Keira Knightley explains decision to BAN daughter Edie, 3, from Disney classics

Keira Knightley has explained why she banned her daughter from watching the Disney classics Cinderella and Little Mermaid.

The actress, 33, who controversially revealed last month that she doesn’t allow Edie, 3, to watch the films because the female characters are ‘rescued by men’, detailed the plight of those specific characters further – admitting that it didn’t sit well with her.

Oozing glamour at The Nutcracker And The Four Realms premiere in London on Thursday, the star admitted that the likes of Frozen and Moana were ‘huge in her house’ and the strong leads of those films would have ‘words’ with other Disney princesses such as Ariel.

Keira revealed: ‘I love Frozen, I am 100% Team Frozen and Team Moana. Moana is big in our house, Inside Out is big in our house.

‘I just wonder what Elsa (Frozen) would say to Ariel (The Little Mermaid) and Cinderella because Elsa has some serious opinions about Anna (her sister in Frozen) going off with a guy that she’s only just met and saying she would marry him.

Clearly frustrated, she continued: ‘She’s is like “absolutely that is not OK” and in fact everyone in Frozen is not OK with that.

‘What would Elsa say to Ariel, who gives up her voice for a man? A man, by the way, she has only seen dance round a ship and then drown!

‘And it’s 100% amazing of Ariel to save the guy, I’m totally up for that, but what would Elsa make of that?

‘I think Elsa would be like, “Babe, you’ve got to get him know him better, don’t give up your voice yet”.’

‘Now she wants to a be a lion, she roars very well! Even if she wanted to be an actress, I’m going to support her in anything she wants to do.’

Her appearance comes after she revealed musician James, 35, has put his ‘life on hold’ to care for their daughter so she can work.

The former Klaxons star has put his ‘life on hold’ to care for their daughter so she can work.

Keira praised her ‘amazing’ spouse for taking time out from his music career to take on as many parenting duties as he can when it comes to looking after their three-year-old girl.

Speaking to OK! magazine, she said: ‘He has been amazing. He’s been travelling with me since we had her. He’s largely put his life on hold to make sure that I’m still at work and that we’re keeping together as a family unit.

‘I’m super lucky, I can afford child care. I have a wonderful nanny that has travelled with us as well. When she’s there, I feel completely safe that Edie is good. And my mum, whenever my husband can’t be there, has flown to wherever we are. 

Adding: ‘They say it takes a village to raise a child – it takes a village to keep a woman at work as well. But if that’s where she should be then everybody is very supportive and it’s possible.’
