The 'Westworld' actress walked the red carpet at Los Angeles Microsoft Theatre on Monday (17.09.18) with the activist - who created the Sexual Assault Survivors' Bill of Rights - because she's determined to use her high profile "for good".

She said: "I think we're at a crucial time in history right now, especially for women and civil rights. If I have even a little bit of power, I'm going to use it for good.

"I'm here to also support ACLU and families separated at the border. It's what I'm compelled to do. Amand is certainly someone who has inspired me to do more."

And Amanda, who "connected" with the 31-year-old beauty at the Women's March - expressed her gratitude to the 'Wrestler' actress for taking her to the event.

She said: "Thank you Evan for lending my your platform for us to fight for survivors of civil rights, I'm so grateful and so are my team."

When it comes to her own work and activism commitments, Evan - who has a five-year-old son with ex-husband Jamie Bell - knows it is important to "tap out" and take the time to care for herself.

She told E! News: "You have to plan for self-care and you have to know when to tap out. I love it. I've seen the impact that it's had on people. I love the people I work with, being creative and inspired, moving progress forward through art, through pushing the boundaries and change and being slightly out there... That's how I've always been."

And Evan urged fans looking to her for advice and support to love themselves and appreciate how strong they really are.

She said: "Just make sure you take care of yourself and love yourself first. That is the foundation of everything. If you have that, you can get through anything.

"I think we're all stronger than we realise. People have an infinite amount of strength in them. It's there. Be bold and mighty forces will come to your aid."
