Despite his next role at Disney The Nutcracker, Actress Keira Knightley says she does not always allow her daughter to join the princess' fun.
In an interview with Ellen DeGeneres, the 33-year-old actress explained her aversion to some of Disney's princess movies. The question? The way in which women are portrayed in films like Cinderella, which Knightley says is forbidden in his house because the princess "waits for a rich man to rescue her."
"Do not do it Rescate, obviously," Knightley said.
Even The little Mermaid – what Knightley admits is his favorite: it's forbidden for Edie, 3 years old. "I mean, the songs are great, but do not give up your voice for a man," he told DeGeneres.
As for the career aspirations of Edie, Knightley's son and English musician James Righton, Knightley says that no road is forbidden. "I'm going to support her in whatever she wants to do, of course," he said.
Knightley's passionate opinion on the feminist themes surrounding the princesses' plots is not a surprise, as she recently contributed an essay on how to give birth to the book Feminists do not use pink and other lies. Her activism can also be seen in her art, as she plays the self-titled role of Gabrielle Colette in this year's biopic. Colette, which tells the story of a writer whose husband makes her publish a work under his name.
