Keira Knightley Won’t Let Her Daughter Watch These Disney Movies For One Very Good Reason


Chatting on the Ellen Show, the star revealed that she was concerned about some of the outdated messages the films have, telling Ellen DeGeneres: “Cinderella: banned. Because she waits around for a rich guy to rescue her. Don’t! Rescue yourself, obviously.” She admitted that The Little Mermaid was also banned, adding: “This is the one that I’m quite annoyed about because I really like the film …I mean, the songs are great, but do not give your voice up for a man, hello! I love The Little Mermaid, so that’s a tricky one, but I’m keeping to it.”

However, little Edie is still allowed to watch more recent Disney flicks, as the Pirates of the Caribbean star explained: “Finding Dory is a big favourite in our house. Frozen is huge; Moana is totally fine. There are some great ones.” People have had a mixed reaction to Keira’s interview, with one person writing: “I watched all the Disney films when I was younger and it hasn’t made me want to wait around for a man to save me! I think these celebs have the issues not their poor children,” while another added: “You could let her watch them all and make her own decisions. I know she’s young, but still.”
