Keira Knightley Tells 'Ellen' Her Daughter Is Banned From Watching 'Little Mermaid' & 'Cinderella'!

Keira Knightley joins The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing on Tuesday (October 16), and gushes all about her 3-year-old daughter, Edie Knightley Righton!

The 33-year-old actress sat down with Ellen to discuss her role in the upcoming Disney film The Nutcracker and the Four Realms, and revealed that Edie isn’t allowed to watch a few animated classics – Cinderella and The Little Mermaid.

“Cinderella, banned because she waits around for a rich guy to rescue her,” Keira said. “Don’t. Rescue yourself, obviously. And this is the one that I’m quite annoyed about because I really like the film, but… Little Mermaid. I mean, the songs are great, but do not give your voice up for a man. Hello!”

Plus, Ellen surprises Keira with a lion costume with dentist accessories for Edie to wear on Halloween – Watch below!

    Do you have to be completely stupid and insane to be a great actress? Wait, this bimbo was never even a good actress

    I’m glad she’s teaching her daughter to be independent, but man, my whole childhood was built on those fairy tales. Cinderella, Little Mermaid, Sleeping Beauty, Mulan, Snow White, all of it! You can enjoy the movie and if you really want to, talk about the lessons you can learn from them. I guess do what you think is best for your kids though; it’s not my place to tell her how to raise her kids.

    First of all, at the age of 3 all they do is sing the songs. Second, I grew up watching these, and I’ve never taken away from the movies that I need to wait for someone to rescue me…rescue me from what? My loving friends and family and fulfilling career? Third – as long as she is taught to be independent, wtf does it matter if she watches beloved Disney moves that we all love??? Girl needs to lighten up.
