Keira Knightley Talking About Disney Movies on Ellen 2018

Keira Knightley Has a Strict Parenting Rule About Disney Movies, and the Reason Why Is Spot-On

Keira Knightley might work in the movie business, but she has a strict rule about which films her daughter can and cannot watch. The 33-year-old Nutcracker and the Four Realms actress recently appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and shared which Disney movies she's decided to not let her 3-year-old daughter, Edie, watch just yet.

"Cinderella — banned — because she waits around for a rich guy to rescue her. Rescue yourself, obviously," said in explaining her parenting rule. The other movie that Keira has banned despite the fact that she herself loves it? The Little Mermaid. "The songs are great but do not give your voice up for a man, hello! I love The Little Mermaid so that ones a little tricky, but I'm keeping to it."

So, which Disney movies are allowed? "Frozen is huge. Moana is totally fine," said Keira. Of course, there's also Finding Nemo and Finding Dory, to which Ellen said, "There's nothing wrong with Dory!"
