During her appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday, Keira, 33, revealed her young daughter Edie isn't allowed to watch Cinderella and The Little Mermaid because she believes they aren't independent women.

Keira Knightley has a very good reason for banning certain Disney movies in her home. Now she wants to be a lion. "I'm quite a feminist myself and hope my daughter learns her values and self worth from me rather than the influences of Disney Princesses", she told HuffPost UK.

Not all Disney movies are off-limits.

"Cinderella, banned because she just waits around for a rich guy to rescue her", Knightley says in the interview. "Don't. Rescue yourself, obviously. I mean the songs are great, but do not give up your voice up for a man!" said the Oscar nominee.

"The Little Mermaid", which the actress actually admitted she liked because of the music, got the "X" because of how Ariel "gives up her voice for a man".

Ligato attended Wednesday's Medal of Honor ceremony and said all he could do was sit back and smile. Several times, he carried wounded Marines to safety, despite being wounded himself.

"Frozen is huge. Moana, totally fine", said Knightley, also throwing in Finding Dory in the mix, which Ellen was ver happy to hear! Hello! But the problem with The Little Mermaid is - I love The Little Mermaid!

The essay, which was dedicated to her daughter, also touched on the double standard applied to male and female actors: "I turn up on time, word ideal, with ideas and an opinion". Ellen asked. "Would you like that or does it matter to you if she wants to be in this business?"

English actress Keira Knightley is setting limits on her daughter's viewing habits.

For Halloween, her little girl wants to be a witch, which Knightley humorously described as "boring" and "dull, but cute".
