Everyone knows the story of Cinderella. With the help of her Fairy Godmother, the young lady lands Prince Charming. It’s easily one of the best love stories around and has earned Disney millions. Unfortunately, one actress isn’t all that pleased with it.

On an episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Keira Knightley stopped by to promote The Nutcracker and the Four Realms. During the show, she started talking about her three year old daughter Edie.

When it comes to Cinderella, the actress blocks Edie from viewing it. “[Cinderella] waits around for a rich guy to rescue her. Don’t. Rescue yourself! Obviously,” she told Ellen.

That wasn’t the only Disney film that Knightley put on the “no watch” list. She also finds The Little Mermaid disheartening for how it depicts Ariel. “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,” she said.

The clip, which has over one million YouTube views, has fans giving their takes on this matter. The top comment stems from Luisa Costa, who says, “Instead of banning movies, couldn’t they watch them together and use the opportunity to discuss the decisions the characters made?”

You’re Not Alone

Knightley isn’t the only celebrity that has banned certain Disney films. Kristen Bell has strong issues with Snow White. “Don’t you think that it’s weird that the prince kisses Snow White without her permission? Because you can not kiss someone if they’re sleeping,” she told Parents Magazine.

Fortunately, both Knightley and Bell have both become strong role models of their own in Disney films. Knightley portrays pirate queen Elizabeth Turner in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. Bell is voicing one of Disney’s newest princesses as Frozen‘s Anna. With more empowering female roles coming up, Edie won’t struggle finding more suitable role models soon.
