological horror for London audiences at the biggest gala premiere of the week.

While a host of stars have walked the red carpet in London this week, including Annette Bening, Anya Taylor-Morris and Claire Foy, this year’s film festival has been over-shadowed by talk of the Weinstein allegations.

Kidman, who has frequently worked with Weinstein, released a statement in support of sexual abuse victims on Tuesday.

While she didn’t name Weinstein directly, the actress said that sexual harassment “in the workforce” needed to be eradicated.

“As I’ve stated before publicly, I support and applaud all women and these women who speak out against any abuse and misuse of power — be it domestic violence or sexual harassment in the workforce,” she told People Magazine. “We need to eradicate this behaviour.”

Actresses including Angelina Jolie, Ashley Judd, Gwyneth Paltrow and Cara Delevingne have all accused the disgraced producer of sexual harassment.
