Keira Knightley ‘banned’ these beloved fairy tales for her 3-year-old daughter
Keira Knightley is curating a very specific library for her 3-year-old daughter Edie – and, no, Cinderella is not invited.
“I’m being very careful about fairy tales with my kid because I don’t like the message that a lot of them have,” the “Colette” star tells USA TODAY. “So ‘The Little Mermaid’ has been banned. ‘Cinderella’ has been banned. I haven’t looked at ‘Snow White’ again, but that may be banned, as well.”
But all her empowering parenting may be for naught. “Of course (my daughter) wants to be a princess,” the 33-year-old sighs. “And I’m like, ‘You don’t want to be a princess, you want to be a queen. Because queens are in charge!’ But the more I’m saying that to her, the more she’s saying, ‘I want to be a princess!'” Knightley laughs. “But I think it’s just because she knows it annoys me. Which is fair enough.”
Knightley next stars in Disney’s “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms,” in which she plays the whispery Sugar Plum Fairy.
Good news for the Mouse House: Disney’s more modern fairy tales pass muster.
Knightley’s on board with the themes of sisterhood in “Frozen,” and “Moana’s great because she’s strong. Moana’s my favorite so far,” she declares.
